How Often Should I Get My System Serviced?
According to fire code NFPA 96 Standard for Ventilation Control and Fire Protection of Commercial Cooking Operations, all ANSUL fire systems should be inspected and serviced by a trained professional at least every six months. Doing this helps preserve the performance and longevity of your system, and keep you safe. Additionally, you can help preserve the performance of your system between services by routinely cleaning grease build up, using kitchen-certified cleaners on all appliances, and regularly cleaning your exhaust hood filters and ducts.
They will begin by visually checking all components of the system, making sure nozzles and acccessory applicances are properly fitted. Once this is complete, the technician will test the functionality of micro-switches and shut-off valves, along with the pressure gauges and the reaction of the ANSUL system. Any damage or needed repairs will be noted at this time, and can be scheduled out. A pipe integrity test should also be completed to make sure the piping and nozzles are free of any obstructions. Make sure the technician leaves a proper dated service tag, that includes the future date of your next inspection.
