Nobel refreshes fryer safety advice

Nobel's Stat-X suppression agent is said to have zero global warming potential.

Fire suppression system supplier Nobel Fire Systems has published a new Fryer Fire Protection brochure.

Featuring Nobel’s Stat-X product, the brochure contains vital information on this fire suppression system designed for fast food outlets, where industrial fryers can represent a real and obvious fire hazard.

Fires will potentially occur in the fryer’s internal compartments because of the build up of residual oil and grease – all of which acts a fuel source for any electrical and/or gas malfunction.

Now however, Nobel believes it has addressed this issue and, following a series of specific fire tests in aged fryers, its active fire suppression system now sits within the previously unreachable areas of the fryers’ internal workings.

UL approved, the Stat-X condensed aerosol system is said to be constantly ready for immediate activation. In the event of a fire occurring, the self contained system, which needs no external power supply, should immediately detect and activate the dedicated fire suppression system providing a localised First Response to any developing fire.

Stat-X is a self contained second generation condensed aerosol system that is claimed to require no pipework or nozzles.

When activated, the aerosol can remain in suspension for extended periods, designed to provide greater post fire security against re-ignition. The units are also claimed to be environmentally friendly with zero global warming potential.
