Kentucky Fried Chicken Norwich

Kentucky Fried Chicken chose the Hydramist 15ampu for their recently opened restaurant in Norwich. It is the latest in a number of new build restaurants that offer increased dining space and a large drive through facility.

The Hydramist 15AMPU is the first product of it's type in the world to be included in the LPCB Red Book and it was chosed over the wet chemical alternatives.

Description of Risk: The Hydramist 15ampu was the perfect choice to protect the restaurant from the risk of fire.

Case Study Description

Until now restaurant fryers have used dry powder of wet chemical fire suppression systems, however  these systems offer little cooling to the hot metal surfaces resulting in an increased risk of re-ignition. Addionally they leave a large amount of residues which must be cleaned up before cooking can recommence. This leaves the kitchen out of action for a very long time - potentially days.

The Hydramist 15AMPU uses tap water to generate mist that effectively smothers fire and prevents re-ignition. The 15AMPU system is fast and effective with the fire being extinguished in under 10 seconds and only a light mist of water to clean up after the fire means that the kitchen can get back to normal operation in minutes.

Description of Solution

The Hydramist 15AMPU uses a high pressure pump which is connected to the restaurants water system. This means the unit can run as long or as short as required. The wall mounted Hydramist pump also eliminates storage issues that have been associated with traditional fire suppression systems. The 15ampu was installed covering the deep fat fryers as well as protecting the kitchen canopy and plenum.
