The KITCHEN KNIGHT II system offers
breakthrough technology in the industry’s
most flexible and effective suppression system.
The fire extinguishing agent is a potassium
carbonate-based water solution that knocks the
flame down, cuts off air to the burning grease
and cools the hazard area to help ensure
the fire stays out.
The KITCHEN KNIGHT II system has been
tested and approved in accordance with the UL
testing standard for kitchen cooking areas,
Standard UL-300. Pyro-Chem authorized
distributors have been extensively trained in
system design, installation and maintenance.
Pyro-Chem continues to perform extensive
research and development on KITCHEN
KNIGHT II system components. Continuous
improvements to virtually every aspect of the
system provide affordable, effective protection
for your cooking area.
part of your fire protection plan.
The modern commercial cooking
area serves up a smorgasbord of
potential fire hazards.
Cooking appliances today allow for the
potentially dangerous mixture of flammable oils
and greases with high efficiency heat sources,
creating an environment in which fire is always
a threat. Ventilating systems deposit grease
from exhausted vapors throughout the hood,
filters and ducts. Electrical power lines and gas
service lines add fuel to the hazard area, and
must be shut off in case of fire. Alarms and
other electrical devices must be activated. The
KITCHEN KNIGHTII system can protect all
these diverse hazard areas and perform all the
necessary auxiliary functions.

II systems
offera complete menu of cost
effective fire protection components.
Automatic detection and actuation controls
provides 24-hour protection.
Dedicated manual actuation system allows
immediate actuation at the first sign of fire
and provides backup to the automatic
detection system.
The most effective fire extinguishing agent
in the industry. The high pH formula
provides rapid flame knockdown and helps
prevent reignition.
Pressurized D.O.T. rated steel cylinders
ready for release in the event of a fire.
Pressure gauge on the agent cylinder allows
visual inspection of system status.
Afully assembled and 100% tested
mechanical control head provides reliable
operation of the input and output functions.
Flexible piping configurations allow for a
streamlined design that will not interfere
with kitchen workflow. The system can be
mounted in out-of-the-way areas to preserve
valuable kitchen space.
Critical elements of the system such as the
control head, cylinder valve assembly and
gas shut-off valve are fully assembled and
100% inspected by Pyro-Chem, meeting
ULestablished criteria.
Protective chrome nozzle covers help
protect against contamination and blockage
by grease or other cooking byproducts that
can inhibit the proper discharge of
extinguishing agent. The nozzle caps blow
free of the nozzle prior to discharge and will
not interfere with the discharge pattern.
available in a variety of sizes economically
suited to fit specific needs, and designed
with the flexibility to accommodate changes
to appliance layout or the expansion of a
cooking area.
