5. OPERATION
During fire conditions, the heat-sensitive fusible element assembly disengages, releasing the seat and spring assemblies to open
the waterway. Water flowing through the sprinkler orifice strikes the sprinkler deflector, forming a uniform spray pattern to extinguish or control the fire.
6. INSPECTIONS, TESTS AND MAINTENANCE
Refer to NFPA 25 for Inspection, Testing and Maintenance requirements.
7. AVAILABILITY
The Viking Model VK607 Sprinkler is available through a network of domestic and international distributors. See The Viking
Corporation web site for the closest distributor or contact The Viking Corporation.
