Kitchen Facilities Local Application Extinguishing System “Brand Kitchen Safe” is used for extinguishment of solid substances, oils and fats inflammations at public catering facilities, cafés, restaurants, and industrial kitchens. Fire is extinguished along the horizontal on site with the fire-fighting composition Prevento®. Protected objects are surfaces of flat plates, frying machines, roasting pans, tilting fry pans, grills, and filters for range hoods and exhaust ducts.
Principle of Operation
If inflammation occurs and the temperature of the light detectors response over the protected area reaches, the mechanical and electrical detection system affects the BKS starter. In the meantime, the valve of the starting cylinder opens and propellant (nitrogen) directs the fire-fighting composition Prevento® on the protected surfaces via the distribution pipeline.
The system includes three key parts:
– fire-fighting module BKS;
– detection systems;
– Distribution pipeline and accessories.
Fire Fighting Modules BKS may contain 10 kg (BKS-1-10) or 20 kg (BKS-2-20) of fire-fighting substance Prevento®. If necessary, modules may be united to start-up simultaneously.
Local Fire Fighting Systems may be equipped by electrical start-up (starting by the fire-fighting controller, modules BKS-1-10-ЕМ and BKS-2-20-ЕМ) or mechanical start-up (starting by the wire system, modules BKS-1-10-МТ or BKS-2-20-МТ). All the modules have the manual starter. Modules are limited by number of accessories, length of the pipeline and number of rotations.

Mechanical detection system includes the steel rope, thermally sensitive locks (detectors), guide roller, and tension load. When the temperature of the detector response rises to 93˚С or 141˚С, the thermally sensitive lock is destroyed and tension load impacts the mechanic activator starting the system.
Electrical detection system includes the fire-fighting controller, fire heat detectors, and fire alarm notification appliances. TC heat line-type detectors manufactured by Safe Fire Detection Inc. are recommended to use as heat detectors.
Distribution Pipeline and Accessories
Fire-fighting substance Prevento® is directed via the stainless steel pipeline of outside diameter 16 mm. The pipeline is connected by means of fittings cutting rings.
Accessories are designed for uniform diffusion of Prevento® on the protected surfaces. Accessories are manufactured with the same flow passage (consumption) and are distinguished by spray angle. The accessory spray angle is suited to the area of the protected surface and distance to the accessory. All the accessories are equipped with protective dust caps which prevent pollution of passage openings.
Fire Fighting Substance Prevento®
The kitchen Fire Fighting Systems “Brand Kitchen Safe” are normally used with the innovative fire-fighting substance Prevento®. Developed by the German scientists, it is now used for extinguishment of oil and fats inflammation. Prevento® composition is a saline solution which cooling qualities are ten times higher than water. Prevento®, dealing with a fire and protected surface, limits the access of oxygen and cools the surface which prevents another inflammation. Apart from its high efficiency, Prevento® key advantage is its absolute safety for humans and facilities – protected surfaces are cleared by water when the system actuates.
Advantages of Brand Kitchen Safe System
1. Efficiency. One module BKS-10-1 may be used with us to 8 accessories, protected area – up to 8 m2 of plain sufaces, pipeline length is up to 20 m;
2. Safety. Fire-fighting composition Prevento® is non-toxic and decomposes into СО2 and Н2O when exposed to fire. To remove, wash off with water. Prevento® is effective for oil inflammation extinguishments and prevents other fires.
3. Esthetic appearance and usability. All the system components are made of polished stainless steel or plated material. Such components are both protected from the corrosion and chemically active detergents and shall decorate kitchen of any level.
4. Scope of delivery. Upon the customer’s request, the set may contain all necessary components and materials for installation and starting-up.
5. Easy installation and service. Fire Fighting Modules BKS are delivered as one set and require just the distribution pipeline and detection system to be plugged-on (start-up). Distribution pipeline is installed by means of fittings with cutting rings and does not require any special facilities or welding.
6. Price. Price of the system is much lower than the value of the facility manufactured abroad.
