Dyne is excited to be featured in the Mar/Apr 2022 issue of Sprinkler Age magazine
The article Sprinkler Obstruction Discharge- Signs a Sprinkler May Not Discharge as Designed is found on pages 36-37. Dyne also has an ad on page 43.
When considering obstructions to sprinkler discharge, do not overlook the condition of the sprinkler itself. For a sprinkler to discharge properly, the release mechanism must activate at the designed temperature, the water seal must clear the waterway immediately upon activation, and then the deflector must direct the appropriate amount of water to the designated areas unobstructed. If there is any issue in any of these steps, sprinkler discharge may be obstructed or, in the worst case, may not occur at all.
