This product may be covered by one or more of the following patent number(s): (United States) 8378834, or other U.S. and foreign patents pending.
Electronic Fire Detection
- Firestat - An electronic, solid state firestat reliably detects fire in the system. If TANK detects a temperature above 360°F or a rapid rise in temperature, the firestat contacts will close, energizing the fire system.
- Electric System with Battery Backup - In the event of a power outage, TANK uses a battery backup to disrupt all appliances through electric gas valves and shunt trip breakers. TANK's battery backup also powers fire monitoring, detection, and suppression.
- Microprocessor Based Control - Instant notification of problems with the system
- TANK Control Board - TANK's control board provides all of the necessary monitoring, timing, and supervision functions required for reliable operation. If a fault is detected, an alarm will periodically sound and the "Fire System Activated" light will flash a fault code. The unit's display screen will show the specific fault detected.
- Independent Supervised Loops - The supervised loops incorporate both redundancy and fault detection. The firestat and manual activation device are connected to the loops.
- 24/7 Monitoring - System pressure is monitored at all times to ensure suppression tanks are full of agent and ready to discharge.
Wet Chemical Suppression
- Overlapping Protection - Overlapping nozzles installed no greater than 24 inches apart and 40–45 inches above the cooking surface ensure an even and overlapping spray throughout the hazard zone.
- Simplified Nozzle Design - Each nozzle has a metal foil cap to keep the nozzle tip free of grease build up, allowing for quick discharge and reliable fire protection.
