When preparing meals in large kitchens and catering establishments, large quantities of hot fat and oil are in use. Even when handled with the utmost care, they pose a considerable fire risk. An unnoticed failure in the overheating protection can easily cause a major fire. protecfire offers a competitively priced and effective solution for this.
Functionality and operation of a compact fine-spray extinguishing system:
In case of fire, the pneumatic trigger elements are automatically activated by the increasing temperature. The trigger temperature is set at 93°C. The triggering of the system causes a rise in pressure in the pilotline which serves as a signal for the extinguishing process. Our fire-fighting system is based on the principle of a finespray extinguishing system which atomizes the extinguishing agent as a fine mist with the aid of our own specially developed nozzles. In the extinguishing process, the surface of solids and cooking oil is thoroughly wetted and impregnated. A protective film is formed on flammable, liquid fat, blanketing fire areas with a sustainable gas-proof layer.
The protecfire extinguishing system is perfectly suitable for this area because of its tough compactness and insensitivity to external harsh environment. It is a very suitable solution for digging mineral coal because there are no electrical components in the system that could cause an ignition.
Since the system is almost maintenance-free, high expenses and downtimes are significantly reduced for the operating company. Multiple fire tests carried out by Deutsche Montan Technologie have proven the effectiveness of the extinguishing technology.
