we have 4 sprinklers with 2 ft pipes and fittings for each installed inside of a dust collector in the shop. The whole dust collector will be shipped to the field for installation, and the sprinklers will be connected to the fire water system in the field also. my question is: for the 4 sprinklers with 2 ft pipes and fittings, do we need to do any leak test in our shop before the dust collector is shipped to the field? if a leak test is needed, what will it be based on NFPA codes? will a 100 psi air leak test in shop be acceptable? thanks
