The MICBlast® - Nitrogen Generation System was developed to inhibit FPS corrosion in Dry or Pre-action sprinkler piping by supplying dry, low pressure, supervisory Nitrogen (N2), which is an inert, non-flammable gas. South-Tek Systems engineers and manufactures Nitrogen Generation Systems for a variety of applications and for a range of purposes, including corrosion prevention. Corrosion develops as a result of unprotected metal coming in contact with both oxygen and water/residual moisture. Nitrogen gas works to inhibit corrosion by displacing any residual water left behind from hydrotesting as well as depleting the oxygen supply; both are necessary elements in the corrosion process. South-Tek Systems designed the compact MICBlast® - Nitrogen Generation System specifically for the purpose of inhibiting corrosion within FPS.
MICBlast.com is geared toward any owner/user of a Dry or Pre-action Fire Protection System. Architects and engineers, contractors, developers, building managers, and property owners can all benefit from the information and resources presented at MICBlast.com. In addition to specifics about the MICBlast®, the website and blog also provide facts about corrosion, photos of sprinkler pipe systems affected by corrosion, and the benefits of using Nitrogen gas to inhibit the development of corrosion.
"We are excited about the launch of MICBlast.com,"
