  1. Fire is detected by the Badger mechanical link or, electric Detect-A-Fire ® ,or the system is manually activated by a remote pull station.
  2. The UCH™ Control simultaneously actuates up to 20 pressurized agent storage containers, shuts down fuel and power sources to the appliances and activates the building fire alarm.
  3. Badger Karbaloy wet chemical agent, designed specifically for the challenges posed by oil and grease in a kitchen environment, is propelled through the system piping by the stored pressure container.
  4. The Badger Karbaloy agent discharges from strategically positioned nozzles protecting the hood, duct and appliances. Karbaloy agent quickly suppresses the flames and forms a protective layer that not only extinguishes the fire, but also prevents re-ignition.
