“When it comes to kitchen hood fire suppression, we design hazard-specific wet chemical fire suppression systems to meet your needs and our factory trained technicians give you additional support by installing, upgrading, repairing and maintaining them on a consistent basis.”
Kitchen fire suppression systems work by reducing fires with a wet chemical. The chemical used depends on the manufacturer; However, it’s usually a potassium-based chemical. The chemical becomes a foam blanket under the hood which traps combustible vapors and prevents the fire from feeding on more oxygen. Another popular system on the market uses a wet chemical and water which keeps forming the foam blanket and cools the cooking equipment much faster.
