ISO 6182-5:2006

Fire protection -- Automatic sprinkler systems -- Part 5: Requirements and test methods for deluge valves

ISO 6182-5:2006 specifies performance requirements, methods of test and marking requirements for deluge valves and manufacturers' specified relevant trim used in deluge and pre-action automatic fire protection systems. Deluge valves covered by these requirements can be operated by hydraulic, pneumatic, electric, mechanical, manual, or thermal means or combinations thereof.

Performance and test requirements for other auxiliary components or attachments to deluge valves are not covered by ISO 6182-5:2006.

ISO 6182-5:2006 does not cover thermally operated valves released by heat acting directly on the valve. This type of valve utilizes a thermal device, such as the link-and-lever arrangement or glass bulb of a sprinkler, to hold the valve closed. Operation of the thermal device allows the valve to open.
