Torvac Solutions are an authorised distributor and installer of ANSUL R-102 commercial kitchen fire suppression systems. ANSUL are the world leader in kitchen fire suppression systems and are the only system trusted by McDonald’s stores worldwide.
ANSUL products protect more food service kitchens from fire than any other brand. The R-102 Fire Suppression System incorporates a flexible design with an extremely effective ANSULEX Low pH Liquid Agent. ANSULEX quickly knocks down flames and cools hot surfaces, while generating a tough vapour securing blanket that helps prevent re-flash.
The R-102 system is designed to protect areas associated with ventilating equipment, including hoods, ducts, plenums, and filters. It also protects auxiliary grease extraction equipment and cooking equipment such as various types of fryers, griddles, range tops, broilers, char-broilers and woks. The system is ideally suited for commercial kitchens in fast food chains, retail food courts, diners, convenience stores, catering facilities, mobile food trucks, hotels and casinos, stadiums, schools, hospitals and more.
Two Options for Flexible Protection
The appliance-specific design is one of the two protection options available with the R-102 restaurant fire suppression system. The most efficient fire protection is accomplished when nozzles are selected and aimed at specific hazard areas on each appliance. This method typically provides the most economical use of liquid agent, reducing the size or quantity of storage tanks and associated hardware.
Overlapping appliance protection is flexible and simple. Nozzles are arranged in a straight line, providing overlapping agent discharge patterns where appliances can be protected, even if they are replaced or rearranged under the hood.

The system is ideally suitable for use in restaurants, hospitals, nursing homes, hotels, schools, airports, and other similar facilities. Use of the R-102 system is limited to indoor applications or locations that provide weatherproof protection within tested temperature limitations. The regulated release and tank assemblies must be mounted in an area where the air temperature will not fall below 32 °F (0 °C) or exceed 130 °F (54 °C). The system must be designed and installed within the guidelines of the UL/ULC Listed Design, Installation, Recharge, and Maintenance Manual.

“If the ANSUL system had not been in place, the fire would have spread and the damage would have been a lot more significant because this type of fire can be very difficult to deal with.”
