Kentucky Fluid Air is a company that sells and promotes the products of pipe fitting companies, most notably Parker. Parker fittings help tubes and pipes, usually metal, connect together for the distribution of water or other fire protection chemicals onto cooking surfaces in commercial kitchens. They have other purposes, but this is the most common one.
Helium and gas tanks as they are applied in more commercial needs use Parker fittings as well. These gases have additional valves connected to their main release valve such that they have the capacity to be connected to more than one exit hose. The Parker fittings facilitate these multiple connections. Smaller hoses in place of tubing are then attached to the extensions of the tanks.
Instead of paying full price for these fittings, consumers can turn to fire protection supply companies for discounts on used and overstock parts. Building helium dispensary or a food truck fire elimination system on your own is costly enough without having to pay full price for the parts. Customized commercial kitchens should be included in this category.
In the event that you don’t want to use metal pipes, using double jacket fire hose or single jacket garden/ fire hose works pretty well, and sometimes even better because it’s a little more flexible than metal. Or you can use the hose to insulate your metal pipes to keep them from freezing because fire hoses act as good insulation.
