Wet Chemical Fire Suppression Systems


ANSUL ‐ Restaurant Fire Suppression Systems

When it comes to protecting your kitchen equipment from fire, ANSUL® products protect more food service kitchens than any other brand: from the time-tested R-102™ liquid agent system to the ultimate dual-agent protection only a PIRANHA® system can provide.

You’ll find ANSUL systems in diners, fast-food chains, food courts, sports complexes, cafeterias, convenience stores, hotels, gourmet restaurants, and other food service kitchens.

R-102™ Fire Suppression Systems

The ANSUL® R-102™ Liquid Agent System continues to be the #1 protector of today’s kitchen equipment. Choose from either of two design options:

Appliance-Specific Design - The most efficient fire protection is accomplished when nozzles are selected and aimed at specific hazard areas on each appliance. This method typically provides the most economical use of liquid agent reducing the size or quantity of storage tanks and associated hardware.

Overlapping Appliance Protection - When flexibility and simplicity are most important, nozzles are placed in a straight-line arrangement providing overlapping agent discharge patterns. This creates a virtual fire-free zone where appliances of various types and sizes are protected - even if they are replaced or rearranged under the hood.

R-102™ Overlapping Application Protection

THIS IS BIG! ANSUL® R-102™ Overlapping Appliance Protection has EXPANDED. Greater spacing between nozzles and simplified piping guidelines are just two of the many enhancements now offered. When flexibility and simplicity are the mostimportant features for a kitchen design, ANSUL Overlapping Appliance Protection provides a virtual zone of protection where appliances of various types and sizes are protected – even if they are replaced or rearranged under the hood.

  • Nozzle Spacing – Expanded from 12 in. (305 mm) to 25.5 in. (647 mm).
  • New Simplified Piping Rules
  • Range Protection
  • Hardware Reduced
  • Appliances may be interchanged freely or upgraded
  • Existing Appliance Specific Nozzles
  • Detection Placement
  • Standard R-102 Components

Overlapping system design is flexible and simple. Nozzles are installed in a straight line with a maximum nozzle spacing of 25.5 in. (647 mm) and a height of 40-45 in. (1016-1143 mm) above the cooking surface. In this design nozzles are not aimed individually at specific appliances but instead are consistently aimed at the hazard zone centerlines. These overlapping discharge patterns create a continuous zone of protection in which all appliances within this area are protected. Piranah Fire Suppression System

PIRANHA® Fire Suppression Systems

ANSUL® PIRANHA® systems employ the best firefighting attributes of two extinguishing agents...

  • The fast flame knockdown and securing power of wet chemical.
  • The fast cool-down capability of water.

Tests using the “Double-Agent” Concept have shown dramatically increased firefighting performance…

  • Twice the coverage of conventional single-agent systems
  • Cools down cooking oils 15 times faster than wet chemical systems
  • Flexible overlapping nozzle coverage for most appliance arrangements
  • Smaller and fewer agent storage tanks required per system
