KITCHEN FIRE EXTINGUISHERS


Kitchen fire suppression systems



Today, kitchens involve the use of open flame, hot surfaces and flammable materials; also, grease is highly likely to accumulate in the various components, exhaust pipes and systems.

A fast, efficient fire extinguishing system is therefore necessary to suppress multiple fires at the onset, thus preventing them from spreading any further, with the potential loss of property and risk for human lives.

With its modern spraying system, which covers the whole area, BUCKEYE is the most reliable and modern among kitchen fire suppression systems.

MELISAM designs, supplies and installs potassium carbonate-based BUCKEYE systems, which have been UL-listed and are compliant with NFPA standards.


DESIGN

THE FIRST STEP FOR ANY EFFICIENT SYSTEM IS TO HAVE A PROPER DESIGN, I.E. TO CONSIDER EVERY PIECE OF EQUIPMENT THAT NEEDS PROTECTION (STOVES, OVENS, ELECTRIC FRYERS, IRONS, PIPES, ETC.) IN ORDER TO DEFINE THE AMOUNT OF EXTINGUISHING AGENT REQUIRED FOR EACH CASE, THE ADEQUATE SELECTION OF NOZZLE TYPES, NUMBER, AND LOCATION, PIPING LAYOUT AND DIAMETER, AND NUMBER OF FUSES FOR AUTOMATED DISCHARGE CONTROL.


MATERIALS

The cylinders containing the extinguishing agent have a capacity of 10 kg, 20 kg, 30 kg, and 40 kg. Flow amounts and capacity should be taken into account to make a proper selection.

The discharge unit is placed at the top of each cylinder and may be manually or automatically activated.

The unit is fitted with all the necessary plugs for gas valve shut-off, power cutout, alarms, activated system signal, etc. There are 5 different types of nozzles, properly identified and selected according to discharge flow and type of coverage.

The calibrated fuses are interconnected by means of a metal shielded cable. Buckeye does not require the use of protection ducts and pulleys to change direction.

All pipes are made of stainless steel.


INSTALLATION

Our expert staff, certified by Buckeye, installs each component, and also provides commissioning and equipment operation and maintenance training.

In its capacity as exclusive dealer in Argentina for these equipment items, MELISAM guarantees their design, installation, recharge, maintenance, and spares
