Managing Corrosion Risk in Water-Based Fire Sprinkler Systems

Presented by Jeff Kochelek of Engineered Corrosion Solutions

This presentation will examine the science behind sprinkler pipe corrosion, the evolution of corrosion requirements from industry govnering bodies, benefits of using automatic air vents on wet pipe systems, nitrogen inerting for wet, dry, and preaction sprinkler systems, and the use of FM-approved nitrogen generators.

Mr. Kochelek has spent more than 30 years designing corrosion control strategies in a variety of applications including oil and gas operations, municipal and industrial wastewater and most recently in the fire protection industry, and has published numerous articles on the subject of corrosion in water-based fire sprinkler systems. He has been a member of the National Association of Corrosion Engineers (NACE), the American Chemical Society (ACS), the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) and is a member of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). He has numerous patent applications pending and has been granted 23 US and International patents regarding corrosion management in the fire protection industry.  He received his B.S. in Chemistry from St. Louis University.
