    Yeah, you got me there. Just be careful delving into areas you are unfamiliar; there are many code issues with kitchens.

    of the street or public way.

    and loading docks, except as otherwise specified in this code.

    And no one mentioned that the MUA needs to be tied into the supression system, so that if the system activates the MUA shuts down. If not you add air to the fire.
    If you really know how it works, you have an execellent chance of fixin' er up!

    Tomorrow is promised to no one...

    Who sells these sweet hoods? I can't find them at Greenheck or at Captiveaire. Sounds like a custom set-up.Have you ever set one of these up?

    Greenheck does offer them. The controls are mfg. by Melink.The system works well if there are low periods of activity on the cook line during slow times of the day.

    The Melink set-up is "sweet", will definently steer a new install in that direction. Thanks for the tip.
