Cooking appliances today allow for the potentially dangerous mixture of flammable oils and greases with high efficiency heat sources, creating an environment in which fire is always a threat. Ventilating systems deposit grease from exhausted vapors throughout the hood, filters and ducts. Electrical power lines and gas service lines add fuel to the hazard area, and must be shut off in case of fire. Alarms and other electrical devices must be activated. The Pyro-Chem KITCHEN KNIGHT II system can protect all these diverse hazard areas and perform all the necessary auxiliary functions.
The KITCHEN KNIGHT II system has been tested and approved in accordance with the UL testing standard foStandard UL-300.
NFPA 17A Standard for Wet Chemical Extinguishing Systems requires that movable cooking equipment shall be provided with a means to ensure that it is correctly repositioned in relation to the appliance discharge nozzle during cooking operations. In many cases, the appliance discharge nozzle is hard piped to the appliance and renders the movement of the appliance difficult, requiring disconnection of the discharge piping.
The Agent Distribution Hose is designed for use with commercial kitchen appliances manufactured with or resting on casters (wheels/rollers) that have hard piped fire suppression systems. The Agent Distribution Hose is a component of the suppression system that allows the appliance to be moved for cleaning purposes without disconnecting the appliance fire suppression discharge piping and ensures positive positioning of the appliance nozzle.
