Sprinkler ordinary temperature selection criteria

Sprinkler ordinary temperature selection criteria

Sprinkler ordinary temperature selection criteria

(OP)
What would be the choice criteria between the two temperature ratings that manufacturers have for ordinary temperature (135 or 155 ºF)?

Ambient temperatures are normal. Datasheet also specifies the same máximum ambient temperature for both (100ºF).

thanks

RE: Sprinkler ordinary temperature selection criteria

Whichever one is cheaper / easier to get. Probably going to be the 155 degree every time.

Thanks both for the help.

Good point Travis. I checked that with the Victaulic sidewall EC and it appears only listed by UL for 135ºF.

RE: Sprinkler ordinary temperature selection criteria

I don’t know.

If your lines are at say 20 feet and you pipe down for the valve,,

Will you really get air out??

RE: Sprinkler ordinary temperature selection criteria
