Kitchen Hood Fire Suppression Systems
The modern commercial kitchens serve up a host of fire hazards
The modern commercial kitchens serve up a host of fire hazards due to accumulation of flammable grease on kitchen equipments and high temperature in environment.
Ventilating systems deposit grease from cooking vapors throughout the hood, filters, and ducts. Electric power and gas services increase the risk of fire and, thus, should be switched off before beginning fire. Akronex’s fire extinguishing system inside hood protects all different areas of risk and provides all additional functions.

Akronex’s liquid agent is designed to use in fire fighting systems into hoods and K class extinguishers. This liquid agent is effective against fire caused by oils that accumulate onto kitchen equipments and ventilation systems. Do not use at fires arising from the electrical circuits.
Akronex’s liquid is a specially designed chemical inorganic salt solution. The agent is pre-mixed, therefore eliminating necessity of distillation before system’s filling. When used as fire extinguisher the agent doesn?t reveal any toxic substances.

WARNING: Be careful when using the agent. In case of contact with eyes or skin should be rinsed with water within 15 minutes. In case of absorption of agent, drink milk or water and immediately seek medical advice.
Application of Akronex’s wet agent with Akronex’s fire suppression systems inside hood or Akronex’s extinguishers is more effective in fire fighting into ventilation systems (exhaust, chimney, etc.) and stoves (deep fryers, cookers, wok, grill etc.) Acceptable environmental temperature is 49oC. The fire extinguisher reaches the burning surface of kitchen equipment, cooling them and reacts with hot fat (saponification reaction), forming a soap suds layer on the fat?s surface. This layer performs the function of insulation between the hot fatty film and atmosphere, preventing the release of flammable vapors and oxygen supply, thereby eliminating the risk of reigniting.
