What is an Ansul Kitchen Fire Suppression System?

Ansul manufactures kitchen fire suppression systems for commercial kitchens, restaurants, and other commercial food preparation areas. Their fire suppression systems work by using chemicals to stop fires from spreading.

Their automatic fire suppression systems are pre-engineered and can put out huge, dangerous fires without the need for human intervention.

Due to its numerous features and mechanisms that make it the safest and most dependable option, this kitchen suppression system is used the most frequently worldwide. In fact, they are now specifically listed as a necessity for insurance due to their widespread usage.

Extinguishing Chemical Targets Burning Fat

In principle, these systems are comparable to sprinkler systems developed expressly for commercial cooking appliances. They are intended to protect areas connected to ventilation, grease extraction, and cooking equipment. It uses a specialized liquid extinguishing chemical that targets burning fat, making it appropriate for these settings.

How Do I Know If I Need an Ansul Kitchen Fire Suppression System?

If your building has commercial deep-fat frying equipment, you need a fire suppression system to protect your building and the people there.

Any cooking area greater than 0.4 square meters requires a fixed solution as opposed to anything portable and manually operated, such as a fire extinguisher or blanket.

How Do Ansul Kitchen Fire Suppression Systems Work?

Specific discharge nozzles are used in Ansul Kitchen Systems, which are mounted above or close to each hazardous appliance, behind grease extractors, and into the ductwork. A low-pH liquid fire suppressant at a predetermined flow rate will automatically spray over any potentially dangerous surfaces and apparatus when a fire is detected.

The liquid fire suppressant's functions are to douse the flame, cool the surface, and interact with the blazing fat to form a soap-like layer. This layer will act as a barrier between the atmosphere and the burning fat, preventing the release of combusting vapors, which would otherwise result in re-flash.

The device offers a manual activation option in addition to being automatically activated when it senses a fire. A remote manual pull station can accomplish this. If necessary, applications for electrical shutdown, gas line shutoff, and connections to fire alarm panels are provided.
