    TiboRex® Absolute
    Special Liquid Extinguish Agent

    TiboRex Absolute is a ready-to-use liquid special extinguishing agent without the addition of fluorochemicals for the highly effective extinguishing of solid fires (fire class A), liquids, non-polar hydrocarbons (fire class B) and edible fats and oils. The special formulation, whose main components are also used as food additives, guarantees exceptional extinguishing performance with unprecedented environmental protection.

    Object by Object protection

    In the design of the extinguishing concept, the focus is not on protecting the kitchen as an area but instead on protecting individual objects. In Kitchens, the following critical points are to be protected:
    • Extractor (outside / inside)
    • Burn / flame equipment
    • Oil / fryer equipment
    Fires can thus be detected quickly and efficiently so that a spread of the fire source is prevented in the initial phase.
    What are the features of the fire-suppression system?

    The fire-suppression system is based on the principle of a fine spray extinguishing system.

    The protecfire nozzles spray the extinguishing agent  as very fine droplets.

    The extinguishing agent droplets wet, impregnated and cool the burning surfaces.

    Through reflections and turbulence, the extinguishing agent also reaches adjacent areas, which enables the entire engine compartment to be protected.

    Other features:
    • Unpressurised standby mode for improved safety: The fire-suppression system is not pressurized until it is triggered.
    • Low maintenance: first regular component replacement after 10 years.
    • Self-sustaining without external energy: protecfire suppression systems operate pneumatically-mechanically. This means that they do not require any additional power supply.
    • Automatic and/or manual triggering: Automatic triggering is effected by fire detection elements. The fire-suppression system can also be triggered by a pneumatic manual release mechanism.
    How does fire detection work?

    protecfire uses thermo-pneumatic fire detection elements to detect fire. These elements only trigger the fire-suppression system if a specified temperature is exceeded. Failure due to the failure of electrical components is thus ruled out.
    Fire detection elements with different triggering temperatures can be used because the engine compartment is not a thermally homogeneous area, but contains different temperature zones.

    What happens in the event of a fire?

    The fire detection elements are connected to a combined control and extinguishing line, the detexline. When a fire detection element is heated to its trigger temperature, a mechanism opens the built-in argon propellant cartridge. This causes an increase in pressure in the line. The pressure increase opens an N2 propellant cartridge in the extinguishing agent container. The released propellant presses the extinguishing agent through the line to the extinguishing nozzles.


    In which buildings and cases can the suppression system be applied?
    The system is free of dangers and easy to install. It can be installed in any restaurant kitchen, food area, production, food factory.

    Where is the automatic detection and extinguishing system placed?
    On top of risk areas, such as extraction sites. The nozzles and detectors are installed in the extraction heater, discreetly. They are distributed in such a way that equipment can be moved around, maintaining the freedom of kitchen layout. In the case of linear food production machines, it is placed in the hood immediately above the fats and heat zone. The entire system is distributed along simple stainless steel tubing.

    Can I protect only one area or do I have to equip the entire kitchen?
    You can protect only one fryer for example, as our system is modular and grows as needed. However, in our projects, we always recommend the full coverage of the burning and extraction zones.

    If there is a fire, will my equipment be damaged by the extinguishing agent?
    TiboRex Absolute is a liquid extinguishing agent, in order to be safe and effective. Electrical components may be damaged, although when the system trips the electricity is cut off automatically. All other equipment is never affected and subsequent cleaning is quick and easy. Other types of extinguishing agents would not be as effective or safe.

    Does it take a long time to install a system?
    No. Depending on the size of the kitchen, but for example a 5×1 meter linear hotel, it takes about 3 hours to install. The system is easy to assemble and disassemble.

    Can the system fire accidentally?
    No. Our system is accurate and detects temperatures with precision. Depending on where the thermal sensors are placed, a specific temperature is chosen. Usually it is out of the reach of a flame momentarily caused by a cook to flambé for example, it needs temperatures previously chosen, in the chosen place.

    Can’t the nozzles clog with fats?
    No. Our kitchen nozzles are designed to stay clean and unobstructed. They are designed specifically for food areas, maintaining their appearance and cleanliness during their useful life.
