Piranha Fire Suppression System:

The only agent-plus-water fire suppression hybrid on the market today, Ansul Piranha systems outperform all conventional single-agent systems on a number of fronts. Ansul Piranha systems attack fire using the rapid flame knockdown and securing capabilities of PRXTM Liquid Fire Suppressant. Then, the superior cooling effects of water follow, quickly cooling the cooking media and further helping to prevent reflash.
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.
  • 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

Applications Best Suited for Ansul Piranha Fire Suppression System

  • Casual & Fine Dining
  • Fast-Food Chains
  • Culinary Schools
  • Sports Complexes and Stadiums
  • Four- and Five-Star Lodging Facilities

In UL300 testing, the Ansul Piranha system cooled hot grease 15 times faster than single-agent wet systems, required 60% less chemical agent, covered hazard areas better and provided a cost-effective means to protect the cooking equipment.

Ansul Piranha systems are available in various sizes that can be combined for multiple configurations to expand the suppression system coverage. Depending on your type of facility, we will design a system that offers you the ultimate in fire protection.

Tests using the "Double-Agent" Concept have shown dramatically increased firefighting performance.

Amerex KP Restaurant Fire Suppression System

The Amerex KP Restaurant System is a pre-engineered, wet chemical, stored-pressure type with a fixed nozzle agent distribution network. The system agent is Amerex KP liquid fire suppressant, a potassium acetate based solution that suppresses cooking grease fires both through saponification and cooling. The agent has a pH of 9 or less and does not harm stainless steel surfaces.

When a fire starts, the detection network, consisting of fusible links or pneumatic tubing, will automatically detect the fire or the manual pull station can be used, releasing a low pH agent throughout the hood, duct and onto the appliances.Either method of actuation will interrupt gas or electrical power to the appliances preceding system discharge. The Amerex KP agent quickly suppresses the fire and cools the fuel while securing the vapors with a smothering foam reaction.

Applications Best Suited for Amerex KP Restaurant Fire Suppression System

  • Casual Dining
  • Fast-Food Chains
  • Cruise Ships
  • School Cafeterias
