Fire Sprinkler MIC Testing

It’s important to keep all fire safety equipment in a building working properly. This include your fire sprinklers. As they’re a key component to fire prevention and fire fighting to keep your property and people in it safe. Mic Testing Fire Sprinklers is an important way to ensure your fire suppression systems work at their most effective at times of great need. It helps ensure that corroded pipes, fittings, sprinkler heads, and more, are taken care of to prevent risk of non function

What is MIC Testing for Fire Sprinklers?

Fire sprinklers are a critical component of fire safety, but they can be vulnerable to Micro-biologically Influenced Corrosion (MIC). MIC Testing Fire Sprinklers Systems is essential to prevent this. Our specialized testing procedures focus on detecting and addressing MIC in your fire sprinkler system, ensuring its reliability and longevity.

Once an appointment is set, we will show up, and start collecting samples of water to test for any signs of corrosion within the sprinkler pipe’s system.

Then once collected, these MIC samples undergo specialized testing. During this test, we search for any corrosive bacteria like APB, SRB, or IRB.

Then a full report showing the test results will display if any microbiological influenced corrosion has taken place, and the steps to follow next to treat it. If needed.

Can I avoid MIC testing fire sprinklers?

When it comes to MIC testing for fire sprinkler systems, it is not mandatory. But it is highly recommended to ensure the safety and reliability of the system in the long run.

How can we identify the cause of of corrosion with MIC testing?

To test for Microbiological Influenced Corrosion (MIC), we get samples from the fire sprinkler system piping and analyze the samples. Based on these results, the system will need a custom plan for mitigation of MIC.

How often should MIC Testing for
fire sprinklers be performed?

MIC testing for fire sprinkler systems should ideally be performed annually to ensure early detection and prevention of micro-biologically influenced corrosion.

Can MIC testing help prevent fire sprinkler system failures?

Yes, Microbiological Influenced Corrosion Testing can prevent fire sprinkler system failures by identifying and addressing MIC early on. Which reduces the risk of pipe degradation and potential system malfunctions.

How Do You Test For MIC In A Fire Sprinkler System?

When it comes to testing for Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion, is fairly simple. It all starts with samples of water we collect and analyze soon after to detect a presence of MIC causing bacteria through a variety of testing methods. Our testing methods are certified by A.T.C.C., and ensures accuracy, and samples undergo analysis for SRB, APB, IRB, HAB, and SLYM bacteria groups. Our chart below shows the overall severity/overall MIC rating.

Overall Contamination LevelBasis
HighMinimum of two “High” MIC bacteria (APB,SRB, OR IRB)
MediumMinimum of one “HIgh” or “Medium” MIC Bacteria (APB,SRB, or IRB)
LowThree “Low” MIC Bacteria (APB, SRB, or IRB)
