Dry Deluge Testing
Clearwater Fire Solutions are exclusive UK agents for Siron Dry Deluge Testing. This technology is patented and has been extensively field tested and is used offshore regularly in the Dutch and UK sectors. Siron Dry Deluge Testing offers the client the justification needed to prove to the HSE and regulatory bodies that the deluge system remains in a fit for purpose condition in between mandatory wet testing.
Many operators are stuck in the cycle of repeated wet deluge testing on an increased frequency to meet the nozzle failure rate criteria rate set out in their Performance Standards. This will only exacerbate the build up of corrosion scale within the deluge system and ultimately cause more issues longer term.
With Siron Dry Deluge Testing used as part of a Fire System Integrity Assurance (FSIA) plan the operator can have complete justification to extend the periods between wet deluge testing out to 5 years or more potentially.
Dry Deluge Testing can be used on all material types and has no limit on the size of the system that can be tested. It is suitable for carbon steel, cunifer, duplex, stainless steel, titanium, flexible hose and fiberbond systems. Deluge systems remain live and online throughout the complete process and at no time is any equipment installed that impedes the flow path of firewater to the protected area.
