If you coordinate upfront bid documents and are planning to have a dry sprinkler system on your project, you probably get the same question from electrical engineers as I do - how large will your compressor be?
It can be a difficult question to answer, considering there's multiple manufacturers and a handful of different options in choosing the right compressor for your project.
NFPA 13 requires that a dry system have an air supply capable of restoring normal air pressure for the system within 30 minutes (NFPA 13 2002-2010 Section 18.104.22.168.2, 2013-2016 22.214.171.124.2).
Fortunately, we've got a Sprinkler System Volume Calculator that indicates compressor sizes associated with your system volume.
