The NX007/NX008 Standard/Quick Response Concealed pendent Sprinklers (Ref.Figure A) are automatic sprinklers of the frangile bulb type. They are “standard/quick response – standard orifice spray sprinkler”intended for use in fire sprinkler systems designed in accordance with the stndard installation rules recognized by the applicable listing or approval agency(e.g., UL listing is based on NFPA 13 requirements). The concealed pendent sprinklers all produce a hemispherical water distribution pattern below the deflector.
This model sprinkler includes a cover plate assembly that conceals the sprinkler operating components above the ceiling. The cover plate assembly, which installs onto the sprinkler/mounting cup assembly,consists of a cover plate that is soldered to an enclosure at three equidistant locations around their peripheries. The ejection spring is located between the flange of the Enclosure and the cover plate, to ensure separation of the two pieces when the solder melts.
