Industrial kitchen fires pose a significant risk in food vans, snack bars, fast food restaurants and cafeteria kitchens. All it takes is a defective thermostat on the electric fryer or heating plate for the oil temperature to reach ignition point...and as everyone knows...or should know...throwing water on such a fire can lead to a catastrophe.
Fixed extinguishing modules based on a portable extinguisher connected to a small hose and ejector network and to an automatic activation device can be an effective means of fighting such fires.
But, there is no legislation imposing a minimum performance level for these extinguisher modules.
This is why ANPI certification of these modules remains the benchmark for guaranteeing extinguisher performance.
We perform tests on these modules so that they can be certified in accordance with the below specification.
