System Operation

Wet chemical systems are designed for protecting kitchen hood, plenum, exhaust duct, grease filters, and cooking appliances from grease fires. The versatile state-of-the-art wet chemical distribution technique, combined with dual, independent activation capability – automatic fusible link or manual release – provides efficient, reliable protection the moment a fire is detected. Once initiated, the pressurized wet chemical extinguishing agent cylinder discharges a potassium carbonate solution through a pre-engineered piping network and out the discharge nozzles. The discharge is maintained for a duration of time to ensure suppression and inhibit re-ignition. Expanded capability provides remote manual actuation, gas equipment shut down, and electrical system shut down. This optional equipment will enhance the basic system functions and be applicable when designing custom configurations to suit your needs or local codes.
