Wet Chemical Fire Suppression System
for Halton Marine Galley Hoods
According to the SOLAS regulations, ships must install a marine fire
extinguisher system to protect the galley, in particular the fryer
employed in the cookline. The K-5 galley fire suppression system has
together with Halton hoods
been designed to meet the requirements of ISO 15371.

The gas required to pressurise the storage cylinder is produced in a
tensioners, levels or spring
controlled manner from a solid proprellant gas generator. The cylinder
and gas generator remain at zero pressure until an electrical signal is
received from the system control panel. On actuation the cylinder is
pressurised to 10-12 bar.
The Wet Chemical Suppressant Liquid has been specially formulated
to su ppress fires in cooking oils and grease and prevent re-ignition.
