How to order a TOTALPAC®3

Ordering a Viking TOTALPAC®3 with the Conventional Trim and the VFR-400 Releasing Panel is simple. Indeed, a basic system includes the system valve, its releasing trim and its supporting assembly, whether it is a skid, a remote controlled cabinet without control panel or a self-contained unit with control panel. And all this is included under a single part number.

You will notice that the Configuration Form resembles a matrix. For easy use, it is divided into 10 sections which follow the way the new User Manuals are also designed:

  • Preaction systems (non, single & double interlock)
  • Deluge systems
  • Wet pipe systems
  • Dry pipe systems (normal & HP)
  • Firecycle III systems
  • Surefire systems

And it is followed by:

  • System options (shut-off valve, FD connection, etc.)
  • VFR-400 control panel options (zones, relays, batteries, etc.)
  • Air supplies (the usual 4 styles – A,B,C & D), and then
  • Air supply options (dehydrator, accelerator, etc.)
  • Seismic option

To order a TOTALPAC®3 using the Configuration Form:

  • Select the type of system required on your project (preaction, deluge, dry, etc...).
  • Choose the style of system required (skid mounted, remote controlled or self-contained) and its release system (electric, pneumatic, etc.).
  • Follow this line to the proper part number under the column of the system size (TotalPac®3 units are available under 6 sizes: 1½", 2", 3", 4", 6" and 8" diam.). This is the part number that should be ordered.
  • Add the required system options to complete your order and you are done!

Factory assembly of the TOTALPAC® 3 cabinets ensures that all components have been carefully integrated. All systems are fully programmed and tested at the factory which facilitates the onsite installation and commissioning process.

The FIREFLEX® cabinets are of the freestanding type and are made of robust 14 gauge steel with a corrosion resistant fire red paint finish, polyester powder-coated and oven-baked on a phosphate base. Cabinets are also provided with two locked frontal doors that are removable without special tools, reducing space requirements for ease of installation and maintenance. Furthermore, all doors are provided with a neoprene gasket to reduce vibrations.

Our adaptability, in order to better meet our customers' needs, is our main priority. Consequently, here is the available range of options for the TOTALPAC® 3 units.

Anti-column Device

The model LD-1 anti-column device is an optional trim component designed for use with preaction sprinkler systems. The anti-column device automatically prevents an unwanted water column from establishing within the system riser. On preaction sprinkler systems the anti-column device prevents water from columning downstream of the easy riser check valve.

Air Supply for Cabinets

The automatic sprinkler piping is supervised by compressed air from a source installed inside or outside the cabinet. The air supply must be regulated. When the compressor option is selected (air supply style “A”), the motor must be sized to restore normal system air pressure within 30 minutes as per NFPA 13 requirements.

  1. Air supply style “A”: is used to supervise the sprinkler piping network of dry or preaction systems. This option includes an oilless piston-type air compressor with supervisory trim integrated in the TOTALPAC® 3 cabinet and factory piped to the system riser.
    Air compressors have open, single-phase motors with internal thermal protection.
  2. Air supply style “B”: is provided with an air pressure maintenance device factory mounted and adjusted in the TOTALPAC® 3 cabinet and piped to the air inlet port of the unit. Used to supervise and restrict the sprinkler piping network of dry or preaction sprinkler systems when the external air supply (by tank-mounted air compressor, plant air or dry nitrogen cylinders) is provided by others.

    Note: the air supply must be restricted to ensure that it cannot replace air as fast as it escapes when a releasing device or sprinkler operates.
  3. Air supply style “C”: is provided with an air pressure maintenance device factory mounted in the TOTALPAC® 3 cabinet. Used only for the pilot line of a pneumatically operated system.
  4. Air supply style “D”: is provided with an air supervisory switch and shut-off trim. Used for freezer application with external air supply and regulation.

Riser Shut-off Valve Option

RISER SHUT-OFF VALVE OPTIONThe riser shut-off valve option consists of a supervised butterfly valve which allows for a full flow trip test without flooding the system’s piping and a sight glass located on the main drain for visual indication of the water flow.




Fire Department Connection Option

The fire department connection is available only on the right side of the cabinet.

Semi-flanged Option

The semi-flanged system option is a flanged inlet and riser connections, threaded drain.
