Operable & Maintainable Equipment

1 no. Electric booster pump set located in sprinkler pump room at basement level.

2no. Electric fire pumps located in sprinkler pump room at basement level.

1no. 80mm Wet installation control valve set, located in sprinkler pump room at basement
level.

2no. 100mm Dry installation control valve sets located in sprinkler pump room at basement
level.

The new installation valves are fitted with by-pass arrangements for use during routine valve
maintenance.

The pressure switches provided on the installation control valve sets (wired by others)
should be linked to the main building fire alarm system; indicating activation.

In the event of a fire the sprinkler system is fully automatic and does not require any
assistance.

In order to comply with BSEN 12845: The new installation valve sets should be serviced
every six months by a competent company, fully conversant with the requirements of LPC
Rules for Automatic Sprinkler Installations: incorporating BSEN 12845.

Should you wish us to provide a quotation for the service and maintenance, please contact
our Service Department on 0161 336 0001 or alternatively you can send an email to
Terri.Ball@adpsrinklers.co.uk.

STORAGE ARRANGEMENTS AND LIMITATIONS

Although the sprinkler system is designed to fight the fire it relies on the early response to
prevent the fire spread. The faster the sprinklers operate the more efficient they will be at
controlling and/or suppressing the fire.

Storage arrangements and methods play a vital role in keeping the sprinkler system fully
efficient.

Offices and all other rooms should always be kept tidy and a clearance of at least 500mm
should be maintained between the top of any goods and the sprinkler heads at the ceiling
level.

If in doubt seek advice from us or your insurance company.

1. DESCRIPTION
The Viking Model J-1 Alarm Check Valve serves as a check valve by
trapping pressurized water above the clapper and preventing reverse
flow from sprinkler piping. The valve is designed to initiate an alarm
during a sustained flow of water (such as the flow required by an
open sprinkler) by operating an optional water motor alarm and/or
alarm pressure switch. The valve is made suitable for use on variable
pressure water supplies by adding the optional retard chamber to the
standard trim.

A. Cut a 1-7/16” (36.5 mm) minimum to 1-5/8” (41.3 mm) maximum diameter hole in the building wall to accommodate the 3/4” (20
mm) galvanized spacer pipe. (Note: Spacer pipe is NOT included in Water Motor Alarm Package). The hole through the wall must
be level or pitched slightly downward toward the water motor.
B. Measure the wall thickness.
C. Cut and thread the spacer pipe to a length equal to: The wall thickness minus 1” (25.4 mm). If the extension mounting cup is
used, add an additional 3” (76 mm) to the spacer pipe.
D. Cut the drive shaft (10) to a length equal to: The total wall thickness plus 2-3/4” (70 mm). If extension mounting cup is used, add
an additional 3” (76 mm).
E. File the drive shaft to provide a 3/32” (2.4 mm) x 450 chamfer on both corners of both ends. File off all burrs and insert the drive
shaft into the hole of the striker arm shaft.
F. Slide the spacer pipe over the shaft and thread the end of the spacer pipe into the gong support assembly coupling (12).
G. Slide the closure plate (if used) over the free end of the spacer pipe, up to the back of the gong. If desired, the closure plate may
be fastened to the gong support by using the 9/32” (7.14 mm) diameter hole in the gong support. Use only a flat or round headed
fastener that will not interfere with striker arm movement.
H. Position the support assembly on the exterior wall surface by sliding the free threaded end of the spacer pipe into the hole from
outside the building.
I. On the inside surface of the wall: Slide the wall plate provided (9), over the free threaded end of the spacer pipe. (If an extension
mounting cup is used, place it over the end of the spacer pipe with the flared end toward the wall before sliding the wall plate
into position).

Telephone: 269-945-9501 Technical Services: 877-384-5464 Fax: 269-818-1680 Email: techsvcs@vikingcorp.com
J. Remove the plastic thread protectors from the threaded openings in the body of the water motor.
K. Attach the water motor assembly by threading the body (3) onto the free threaded end of the spacer pipe. The chamfered ends
of the drive shaft allow it to slide into position as the water motor body is threaded onto the spacer pipe. When the assembly
is properly tightened, the water motor should be positioned with the 1” (25 mm) NPT drain outlet facing downward and the
3/4” (20 mm) NPT alarm line inlet horizontal. See Figures 1 and 3.
L. Attach the gong, the flat washer, and the gong label (16, 17, and 18) to the gong support installed on the exterior surface of the wall,
with the 5/16-18 x 12” (13 mm) screw (19). Note: The flat washer must be installed between the gong and the gong support (17).
M. With galvanized, brass, or other approved corrosion-resistant piping, not less than 3/4” (20 mm) diameter, connect the water
motor inlet to the alarm outlet of the waterflow detecting device. A 3/4” (20 mm) strainer (included) is required on the alarm line
as close as possible to the alarm outlet of the waterflow detecting device (or outlet of the retard chamber if used). The location
must be easily accessible for cleaning.
N. The drain outlet of the impeller housing must discharge to an open drain. Care shall be taken to keep the drain line clean at all times.
O. Note: A water motor drain line that:
1. Has too many fittings, and/or
2. Has a very short length of pipe between the 1” (25 mm) outlet and the first elbow in the water motor drain pipe, and/or
3. Is very long may result in slow drainage and reduced water motor speed. This condition can be remedied by increasing the
drain pipe diameter, increasing the length of pipe to the first elbow, and/or pitching the pipe toward the discharge location.

5. OPERATION (See Figure 3)


When a sprinkler system is activated, water flows from the alarm outlet of the valve, through the 3/4” (20 mm) strainer and alarm line
piping, into the inlet of the water motor. From the 1/8” inlet orifice, the water flows through a nozzle (4), which restricts the flow into
a pressurized stream directed onto the impeller (7). Force from the water stream turns the impeller and drive shaft (10), causing the
striker arm (20) to rotate. The striker (25) impacts against the gong (16), producing a continuous alarm. A minimum of 5 PSI (.34 bar) is
required at the nozzle to cause a continuous alarm. When properly installed, the Model F-2 Water Motor Alarm produces the required
90 decibel output and the Model G-2 produces 100 decibels. After passing through the water motor, the water is discharged through
a 1” (25 mm) drain outlet in the bottom of the impeller housing. The discharged water must be piped through the wall to atmosphere
or to a suitable open drain.

6. INSPECTIONS, TESTS AND MAINTENANCE


Weather-resistant materials are used in the construction of the water motor alarm. At regular intervals, examine and test the water
motor to ensure that the nozzle and drain line are clean and free of obstruction, and that the alarm functions properly. Also, at regular
intervals and before disassembly of the water motor, clean and inspect the alarm line strainer located at the alarm outlet of the water-
flow detecting device, or the outlet of the retard chamber, if used. (Note: Some retard chambers may be equipped with a strainer built
in). For minimum maintenance and inspection requirements, refer to NFPA 25. In addition, the Authority Having Jurisdiction may have
additional maintenance, testing, and inspection requirements that must be followed. Before proceeding with disassembly of the water
motor alarm, notify the Authority Having Jurisdiction and occupants of the area covered by the system affected. Take all appropriate
precautions. The water motor alarm will be disabled during disassembly.
A. Water Motor Disassembly (See Figure 3)
1. Isolate the water motor alarm by closing the alarm line valve in the trim of the waterflow detecting device. (Refer to appropri-
ate technical data for the system used.)
2. Remove pipe plug (5).
3. Remove all round head machine screws (1) from the water motor cover.
4. Separate the cover (2) and the gasket (6) from the housing (3).
5. Remove the impeller (7).
6. Inspect and, if necessary, carefully clean the nozzle (4) with a wire or pipe cleaner brush.
7. Flush the nozzle way and drain line with water or compressed air.
B. Water Motor Re-Assembly
1. Re-install the pipe plug (5).
2. Re-install the impeller (7).
3. Replace cover gasket (6) and attach cover (2) by using round head machine screws (1).
4. Open the alarm line valve.
5. Test the water motor alarm.
6. When test is complete and water motor alarm operation is satisfactory, place the alarm line valve in the proper “alarm” posi-
tion. Reset and return the affected systems to service.

During fire conditions, the heat-sensitive liquid in the glass bulb expands, causing the glass to shatter, releasing the pip cap and
sealing spring assembly. Water flowing through the sprinkler orifice strikes the sprinkler deflector, forming a uniform spray pattern
to extinguish or control the fire.
6. INSPECTIONS, TESTS AND MAINTENANCE
Refer to NFPA 25 for Inspection, Testing and Maintenance requirements.
7. AVAILABILITY
The Viking Microfast® Quick Response Pendent Sprinkler VK302 is available through a network of domestic and international dis-
tributors. See The Viking Corporation web site for the closest distributor or contact The Viking Corporation.
