Ansul Piranha Fire Suppression System

The first line of defense against fire in a commercial kitchen is the fire protection system installed in the exhaust hood. Accurex uses the Ansul PIRANHA fire suppression system when dual agent is specified and/or when there is a greater potential of fire and reflash such as with doughnut fryers, solid fuel BBQ's or smokers. The Ansul PIRANHA provides a one-two punch against fire by attacking it using the rapid flame knockdown with the PRX™ Liquid Fire Suppressant. Then, the superior cooling effects of water follow, cooling the cooking media below the reflash temperature within two minutes. The water also replenishes the foam blanket so that it can continue act as a suppressant.
