The Sacramento Valley Chapter of AFSA in coordination with Engineered Corrosion Solutions (ECS) will be offering a 6 hour seminar (Cal-Fire approved 0.6 CEU's) on the Science of Corrosion & Corrosion Management for Fire Sprinkler Systems.  To be held at the Western Electrical Contractors Association (WECA) on Thursday, November 2nd, 9am to 4pm with lunch being provided by ECS.

ECS Introduces New Corrosion Monitor for Fire Sprinkler Systems

**This course is approved by Cal Fire for the Continuing Education Requirements (30 hours per 3 year period) of the Fitter Certification Regulation (Title 19).***

Presentation Description: This presentation discusses the science of corrosion in fire sprinkler systems. The benefits and practical application of using Nitrogen Gas to inert Wet Pipe, Dry Pipe and Preaction Fire Sprinkler Systems to prevent and manage internal corrosion. Under a nitrogen atmosphere, oxygen corrosion, which is the primary cause of corrosion related failures in sprinkler systems, can be completely controlled resulting in reduced risk (life safety, leak and business continuity), enhanced performance, and extended life of the fire sprinkler system. 

Discussions will include: 

1. Understanding the operation of nitrogen generators 

2. Inspection testing and maintenance of nitrogen generators 

3. Reducing corrosion in wet pipe sprinkler systems 4. Eliminating oxygen corrosion in wet pipe sprinkler systems using ECS’s wet pipe nitrogen inerting (WPNI) protocol.
