The heart of Globe’s GL Series sprinkler proven actuating
assembly is a hermetically sealed frangible glass ampule that
contains a precisely measured amount of fl uid. When heat is absorbed,
the liquid within the bulb expands increasing the internal
pressure. At the prescribed temperature the internal pressure
within the ampule exceeds the strength of the glass causing the
glass to shatter. This results in water discharge which is distributed
in an approved pattern depending upon the defl ector style
