Ventahood fire suppression systems

Hello
I have to wire a ventahood fire supression system control panel (control head) so that the exhaust fan comes on in case of fire and basically all other circuits under the hood are shut off. The ones being shut off would include a supply fan the lights under the hood and the receptacles under in approximate vicinity of the hood, All the cooking appliances under the hood are gas which will be shut off mechannically. If possible, could you please supply me with a electrical and a mechanical diagram for the electrical and gas shut off. Basically I need to know how to wire the microswitches and to hook up the gas shut off
Sincerely
thank you
Russell Robbins

The wiring has to go to the microswitches
you can add up to three micro switches,they are located in the control box
there colors should be bl,brown and red
look for nc or no(you can depress the switch by hand to see when you press itup it shuts power
it has to be repeated for the light,plugs and make-up air
to pass inspection when you press up on switches the have to shut off electric lights and make up air
you dont need a relay.
the basic system is a contactor line and load runs exhaust and make up air power in power out.
you need power just for the contactor to pull in.
you need to add a switch break hot on contactor power

The micro switches have a common hot/normally open&normally closed.The way we install the system is with contactors .Landing the line and load on the contactor lugs and powering the coils with the n/o or n/c side of the micro switch . exhaust turns on and make up air,all electrical and gas shuts off.

What is an ESFR sprinkler?


ESFR sprinkler is a fire sprinkler, more specifically an early suppression response sprinkler. They use fast-response fire sprinkler technology to provide fire suppression of specific high-challenge fire hazards, like in the piping system. Before these came about in the 90s, protection systems were used.

Do I have to take the timming belt off to do a head gasket on a 1999 chevy malibu v6 3.1L


The 3.1 engine does not have a belt,it is a chain motor.You do not need to remove timing chain to remove head.

I think my car blew its head gasket,but theirs no water in oil,if idling temperature stay normal,fans do come on when idling for long.I`ve changed spark plugs,plug wires,thermostat and heat sensor unit.As...


white smoke from the exhaust and overheating would almost certainly mean a blown head gasket.
the head gasket has gone between a cylinder and a cooling channel so exhaust gasses can get in to the cooling system resulting in the boiling and water from the cooling system is getting into the cylinder resulting in the white smoke (actually steam) from the exhaust.
the exhaust manifold is a separate issue that can be replaced when the head gasket is repaired.

I found a used hood with a dry chemical supression system, will it pass inspection?


You found it? ... running through the woods was it? :-)

The only place you can get an answer for this question is from your local building and/or fire inspector. Every community has its own rules concerning safety equipment, particularly in public accomodations. Before you turn a bolt, speak with the inspector. You could be fined for using it if it isn't legal in your community.

Furnace comes on Lo but no shift to High. Fan does not come on.


There will be a separate pressure switch for hi fire, make sure all hoses are connected and free of moisture and debris. You can temporally jump the switch once the inducer fan speeds up, not before. If the unit fires on high, you have a pressure switch issue. If the fan does not speed up, you may have a bad relay on the control board. If the unit is just being put into winter service, it may have a cob web restricting gas flow to the burner. You will need to check the air inlet as well as the exhaust pipe for restriction. Check on the wiring diagram to make sure that the DIP switches are in the proper position, you never know. Hope this helps.

Do we need an exhaust flue for a southbend half size gas oven?


Depending on your local code, you will need an exhaust hood due to the byproducts of the gas burning. Some locals allow for electric ovens to go without hood. Gas units generally require a hood system with proper fire suppression equipment. You may want to check with your local fire and building inspectors.
