Abstract : Deluge sprinkler systems for the load, assemble and pack facility on a portion of the Joliet Army Ammunition Plant are described. These systems protect the following: people operated ammunition assembly machines; people operated explosive material handling systems; remotely controlled machines that load explosives into ammunition components. The systems installed at Joilet have electronic timers, fast acting pneumatic valves and back-up electronic circuitry to control the length of the deluge water flow. The systems can restart deluge water flow for a number of conditions. They have back-up fail-safe modes that allow for main power failure, air pressure and manual reaction to damaged equipment.
