DESIGN & INSTALLATION
From our very beginnings in 1946, Koorsen Fire & Security has been helping businesses protect unattended fuel outlets, paint booths, transformers, switchgear rooms, and wood finishing operations with dry chemical fire suppression systems. These systems release a dry chemical powder to suppress a fire in a designated space. From design to installation to continued inspections and service, our dry chemical suppression experts will ensure your hazard is protected.
INSPECTION & TESTING
Dry chemical fire suppression systems are typically required to be inspected and tested every 6-months, depending on the type of system. This includes inspecting the initiating devices, fusible links, release devices, piping, nozzles, cylinders and signal. Our team of experts understand the importance of a properly functioning suppression system and will work hard to ensure they will be ready if needed.

They are typically required to be inspected every 6-months by a certified clean agent technician. They require maintenance every 6-years and a 12-year hydrostatic test depending on manufacturer.
