Can Your Kitchen Suppression System Take The Heat

Bison Fire's Guide to Can your suppression Take the Heat

When was the last time you had your kitchen fire suppression system inspected? Do you know if your system is ready to protect your food prep facility, commercial kitchen, or restaurant?

Many restaurant owners either don’t know the answers to these questions, or they don’t particularly care what goes into a fire suppression system inspection, and why it matters.

Luckily for most business owners, knowing the specifics isn’t that important (that’s why they rely on experts like our technicians at Bison Fire Protection!)

Our qualified technicians know that running a busy commercial kitchen can lead to a lot of risky situations which may lead to fires, which is why we take kitchen fire suppression system inspections very seriously.

What Goes Into a Kitchen Fire Suppression System Inspection?

Just like every business, most commercial kitchens have unique features or qualities that need to be taken into consideration when performing an inspection. If you’re not sure how your kitchen differentiates from others in your industry, give us a call.

Generally speaking, these are the steps which are typically involved with conducting a thorough kitchen fire suppression system inspection:

  • An inspection of the link line and the position of the detectors.
  • A visual inspection of the conduit and the location of the appliance, duct, and plenum nozzles.
  • Tests of the remote pull stations.
  • Ensuring that the electricity and gas shuts off when the system is activated.
  • Replacing fusible links.
  • Ensuring that the gauge on pressurized tanks is at the right level.
  • Performing an internal inspection of non-pressurized tanks to check for corrosion..
  • A thorough exam of all cylinders, including verifying and recording the hydro test date.
  • Examining the regulator to record and verify test dates.
  • Removing and cleaning all nozzles to remove potential clogs.
  • Testing all electrical interlocks.
  • Inspecting piping and copper tubing for tightness and wear and tear.
