Fire Sprinkler MIC testing

Huguenot Laboratories offers the most comprehensive laboratory analysis testing services for Fire Protection Systems (FPS). Our corrosion coupon testing kits allow for easy sampling of system waters and discovered deposits. Depending on which analysis is indicated, samples are captured and returned to the Laboratory for prompt analysis. A full analysis includes an Anaerobic and Aerobic MIC bacterium study, and 23 complete mineral comparison studies to determine if mineral deposition is a contributing factor in causing corrosion and under deposit corrosion. Testing services also includes an A.S.T.M. certified corrosion study to accurately determine the true corrosion potential of the supply waters. This detailed analysis provides clients accurate detailed information with viable corrosion mitigation options. Our Single Bottle analysis conforms to Building Uniform Code UFC 3‐600‐01 to determine the expected life cycle of the fire sprinkler systems components. Our deposit analysis kit is designed to assist clients in completing the required 5 year obstruction investigation testing protocol as required per NFPA 25, 2002 edition.

ICP-MS Deposit Analysis

ICP MS deposit analysis

Download Testing Services Factsheet

ICP-MS is a testing technique to determine the elemental analysis of the deposit material in question. Testing is based on the ionization of atoms by means of sustained argon plasma. Positive ions are accelerated into the mass separation device to be separated by mass/charge in the quadrupole or by mass and momentum in the Electrostatic Analyzer (ESA). ICP-MS is a highly effective technique for identifying the elemental components of a sample.

UFC 3-600-01 MIC Analysis

single bottle MIC analysis

Download the Product PDF

Typically completed on supply water for new military construction projects. Used to determine corrosion potential of supply water and determine if bacteria is present in the supply water.

This kit is designed to conform to the requirements of UFC code 3-600-01 4-2.3.2 requiring military installations to evaluate the supply water for both microbiological and alvanic corrosion.
The evidence of either may disqualify the use of schedule 10 pipe. As well as complying with 23.1.5 requiring water supply to be evaluated for MIC or other corrosive properties.

Upon receiving the sample, the lab will establish a chain of custody and prepare the sample for bacterium extraction. Six groups of bacteria will be cultured: Anaerobic Bacterium
which determines bacterium which do not rely on oxygen to survive, aerobic which need oxygen to survive. Slime Forming Bacterium (aids in tubercle formation); Iron Related Bacterium (iron-pipe oxidizing and reducing bacterium); Sulfate Reducing Bacterium (causes pit corrosion) and Acid producing Bacterium (causes pit corrosion) and Coliform Bacterium. A full written report with pictures will be provided detailing the types of bacteria present with CFU (Colony
Forming Units) counts. These CFU counts will be used to determine how aggressively the bacteria are affecting the piping. A corrosion analysis will also be conducted to determine the corrosion potential of the supply water resulting in a Mils Per Year Loss equation which will be used to
evaluate if schedule 10 pipe can be used. The testing will take  approximately 9 days to allow for bacteria culture growth.
