I simply could not work out how or what an Anusol system is.

everything like that in a large 'name' takeaway has a built in foam or powder extinguishing system built in. the main manufacturer is a company called Ansul. there's a handle on the front of all the fryers and the grills. although it makes a hell of a mess of the kitchen and typically closes the place down first to get it cleaned up then to get the system recharged and reset. funny what you remember from a job at university over a quarter of a century ago.

Isn't/wasn't that Halon :)


halon is only effective in a sealed space like a server room. plus there are issues employing them where people are routinely present (the couple of places I've worked where they've been installed, they had to be deactivated before any work could be done). plus the one in the mcdonalds where I worked was powder.

I bloody did. I bet you I've still got spots and blocked pores from twelve hour shifts on the fryers.

Argonite more likely to be used in Data Centre's now.
 
My old materials and metallurgy lecturer would love that. He was also our course tutor and on our first day told the group "And I don't want to see any of you socialising with those psychology and arty-farty pansies."
My electrical engineering tutor (Glaswegian) said to get a sociology degree you just have to sleep around and write about it.
