Dry Pipe Fire Systems
Instead of being filled with water, the dry pipe system is filled with pressurized air or nitrogen. The air or gas will hold the dry pipe water valve in a closed position, preventing water from entering the pipes. However, should a fire break out, the sprinklers activate and the air is released, taking pressure off the valve and allowing water to flow to the sprinkler heads.
