For over 30 years, Amerex has been protecting facilities and businesses of all types from fire. Our innovative fire extinguisher and automatic fire suppression system designs have prevented damage and loss that would have been caused by the ravages of fire. Susquehanna Fire Equipment sells and services these suppression systems:
With the Amerex KP Restaurant Fire Suppression System you get appliance-specific coverage that typically offers lower initial cost. The KP system is ideal for uses where appliance location is fixed such as in fast food chains, casual dining, cruise ships and school cafeterias.
AUTOMATIC INDUSTRIAL DRY CHEMICAL SYSTEM:
The Amerex “IS” system uses our exclusive ABC (Model 555) dry chemical. ABC dry chemical suppresses more fire, by volume, than any other agent, has quick flame “knock-down” and can help to secure Class A fires against re-ignition. Since many hazards involve a variety of fuel sources, our ABC dry chemical, with protection against Class A (wood, paper, pulp), Class B (flammable liquids) and Class C (live electrical equipment) is the agent that is best suited for most Industrial hazards.
Amerex CPS systems provide fast, people safe fire protection. CPS systems can be safely used where people are present. Amerex CPS systems have a history of protecting everything from control rooms for rocket engine test stands to small phone closets. Extinguishing concentrations are reached in less than 10 seconds limiting damage from fire and smoke. When fires are stopped this quickly it means less damage, less downtime, less business interruption, and lower repair cost.

The ANSUL® R-102™ Liquid Agent System continues to be the #1 protector of today’s kitchen equipment. Choose from either of two design options…
Appliance-Specific Design. 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. When flexibility and simplicity are most important, nozzles are placed in a straight-line arrangement providing overlapping agent discharge patterns. This creates a virtual fire-free zone where appliances of various types and sizes are protected – even if they are replaced or rearranged under the hood.
ANSUL® PIRANHA® systems employ the best firefighting attributes of two extinguishing agents…
- The fast flame knockdown and securing power of wet chemical.
- The fast cool-down capability of water.
Tests using the “Double-Agent” Concept have shown dramatically increased firefighting performance…
- Twice the coverage of conventional single-agent systems
- Cools down cooking oils 15 times faster than wet chemical systems
- Flexible overlapping nozzle coverage for most appliance arrangements
- Smaller and fewer agent storage tanks required per system
Those responsible for managing and protecting high-value assets, processes, and facilities demand the quality fire suppression offered by the ANSUL® FM-200™ Clean Agent Fire Suppression System. FM-200 systems are internationally accepted as providing reliable, effective, affordable fire protection solutions for applications found in telecommunication sites, data centers and archives, museums, oil and gas facilities, power plants, and more.
The ANSUL FM-200 Clean Agent Fire Suppression System is approved by Factory Mutual (FM) and listed by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) for Class A, B and C fires. Safe for use in occupied areas at the design concentration, the system helps protect critical infrastructure and delivers effective asset protection.
The system uses FM-200 (HFC-227ea) fire extinguishant which has zero ozone depletion (ODP). This colorless, odorless agent vaporizes upon discharge and absorbs heat to rapidly suppress fire while leaving no residue to clean up. It is electrically nonconductive, will not short-out electronic equipment or thermally shock delicate circuitry resulting in less damage to critical equipment, facilitating a much shorter recovery time and reducing downtime.
Using water as a fire suppressant in areas where electronics operate and irreplaceable, high-value assets are stored, could be as devastating as fire itself. The SAPPHIRE Clean Agent System quickly suppresses fires and protects sensitive equipment without causing harm to people or the environment. The system is especially suited to suppress fires in areas where an electrically non-conductive medium is required, where electronic systems cannot be shut down in an emergency, where cleanup of other agents poses a problem, and in normally occupied areas that demand a non-toxic agent.
The SAPPHIRE system uses 3M Novec 1230 fire protection fluid for total flooding applications. The clear, colorless agent has zero ozone depletion potential, an atmospheric lifetime of just five days, and a global warming potential of 1.0. The SAPPHIRE system suppresses a fire before it can be fully engaged and once the fire is suppressed, Novec 1230 quickly evaporates without harming any valuable assets.
The fluid can be used in total flooding fire suppression applications such as:
- Data processing centers
- Tape storage vaults
- Occupied or unoccupied electronic areas with very sensitive or irreplaceable equipment
- Telecommunications including cellular sites and switching centers
- Military systems including combat vehicles and marine engine rooms
- Transportation including merchant marine vessels and mass transit vehicles
- Recreation including pleasure craft and race cars
ANSUL RED makes it simple.
Restaurant personnel can’t waste time second-guessing their fire protection. New ANSUL Restaurant Electric Detection (RED) Technology provides intelligent and reliable multi-zone fire protection that’s easy to manage. Designed by leading industry experts, new ANSUL RED Technology integrates with ANSUL R-102 or PIRANHA Suppression Systems for complete, scalable, UL compliant protection from detection to suppression.
The ANSUL® Lithium-Ion Risk Prevention System is designed to monitor lithium-ion batteries used in the energy storage market. Early warning detection of off-gases/toxic vapors indicates when there is a malfunction within the battery cell, allowing action to be taken to help prevent thermal runway from occurring. Thermal runaway can cause the failure of a single cell to propagate, creating a domino effect into adjacent cells, resulting in a catastrophic event.
The ANSUL® Lithium-Ion Risk Prevention System integrates with AUTOPULSE Detection and Control Panel and an INERGEN® or SAPPHIRE® Fire Suppression System to create a comprehensive detection, alarm and suppression solution. This integrated system will be capable of communicating with the Battery Management System (BMS) to shut down the failing batteries, can activate the Fire Suppression System to mitigate off-gas ignition, and activate local and remote alarms to inform personnel and emergency response teams.
Carbon dioxide suppresses fire without leaving behind any residues after discharge thus avoiding damage to sensitive equipment. With no agent clean up, there is less downtime after an incident. When properly designed, the carbon dioxide system will suppress fire in Class A, B, and C hazards by displacing the air containing oxygen that supports combustion. Typical hazards protected by carbon dioxide systems include printing presses, vaults, open pits, dip tanks, spray booths, ovens, engine rooms, coating machines, process equipment, hoods and ducts, flammable gas or liquid storage areas, and generators.
The High Pressure Carbon Dioxide System is especially effective for non-occupied hazards. Personnel occupying areas protected by carbon dioxide systems must be evacuated prior to system discharge. Therefore, discharge time delays and alarms are mandatory for occupied hazards. Whatever the application, from cylinder to nozzle, each system can be custom-designed for specific fire hazards. High pressure systems use individual storage cylinders—from 35 lb. (16 kg) to 120 lb. (54 kg) capacity each—that can be manifolded together for rapid simultaneous discharge. Cylinder valves can be opened automatically or manually and either locally or remotely using electric, pneumatic or mechanical valve actuators.
