AMEREX Kitchen Protection Restaurant Fire Suppression System detection and release options
AMEREX Kitchen Protection Restaurant Fire Suppression System detection and release options include the AMEREX Mechanical Release Module (MRM), the AMEREX Pneumatic Release Module (PRM) and the AMEREX STRIKE Electronic Actuation and Control System with STRIKE Releasing Module (SRM). The AMEREX Mechanical Release Module (MRM) is the most common form of release for a Kitchen Protection System. This system utilizes a tensioned detection line, where fusible links melt at a certain temperature. The releasing of this tension actuates a nitrogen cylinder that in turn actuates up to 10 standard agent cylinders to suppress the fire. The AMEREX Pneumatic Release Module (PRM) has some very unique advantages that traditional mechanical releases cannot offer. A PRM detection tube can be run up to 300’, and is held in place by clips. The tube can then be routed through multiple hazards, making installation time often much lower. Heat from a fire melts a hole in the pressurized tubing, releasing the pressure in the tube and activating the fire system. The tube is extremely grease resistant, has no moving parts to get clogged with grease (no corner pulleys) and has a 3 year installed life. As with the MRM, the PRM also has microswitch outputs that can control mechanical or electrically operated gas valves. The AMEREX STRIKE Electronic Actuation and Control System with STRIKE Releasing Module (SRM) is the newest offering for control of AMEREX Kitchen Protection systems. The detection is accomplished through a linear heat detection wire that makes a connection at the setpoint temperature, activating the system. The panel then fires Linear Actuators, which either actuate a nitrogen cartridge(s) to discharge up to 10 KP cylinders at once, or can mount directly on top of AMEREX Kitchen Protection cylinders to open the valve and release the agent without a need for activation gas . The STRIKE control unit also monitors and supervises the health of the system to ensure all circuits are functioning properly, and relays back to a Fire Alarm control Panel.
AMEREX Kitchen Protection Pneumatic Release Module
The Pneumatic Release Module (PRM) is a mechanical releasing control unit that offers superior detection by using a continuous linear pneumatic detection system instead of intermittent fusible link detectors. When the PRM detection line is exposed to a fire condition, the tubing ruptures, relieving all pressure in the tubing and accumulator, thus firing the system using a nitrogen cylinder. Some benefits of using the AMEREX PRM in your Kitchen Protection System include no detection cable, no crimps, and no conduit or corner pulleys required in the detection line. The PRM control mechanism interfaces with manual pull station(s), actuation networks, mechanical gas valves, and also offers electrical contacts for shutdown functions. The AMEREX Kitchen Protection Pneumatic Release Module system can fire up to 10 agent cylinders and actuate up to two gas valves. The PRM comes complete with enclosure, accumulator, end of line fitting, and connector for up to two remote mechanical manual pull stations, two snap-action switches, and enclosure “knock-outs” for applicable connections.
