The inner ring is the waterring and the outer ring is the air annular space between the twoseat rings (intermediate chamber) isopen to the atmosphere via the alarmconnection trim piping to the normallyopen automatic ball drip water is provided above theclapper up to the level of the primingconnection. Above the priming water,compressed air (or nitrogen) ismaintained at a pressure sufficient tohold the clapper closed. The DryPipe Valve has a differential trip ratioof approximately 5 to 1. Thus thevalve will open (trip) when the airpressure in the system piping isreduced to approximately one-fifth ofthe water supply purpose of the priming water isto assist in providing a positive seal atthe air seat ring to prevent air fromescaping into the intermediatechamber and on to the clapper will remain in the closedposition as long as the air pressure inthe piping system is maintained at theproper a sprinkler operates, the airpressure in the piping system decaysdue to the air escaping from theopened sprinkler. When the airpressure has decayed to the pointthat it is no longer adequate to holdthe clapper shut, the water supplypressure lifts the clapper whichautomatically latches in the openposition. Water flows into the systempiping to the open sprinkler(s). At thesame time, water flows via theintermediate chamber into the alarmconnection trim piping (closing theautomatic ball drip valve) andcontinues on through the alarm line tooperate the pressure actuated alarmswitch and/or the water motor a sprinkler opens, theresulting air pressure decay isinversely proportional to the volumeof air in the sprinkler accordance with current NFPA13, the maximum allowable capacityof a single dry pipe system isnormally 750 gallons. The capacitymay exceed 750 gallons only if watercan be delivered to the inspector stest connection in 60 seconds or CompressorThe compressed air supply for thedry pipe system is usually providedby a continuously available,electrically driven, air compressorwhich is automatically controlled toturn on and off at the designedminimum and maximum pressures,respectively. After initialpressurization of the system, the airsupply is maintained through an in-line, 1/8" orifice in the piping of the AirMaintenance Device. The orifice issmall enough that when a sprinkleropens, the air supply will not interferewith the operation of the Dry PipeValve by rapidly supplying additionalair pressure to the upper chamber ofthe Dry Pipe air compressor must beadequately sized to be able to bringthe system air pressure up to thedesign level in 30 minutes or required size of the aircompressor in , may bedetermined from the = X System Capacity(gallons), where is the free airdelivery in cubic feet per minutebased on standard air at sea level.

Priming water must be retained inthe valve before the system can beplaced in service. After correctingany problems, repeat steps 3 18. Slowly open the main watersupply control valve to the sprinklersystem. When water starts todischarge from the main drain, slowlyclose the main drain valve (Fig. 5,#3). Then fully open the main watersupply control valve (O,S&Y, PIV orother).Step 19. Perform a Main Drain Test(see Main Drain Test Procedure).Step 20. Open the Alarm Test Valve(Fig. 5, #21), and then perform anAlarm Test (see Alarm TestProcedure).Step 21. Seal, lock, or otherwisesecure the Alarm Control Valve ( , #18) and the main water supplycontrol valve in the open system is now ready for 22. If alarms connect to acentral station or fire department,notify the signal receiving station thatthe system has been placed to completion of the installa-tion of a Dry Pipe System, the pipingmust be tested for strength and waterleakage (hydrostatic test) and for airleakage (air test). The test resultsmust be recorded on the Contractor sMaterial and Test TestThe 2-hour, 200 psi hydrostatic testof the sprinkler system piping must beconducted with the valve clapperlatched in the open position. Therubber seal on the face of the clappermay be ruptured if the valve is testedwith the clapper in the closed posi-tion. The test should be conductedas weather permits to prevent freez-ing of the TestThe 40 psi air pressure test of thesprinkler system piping must beconducted to verify there are no leaksthat would allow a pressure loss psi or more during the 24-hourtest TestingAfter the installation of a Dry PipeSystem is complete and prior to finalacceptance by the Authority HavingJurisdiction, the installer must con-duct a Main Drain Test, Alarm Test,and Trip Test. The test results mustbe recorded on the Contractor sMaterial and Test Certificate. Refer to the Trim AssemblyDiagram (Figure 5) which correlateswith the numbers noted in thefollowing procedures:Main Drain Test ProcedureThe purpose of the Main Drain Testis to show whether or not the normalwater supply is available to thesystem. By comparing the static andresidual water pressure readings withany previously established readings,a Main Drain Test can indicate thepossible presence of partially closedvalves or other obstructions in thesupply piping. To avoid propertydamage during testing, provisionmust be made for proper disposal ofwater issuing from the test procedure for conducting amain drain test is as follows:Step 1. While the Dry Pipe Valve is set , and the main drain valve isclosed, note and record the readingon the Water Pressure Gauge (Fig. 5,#36). This is the static 2. Open the main drain valve(Fig. 5, #3) slowly until it is wideopen. Verify that a full steady flow ofwater is discharging from the maindrain pipe. If a full steady stream isnot discharging, check the main drainpiping for 3. Allow the water to flow untilthe reading on the Water PressureGauge drops and stabilizes. Thenrecord this reading. This is theresidual 4. Close the main drain 5. Compare static and residualpressure readings with any previouslyestablished or normal readings. If thereadings compare favorably, thewater supply may be consideredsatisfactory. If the readings vary toany great extent, the condition shouldbe investigated to determine thecause. Some possible causes are:a. Partially or totally closed watersupply control Clogged or frozen water Serious leakage at water supplyvalves or Significant modifications to thewater supply system since theprior test. This may be verifiedwith the local water supply utilityor fire Test ProcedureUnlike wet sprinkler systems, it isnot practical to periodically test theoperation of the alarm connected to adry pipe system by opening theinspectors test valve normally locatedat the most remote position of thesystem piping. The reason being thatthe entire dry system piping would fillwith water, hence necessitating time-consuming system draining and alarms connect to a centralstation or fire department, notify thesignal receiving station prior to and atthe completion of the Alarm procedure for testing the alarmwithout tripping the system is asfollows:Step 1. Open the Alarm Test Valve(Fig. 5, #21). This will pressurize thealarm line, cause the pressure alarmswitch (if any) to activate and thewater motor alarm (if any) to 2. Close the Alarm Test Valve(Fig. 5, #21) to silence the Test ProcedureDry Pipe Valves should be triptested during warm weather,preferably in the summer to allow allcondensation to drain from thesystem piping before the onset ofcold proceeding with any trip testof a Dry Pipe Valve, the water supplyline to the system should be thor-oughly flushed. The system maindrain may be used for this purpose. Ifthere is a hydrant on the supply line,it should be used to flush the pipingbefore the main drain is : Assistance is required toperform some of the operations inthis test procedure for conducting afull-flow trip test is as follows:Step 1. While the dry pipe system is in service , open the main drain ( , #3) valve slowly until it is wideopen. Then check to make sure thata full steady flow of water isdischarging from the main drain the water to flow at full pressurelong enough to clear the water supplypipe of any accumulation of scale orforeign 2. Slowly close the main drainvalve. The Dry Pipe Valve is nowready for Trip 3.
