What is UL 300?
- UL 300 is a fire testing standard administered by Underwriters Laboratories (UL)
- UL 300 went into effect in November 1994
- Issued to address two major changes in restaurants:
- (1) the increased prevalence of high energy efficiency cooking appliances which were better able to retain heat; this increased the difficulty of extinguishment
- (2) the increased prevalence of low cholesterol vegetable shortening, which has more severe burning characteristics, than animal fat.
- UL 300 addressed these changes, in part, by increasing the amount of wet chemical protecting a fryer by five times (on average).
- Additionally, the test protocol for fryers was increased from a simulated pan to an actual commercial gas fryer, the one minute pre-burn was increased to a two-minute pre-burn, fuel remained on during the pre-burn, and a minimum auto-ignition temperature of 685 degrees Fahrenheit was used.
- A splash test is required for fryers, range tops, and woks. The splash tests prohibits splashes of droplets larger than 3/16″ during system discharge over these appliances.
- Pre-UL 300 systems, such as dry chemical systems, should be replaced when the AHJ, or insurance company, mandates replacement or when replacement parts and training are no longer provided by the manufacturer. No dry chemical systems have UL 300 listings.
