Fire Suppression Systems

There are several kinds of fire suppression systems. Each of them has a specific use. Kitchen systems, for example, are clearly utilized over kitchen ranges and broilers. Others, such as clean agent, paint booth, foam, and CO2 systems, are used in situations when water or other suppressing agents may cause more harm than benefit.

When a fire starts, these devices are activated automatically depending on a temperature specified by the environment’s specific demands. Proper placement and coverage of a system’s heat/smoke detectors and spray nozzles are important to extinguishing a fire properly. Every day, we create systems that meet or surpass the requirements of each circumstance.

When to Inspect

  • Twice per year.
  • Nitrogen Flush every other inspection.
  • 6-Year Maintenance on tank required every 6th year for Dry Chemical systems only.
  • Hydrostatic Testing required on tank every 12th year.

Process of Inspection

  • The inspection will include fusible link and nozzle cap replacement, among other items, proper function of exhaust fan, adequate coverage, pull station set, and other areas of concern. A nitrogen flush will ensure piping is unobstructed.
  • 6-Year Maintenance requires discharging the tank and refilling it with Dry Chemical.
  • 12-Year Hydrostatic Testing requires discharging the tank and submerging it in water to test its integrity. It will be refilled if it passes the test and replaced if it does not.
  • Quarterly Hood Cleaning is recommended for heavily used kitchen ranges. Significant grease buildup can interfere with system readiness in between inspections
