Case Study
– Kitchen Suppression System Installation

The Holiday Inn Parramatta, a hotel in Western Sydney recently had a fresh new makeover

As part of the hotel upgrade involved its kitchen and dining facilities where Torvac Solutions was asked to make a Kitchen Suppression System Installation.

As accredited handlers and installers of ANSUL Piranha products we had no hesitation in suggesting the industry’s leading brand to the Holiday Inn. Unlike most other systems ANSUL uses a non pressurised agent tank which means the system can be refilled on site after a discharge eliminating costly down time Ansul Piranha fire suppression systems uses a combination of PRX wet chemical agent and water for fast flame knockdown and superior cooling ability. In UL300 testing the Piranha system cooled hot grease 15 times faster than a single agent system and used 60% less chemical agent.
