Paradigm Fire Protection Services Limited has invented Dry-Flo®, a DNV-verified, unique technology that allows deluge systems to be tested for performance without the use of water. Dry-Flo® effectively digitalizes the deluge system and quantifies flow accurately. Originally developed for oil and gas applications to minimize corrosion and the inherent disruption of wet testing operations. Dry-Flo® is also used in pharmaceutical, infrastructure such as tunnels and applications where wet testing cannot be done.
Wet testing is the current generally accepted verification method, but testing using water undoubtedly produces unwelcome side-effects, whether it be economic, environmental, disruption to process, or damage to equipment. Fabric maintenance is significantly impacted by wet testing, and over the life of the asset, the cost of repair can run into tens of millions of dollars.
