AGF Manufacturing revolutionized the fire sprinkler industry with the Model 1000 TESTanDRAIN® single valve inspector’s test, which eliminated the time-and-space-consuming traditional loop assembly. Since then, TESTanDRAIN® valves have been installed on many fire protection systems throughout the world. TESTanDRAIN® valves are now made in more styles, in more sizes, and with more orifice options than any other valve on the market.
TESTanSAVE is a water containment system for fire sprinkler systems that recirculates the test water through the system during testing instead of discharging the test water to the outside.
For a sprinkler system to work effectively it needs to be tested regularly and each sprinkler system test requires regular water use. Usually, test water is released outside of the building wasting numerous gallons of water each test cycle. In this age of water conservation, AGF offers an alternative.
TESTanSAVE recirculates the sprinkler system test water back through the supply riser, eliminating the need to reintroduce new water into the sprinkler system during testing. Its three-step process is simple. First, water is brought in to perform the inspector's test on the first floor. Next, instead of water being drained to the outside, test water is recirculated into the system through the TESTanSAVE. Then, the recirculated water is used to perform the inspector's test on all the additional floors.
