Efficient Fire Suppression and Prevention
Liquid potassium phosphate is used to extinguish grease and cooking oil fires. On contact with the oil, the liquid turns into foam, preventing oxygen from reaching the fire and cooling the area.
This agent is safe to use and does not affect kitchen stainless steel surfaces. The system distributes the extinguishing agent over all protected areas, while simultaneously interrupting the supply of gas or electricity to the area of the fire. The system can be operated manually or automatically.
