There are two primary types of fire suppression systems you can choose for fire safety. In this article we will discuss the two primary types of fire suppression systems and how to use them to protect yourself and others, as well as your property.
The two primary types of fire suppression systems are Dry Chemical and Wet Chemical systems.
Dry Chemical Fire Suppression Systems consist of dry chemical compounds that suppress fire effectively because they are easy to install in any industrial setting. The Dry Chemical Fire Suppression Systems provide excellent fire coverage. The Dry Chemical agents come in ABC or BC. You must recharge them after every operation. These fire suppression systems are affordable and great to use when a water supply is not available to help extinguish fires.
It is important to remember that Dry Chemical Systems are required to comply with NFPA 17 (Standard for Dry Chemical Extinguishing Systems) and NFPA 33 (Standard for Spray Application to safely use on flammable and combustible materials). It is also suitable to comply with the new Real World Criteria of UL 1254 (Standard for pre-engineered Dry Chemical Extinguishing System Units).
Wet Chemical Systems use wet agents to suppress commercial cooking fires. This method of fire protection helps prevent major fire damage from happening in your commercial cooking area.
The wet chemical fire suppression systems effectively work because the liquid spray hits a burning surface and quickly reacts with fats and oils to produce foam that cools the surface to prevent the re-igniting of a fire.
The wet Chemical Systems must comply with NFPA 17a (standard for wet chemical extinguishing systems) and NFPA 96 (Standard for Ventilation Control and Fire Protection for Commercial Cooking Operations).
The Benefits of Fire Suppression Systems
Fire Suppression Systems are necessary to have for fire safety because they provide early detection and help you quickly respond to life threatening fires as well as protect your property as much as possible. It is crucial to have fire systems that are immediately effective rather than time delayed. The systems automatically activate themselves to save lives and protect property. This is important because the fuel and electrical source of a fire can feed a fire even after a fire is ignited. Fire Suppression Systems will eliminate the fuel and electrical source of a fire instantly.
