Wet chemical suppression system is used to protect modern commercial kitchen from potential threats like open flame, red hot cooking surface and heavily grease laden environment which in turn leads to oil and grease fires.
The fire suppression system is a pre-engineered wet chemical fixed nozzle piped system as manufactured by FIREX and called as the FIREX KITCHENHOOD FIRE SUPPRESSION system. The system has been tested and approved by local Civil Defence standard and meets the provisions of National Fire Protection Association’s “Standard for the installation Equipment for the Removal of Smoke and Grease Laden Vapors from Commercial Cooking Equipment,” NFPA 96. The system is designed to provide protection for ventilating hoods and ducts and appliances such as fryers, griddles, range tops, upright broilers, charbroilers, etc., as specified elsewhere in the kitchen specifications. The system is capable of automatic and manual operation.
Agent – The agent is FIREX-BURNSTOP EX300 wet chemical for Kitchen Hood. Upon discharge the wet chemical suppresses the flame by interrupting the chain reaction that causes combustion. The wet chemical also helps to inhibit re-ignition by reacting with the hot grease to form a soap-like foam. The foam aids in insulating the hot grease from the atmosphere and helps to prevent hot vapors from escaping. The chemical is environmentally friendly. Does not harm to human and nature.
Cylinder – The wet chemical cylinder is of steel constructed, tested, and approved by the local Civil Defence and in accordance with provisions of National Fire Protection Association requirement.
Discharge Nozzles – All discharge nozzles are designed and tested for use with this system. Nozzles shall be selected for the hazard they are designed to protect as illustrated in the installation manual. All nozzles shall be provided with blow- off caps to keep foreign matter from entering the nozzle.
