Abstract : The Automatic Sprinkler Pilotex System, is an ultra high speed fire suppression deluge. Operation from release actuation to delivery is accomplished in the millisecond range. High pressure priming of fire main pressure and simultaneous opening of all nozzles connected to one pilot line make the PILOTEX Deluge System unique. When a fire is detected, the solenoids are activated, pressure is relieved in the pilot line, which normally holds the valve closed in each discharge head. Because the detection is electronic and water is immediately available at the nozzle, an extremely fast response time is possible. Each PILOTEX piping system is specially designed to cover the hazard effectively. Different discharge patterns are available simply by adapting AUTO-SPRAY nozzles to the PILOTEX head.
