Down here in Rochester ansul is now required on new license applications though 1 or 2 older vendors are grandfathered in. And no-the standard is not open flame. Down here I had to install one over my propane flat top and electric fryer… Though not yet mandated everywhere in the state it is now the standard in larger cities and will be spreading, I’m sure….
Hardly any snow up here (Laconia) yet, just a dusting last night…
Right now, the health dept doesn’t require ansul on any of the trailers or trucks BUT they are starting to make noises about it and the fairgrounds are telling the vendors that next year the fairgrounds MIGHT require it. Just sort of wondering if any one had heard anything more specific……
Jim Jim Jim…ask your Health Dept. There’s is the only answer that matters. If you really tried I reckon you could start a grease fire with an electric. No?
You butt deep in snow yet?
have any appliances that have open flames? I’m thinking about using an electric fryolater
I asked my health department that very question regarding my trailer, they referred me to the Fire Inspector for obvious reasons as that was not my HD’s job. In MI I was told that a fryer would need an Ansul system, but a stand alone flat top griddle does not, just needs a powered hood to suck out the smoke and heat. Now if I had a fryer and a griddle, I need the ansul system, same goes for a char broiler, ansul required.
Call your local fire inspector, and if you plan on frying you may just save yourself some headaches down the line and just install the ansul system. They can change the rules on a whim, and what may go in your area of the state may not fly in another.

ask your Health Dept
Is an ansul system required in a concession truck or trailer if I don’t.
