Corrosion Solutions

Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion (MIC) has recently been discovered as a contributing force in corrosion of wet, dry, and pre-action fire sprinkler systems. Symptoms of MIC include pinhole leaks, smelly water, black water, and tubercles.


These symptoms were long considered to be "normal" for fire sprinkler systems and to be part of the industry. Unfortunately, these corrosive symptoms have increased in the last few years, costing the industry millions of dollars annually. Further investigation has discovered that MIC is a leading factor, causing some to look for solutions to their corrosion problems before they cause extensive damage.
