Fire suppression systems contain and extinguish flames by taking away the fire’s source of oxygen. In some cases, it is necessary to use specific fire suppression chemicals to put out flames rather than water. For instance, if you throw water on a grease fire, you can expect the flames to erupt even stronger. Never throw water on a grease or oil fire! Instead, stay safe in your commercial kitchen with Fireline’s kitchen fire suppression services in Laurel, Maryland.
About Kitchen Fire Suppression Systems
Kitchen fire suppression systems are one type of fire suppression system. The ones for commercial kitchens follow a standard design, and each model is customized to your commercial kitchen.
This technology includes wet chemical units, a smoke or heat detector, a manual pull station, and pipes that carry the wet chemical to its designated areas throughout the kitchen. The pipes’ nozzles target high-risk areas like above commercial ranges and other cooking appliances. When attached to the range, the system will automatically do three things: discharge the wet chemical, turn off the power, and turn on the exhaust fan. If the system does not turn on immediately, someone can pull the manual pull station to activate it.
Maintaining Your Kitchen Fire Suppression System
In daily life, you probably won’t be thinking about your kitchen fire suppression system. Hopefully, you will never have to see it in action. However, you do want it to be ready, and in some ways, it is always active, ready to take on flames should they arise. You want the system to be able to do its work if the unexpected happens.
That is why maintaining your kitchen fire suppression system is such a big deal. Without any inspections or tests, you never know if something happened to it in the meantime and if it can do its work to save your kitchen, business, and team.
A certified professional should inspect and test the fire suppression system twice a year, a standard set by the National Fire Protection Association. Your team should also keep these fire suppression system pipes clean and free from obstructions.
