Freeze Protection & UL Listed Antifreeze for Fire Sprinkler Systems

Presented by Manuel Silva, Chief Engineer & Fellow, Johnson Controls Fire Suppression Products

In 2010 the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) introduced restrictions and new requirements for the use of antifreeze in fire sprinkler systems as result of a fire incident involving a sprinkler system that contained a high concentration antifreeze solution.  In addition, NFPA has established a 2022 deadline that will require all antifreeze in use to be replaced with a listed antifreeze.  The development of an antifreeze that can be safely and effectively used in a fire sprinkler system must take into consideration a number of critical factors such as solution stability, material compatibility, fire fighting effectiveness and exposure to fire.  This presentation focuses on the tests and examinations required in order to achieve a listing for use in fire sprinkler systems and how a new listed antifreeze is beneficial to the evolution of the fire sprinkler industry.
