First, many did answer your question.  A K17 upright by other than Tyco is
not available on the market.  That was stated a couple times.  Then, others
offered some possible alternatives that could be investigated for your
specific project by a qualified fire sprinkler professional.

 

Now, based on the information below, either you are misunderstanding what he
is stating, or you need to find a new sprinkler design guy.  That doesn't
make any sense.  As long as your pump + city supply do not exceed 175 psi at
the ESFR sprinkler, then you are good with that respect.  Now, the pipe
sizing may not be able to deliver the needed water, but that is something
different.

That is true.  No one has come forward with what I requested as of yet.  My
need is specific as I am purchasing a used diesel split case pump that is
2000 gallons per minute and my sprinkler design guy claims the pump is too
high pressure for ESFR sprinklers heads that have a k factor of 16.8 or
less.  So I have to use upgraded high pressure fittings as well as Upright
heads that have a high Kfactor.  This is for high pile warehouse storage
30,000 sqft 20 foot stred racks. Any help here?

Just to clarify, in case anyone wasn't aware, the referenced EC storage
sprinklers, Tyco TY9128 and the Viking V595, are not ESFR sprinklers. 

They are CMDA / CMSA standard response.

Most of the responses do not seem to have answered your question if you are
specifically looking for an upright ESFR sprinkler.

 

To my knowledge, the K17 Tyco TY7126 is the biggest upright ESFR unless you
go Extended Coverage K25: TY9128 and Viking VK595.

If you can go standard response (CMSA) then there are more choices. K17:
TY7153, TY7151, VK580 and Reliable RA1124.  Then K25 VK598 and Victaulic
V4603.

Good morning all.  I am looking for an expert in ESFR sprinkler heads to
help me find a ESFR upright head with at least a K factor 17(not 16.8).
There does not seem to be other companies that make these ESFR other Tyco.
Please let me know.  Thanks.
