Ansultech are the official distributors for ANSUL® vehicle fire suppression systems. Equipment loss, downtime, increased insurance rates and personal injury are often the results of fires involving vehicles. Extinguishing vehicle fires are exactly what the Ansul, Wormald & Kidde systems were designed for. For 24-hour automatic fire detection we add a Control Panel with Detection Circuitry and Automatic Actuation System. Vehicle fire suppression systems are commonly used in Africa by major mining houses and various other sectors.

Kitchen Fire Suppression Systems
Ansul developed the first restaurant fire suppression system over 30 years ago. Since then, constant research, testing, evaluation and refinements have led to today’s state-of-the-art systems. Both the R102 and Piranha restaurant systems utilise Ansulex low Ph liquid fire suppressant.
The Ansul Kitchen System is actuated manually by pressing an activation switch or
automatically by fusible links located above the cooking appliances.
The links melt during a fire, causing a cartridge to fire propelling gas into the Ansulex liquid agent tank. The distribution piping system carries the agent to nozzles located above the cooking appliances, in the flue above the filters, and in the duct above the plenum.
Electronic Fire Detection and Control Systems
Fire detection systems provide constant monitoring and, therefore, early warning, to minimise the losses and liabilities associated with fire. This prevents damage to property and products, loss of life, financial loss, consequential loss of profit, loss of productivity and insurance repercussions.
There are different types of electronic fire detection systems and accessories to suit every situation, ranging from small office installations to large scale warehousing and mining applications.
There are essentially two different types of fire detection systems: an addressable system is able to pinpoint the location of each and every detector and other devices, where a conventional system only differentiates between zones. A selection of application-specific detectors can be utilised on either system. Detectors include optical smoke detectors, heat detectors, linear detectors, beam detectors, gas detectors, aspiring air sample detectors and many more. Fire detection systems are widely used in offices, hotels, warehouses, factories and mines, to name a few.
Red Line and Sentry Fire Extinguishers
The Red Line range is a robust. High performance hand appliance used worldwide by high-risk industries such as Catex, Exxon and BP for protection of their inland and offshore production facilities. The unit is manufactured to be used in remote areas where field-recharge does not require special tools or equipment. Due to high quality materials and thorough engineering, we have immense confidence in the products to extent that we offer a limited 12-year warranty.
When economy and performance are equally important, stored pressure extinguishers are a viable option. Designed for light-medium use, the Sentry extinguishers are quality tested with the same care that Ansul puts into its rugged Red Line cartridge-operated
Wheeled/ Mobile Fire Extinguishers
Wheeled Fire extinguishers are specifically designed and built for the protection of hazardous areas where large fires could occur. They combine high mobility and single- person operation with increased flow rate, discharge times and range. They are available as both mobile and stationary units.
