Amerex Restaurant Systems

Product Overview

AMEREX® offers two appliance protection schemes to meet commercial kitchen needs.

KP – Appliance Specific

With the AMEREX KP Appliance Specific Restaurant Fire Suppression System you get appliance-specific coverage that generally offers lower initial cost. The KP Appliance Specific System is the ideal choice in commercial kitchens where appliance location is fixed, such as in fast food chains, casual dining, cruise ships, and school cafeterias.

KP – Zone Defense

The AMEREX KP Zone Defense Restaurant Fire Suppression System adds greater flexibility by allowing kitchen appliances to be reconfigured without having to move system discharge nozzles. Because of the adaptability of the Zone Defense System, it is the most cost-effective choice over the life of the system. The KP-ZD System was designed with fine dining, culinary schools, military facilities, hotels and hospitals in mind.

The AMEREX Kitchen Protection (KP) Fire Suppression System has four options for Agent Cylinders, depending on system output needs:

All KP Agent Cylinders are manufactured using mild steel and listed with Underwriter’s Laboratory (UL). The cylinders are pressurized with dry nitrogen, or argon gas, to a pressure of 240 psi at 70 °F. The gas charge functions as the expellant gas which discharges the wet chemical agent through the distribution network. Each cylinder is designed with a machined stainless-steel discharge valve that is actuated pneumatically by the MRM or PRM.

AMEREX KP Agent Cylinder Assemblies are shipped factory filled with AMEREX Kitchen Wet Chemical Agent - a low pH, potassium acetate based solution that suppresses cooking grease fires through both saponification and cooling. KP agent is compatible with metals typically found in commercial kitchen environments (i.e., stainless steel, mild steel, galvanized metal, aluminum, brass and copper).
