R-102 Restaurant Fire Suppression System

Appliance-Specific Design

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 liquid agent reducing the size or quantity of storage tanks and associated hardware.

Overlapping Appliance Protection

When flexibility and simplicity are most important, nozzles are placed in a straight-line arrangement providing overlapping agent discharge patterns. This creates a virtual fire-free zone where appliances of various types and sizes are protected - even if they are replaced or rearranged under the hood.

PIRANHA Dual Agent Restaurant Fire Suppression System

The only agent-plus-water fire suppression hybrid on the market today, the PIRANHA Dual Agent Restaurant Fire Suppression System outperforms all conventional single-agent systems. The system employs the best firefighting attributes of two extinguishing agents: the fast flame knockdown and securing power of wet chemical and the fast cool-down capability of water. Tests using the "Double-Agent" concept have shown dramatically increased firefighting performance. Twice the coverage of conventional single-agent systems. Cools down cooking oils 15 times faster than wet chemical systems. Flexible overlapping nozzle coverage for most appliance arrangements. Smaller and fewer agent storage tanks required per system.

CLEAN AGENT SYSTEMS

Sinorix 227 Waterless Fire Extinguisher System Computer and other electronic systems today represent a considerable asset in every company. And because fires in electronic systems develop slowly, that makes them particularly dangerous.

Effective protection of people, buildings, business resources and data depends on how perfectly this chain functions. Siemens offers solutions at the leading edge of technical development for every phase, from detection to intervention.

Detectors from Siemens discover sources of fire immediately and in most cases pinpoint them before an open blaze can develop. At the same time the built-in intelligence in the system ensures that the dangers are evaluated correctly in order to avoid production losses due to false alarms.

Sinorix extinguishing systems make perfect enhancement for fast, foolproof fire detection. In the event of a fire an automatic extinguishing system intervenes instantly, with the result that the fire is extinguished rapidly or smothered in its very early stages.

TheSinorix engineered system nozzles are designed to provide rapid and thorough mixing of extinguishing agent with the air in the protected space and to provide coverage for a large area.
