Web Exclusive-Tyco Fire & Building Products Flow Switch Tester
June 3, 2005
Tyco Fire & Building Products has introduced the Zonecheck flow switch tester.
Tyco Fire & Building Products, a business unit of Tyco Engineered Products & Services, has introduced the Zonecheck flow switch tester. The Zonecheck flow switch tester performs quarterly flow switch tests through a simple key switch operation that reduces testing time and allows for multiple zone key-switches to be operated from one master. Installed directly onto the pipe housing the flow switch, the Zonecheck simplifies testing by recirculating the water within the pipe around the flow switch, simulating the flow of one fire sprinkler in operation, and causing the actuation of the flow switch. This built-in design eliminates the need for water to be expelled from the system or the need for the opening of inspector test valves, saving up to 400 gallons of water per switch annually.
