Wet, dry or pre-action; every fire protection system is at risk of experiencing corrosion. It is one of the most important issues facing our industry today. South-Tek Systems manufactures state-of-the-art technology specializing in corrosion inhibition. But what is the driving force behind corrosion? The answer is oxygen. Wherever oxygen interfaces with metal and water, there will be corrosion. That is why South-Tek Systems’ safe, green, cost-efficient solutions are what Europe has been waiting for.
Studies show that replacing compressed air with high purity nitrogen (98%+) effectively inhibits the corrosion process in dry and pre-action Fire Protection Systems. Utilizing industry-exclusive PSA technology, South-Tek generators produce high purity nitrogen to maintain positive pressure in both dry and pre-action systems.
South-Tek’s FM-Approved and UL-Listed nitrogen generators are installed in over 10,000 locations worldwide. Now with CE approval, STS has begun to provide its award winning products in Europe.
For wet system corrosion, South-Tek manufactures wet air vents, nitrogen inerting kits, and the only water deoxygenation system in the industry.
