Ansul R-102 Wet Chemical Fire Suppression Systems

Ansul provides many different types of automatic fire systems, but the one that they are known around the world for is the R-102 restaurant fire suppression system.  Ansul R-102 has been the industry standard for restaurant fire suppression systems for almost 40 years. 

The Ansul R-102 System. “State-of-the-art in restaurant fire protection”

Today’s high-temperature, high-efficiency cooking appliances, plus the use of hotter burning vegetable oils, poses a greater fire suppression challenge than in the past.  ANSUL R-102 Restaurant Fire Suppression Systems meet the challenge and are the top choice of foodservice kitchens worldwide.

Knock Down Kitchen Fires Fast

The R-102 system incorporates a flexible design with an extremely effective ANSULEX Low pH Liquid Agent that quickly knocks down flames and cools hot surfaces while generating a tough vapor securing blanket that helps prevent reflash. The R-102 system is designed to protect cooking equipment such as various types of fryers, griddles, range tops, broilers, char-broilers, and woks. It also detects and suppresses fire in ventilating equipment including hoods, ducts, plenums, and auxiliary grease extraction devices.

Two Options for Flexible Protection

The appliance-specific design is one of the two protection options available with the R-102 restaurant fire suppression system. The most efficient fire protection is accomplished when nozzles are selected and aimed at specific hazard areas on each appliance. This method typically provides the most economical use of a liquid agent, reducing the size or quantity of storage tanks and associated hardware.  Overlapping appliance protection is flexible and simple.  Nozzles are arranged in a straight line, providing overlapping agent discharge patterns where appliances can be protected, even if they are replaced or rearranged under the hood.
