Fire sprinkler drain valve

The Never-Trip drain valve assembly adds value to a building’s fire sprinkler system and benefits building owners by reducing costs and maintenance.


A solution for draining condensate from dry fire sprinkler systems, the Never-Trip drain valve assembly from Metraflex adds value to a building’s fire sprinkler system and benefits building owners by reducing costs and maintenance.

Building owners spend thousands of dollars getting sprinkler systems back on line after it has been accidentally tripped by accidentally opening the wrong valve in a drum drip valve system. Additionally, ball valves freeze and break in colder climates, creating additional expense and maintenance issues. The Never-Trip valve, which meets NFPA 13, replaces the old drum drip system and eliminating human error, with a single valve that will never trip the fire sprinkler system and won’t freeze and break like ball valves.
