Ansul R-102 Fire Suppression Systems

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 food service kitchens worldwide.

Knock Down Kitchen Fires Fast

The R-102 Fire Suppression System incorporates a flexible design with an extremely effective ANSULEX Low pH Liquid Agent. This agent quickly knocks down flames and cools hot surfaces, while generating a tough vapor securing blanket that helps prevent re-flash.

The R-102 system is designed to protect areas associated with ventilating equipment, including hoods, ducts, plenums, and filters. It also protects auxiliary grease extraction equipment and cooking equipment such as various types of fryers, griddles, range tops, broilers, char-broilers and woks.

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 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.

Extensive Features and Approvals

The R-102 system features an aesthetic stainless steel enclosure to complement the kitchen design, ease of recharge and post-fire cleanup, reliable gas cartridge operation and a five-year limited warranty.

A flexible agent distribution hose allows appliances to be moved for cleaning purposes without disconnecting the fire suppression system piping. The system is UL/ULC listed; CE marked; COA, LPCB, TFRI, MED, DNV, ABS and Lloyd’s Register approved and meets NFPA 96 and NFPA 17A requirements.
