    Fire extinguishers

    CLASS A: Class A fires involve common combustibles such as wood, paper, cloth, rubber, trash and plastics. They are common in typical commercial and home settings, but can occur anywhere these types of materials are found.

    CLASS B: Class B fires involve flammable liquids' gases, solvents, oil, gasoline, paint, lacquers, tars and other synthetic or oil-based products. Class B fires often spread rapidly and, unless properly secured, can reflash after the flames are extinguished.

    CLASS C: Class C fires involve energized electrical equipment, such as wiring, controls, motors, data processing panels or appliances. They can be caused by a spark, power surge or short circuit and typically occur in locations that are difficult to reach and see.

    CLASS D: Class D fires involve combustible metals such as magnesium and sodium. Combustible metal fires are unique industrial hazards which require special dry powder agents.

    CLASS K: Class K fires involve combustible cooking media such as oils and grease commonly found in commercial kitchens. The new cooking media formulations used form commercial food preparation require a special wet chemical extinguishing agent that is specially suited for extinguishing and suppressing these extremely hot fires that have the ability to re-flash.

HAND HELD STORED PRESSURE FIRE EXTINGUISHERS

ABC Dry Chemical ( also called Tri-Class ) Hand-held Stored Pressure Fire Extinguishers

ABC, Tri-class or Multi-Purpose extinguishers utilize a specially fluidized and siliconized mono ammonium phosphate dry chemical. It chemically insulates Class A fires by melting at approximately 350°F and coats surface to which it is applied. It smothers and breaks the chain reaction of Class B fires and will not conduct electricity back to the operator. Available in Wheeled and Stationary extinguishers. Go to ABC Fire Extinguishers

TYPICAL USES: Offices, warehouses, woodworking areas, farms, general public assembly areas, and homes. The ABC extinguisher is not recommended for use on sensitive electronic equipment or aircraft structure.

 

Regular Dry Chemical Stored Pressure Sodium Bicarbonate Extinguishers -

REGULAR extinguishers contain a siliconized sodium bicarbonate based dry chemical with free flowing and non-caking additives. Economical Class B & C protection with lower initial cost and recharging. This chemical smothers fires in flammable liquids and pressurized gases and will not conduct electricity back to the operator. Available in Wheeled and Stationary extinguishers. Go to Dry Chemical Fire Extinguishers

TYPICAL USES: Kitchens, garages, boats, vehicles, and extinguisher use training. The Standard extinguisher is not recommended for use on sensitive electronic equipment.

 

High Flow Fire Extinguishers, ABC, Regular, PK Dry Chemical

High Flow Portable Fire Extinguishers are now being produced by Amerex for applications where discharge rates exceeding one pound per second are required as specified in NFPA 10. These extinguishers utilize the same hardware and are manufactured to the same U.L. specifications as Amerex compliance rated products. Available in ABC, Regular, PK Dry Chemical applications.

 

Purple K Stored Pressure Dry Chemical Extinguishers

PURPLE K extinguishers contain specially fluidized and sili- conized potassium bicarbonate dry chemical which is particularly effective on Class B flammable liquids and pressurized gases.

Go to Purple K Fire Extinguishers

TYPICAL USES: Garages, service bays, boats, vehicles, fuel storage and transfer areas. The Purple K extinguisher is not recommended for use on sensitive electronic equipment.

 

Halon 1211 Extinguishers

HALON 1211 is a liquified gas, pressurized with nitrogen, which discharges as a vapor causing no cold or static shock and no impairment of the operator’s vision. This “CLEAN” agent quickly penetrates difficult to see and hard to reach areas and leaves no residue. It is recommended for protection of delicate, sensitive and expensive computers, electrical equipment, tapes and film, automotive and aircraft engines, laboratory chemicals and equipment. Quality industrial grade hardware, “CLEAN” agent, light weight, good discharge range and excellent fire extinguishing ability. Go to Halon 1211 Fire Extinguishers

TYPICAL USES: Computer rooms, telephone switch rooms, data storage areas, boats, and flight lines.

 

Halotron I "Clean Agent" Extinguishers

HALOTRON I is a “Clean Agent” HydroChloroFluoroCarbon (HCFC) discharged as a rapidly evaporating liquid which leaves no residue. It effectively extinguishes Class A and B fires by cooling and smothering and it will not conduct electricity back to the operator. Halotron is pressurized with Argon gas and is an EPA and FAA approved agent suitable for use on Class A, B and C fires. It has a low GWP of 0.04 – 0.24, low ODP of 0.014 (twelve times lower than the EPA maximum allowable ODP of 0.20) and a low Atmospheric Lifetime (31⁄2 to 11 years). ANODIZED ALUMINUM or CHROME PLATED BRASS VALVES WITH STAINLESS STEEL HANDLE/LEVER.  Go to Halotron Fire Extinguishers

TYPICAL USES: Halotron is intended for use in areas formerly protected by Halon 1211 hand portable extinguishers such as computer rooms, telecommunications facilities, clean rooms, data storage areas, offices (for protection of sensitive electronic equipment), boats and vehicles.

 

Carbon Dioxide Stored Pressure Extinguishers

Carbon Dioxide is discharged as a white cloud of “snow” which smothers a fire by eliminating oxygen. It is effective for Class B flammable liquids and is electrically non-conductive. Carbon Dioxide is a clean, non-contaminating, odorless gas.
Go to Carbon Dioxide Fire Extinguishers

TYPICAL USES: Refineries, shipboard, laboratories, construction sites, chemical plants, and manufacturing facilities.

 

Wet-Chem Stored Pressure Class "K" Kitchen Extinguishers

WET CHEMICAL extinguishers are the best restaurant kitchen
appliance hand portable fire extinguishers you can purchase. Both have been tested and approved for the new Class K listing by UL specifically for restaurant kitchen hazards. They contain a special potassium acetate based, low PH agent developed for use in pre-engineered restaurant kitchen systems. The recent trend to more efficient cooking appliances and use of unsaturated cooking oils dictates the use of a hand portable fire extinguisher with greater fire fighting capacity and cooling effect to combat these very hot and difficult fires. Available in two sizes – 6 liter or 21⁄2 gal. with attractive stainless steel cylinders and easy to use hose and spray application nozzle. The superior fire fighting capability of the Wet Chemical agent is placed exactly where you aim it with no chemical residue to clean up. The Models B260 and B262 are the ideal “KITCHEN USE” fire extinguishers. They supplement existing cooking equipment automatic system protection for an extra margin of safety.

Water & Foam Stored Pressure Extinguishers

Model 240 utilizes the cooling, soaking and penetrating effect of a 45-55 ft. stream of WATER. The 50 sec. discharge time makes it very effective for inexperienced operators for use on Class A fires. Protect from freezing by adding the Model 506 Loaded Stream/Anti-freeze charge. In areas with a high level chloride content water it may be corrosion protected by using the Model 507 charge.

Model 254 AFFF FOAM unique 6 liter size fills many requirements for a lighter, more compact Class A:B extinguisher. Easy and effective application with the patented spray nozzle. Apply to Class B liquid spills to prevent ignition. Ideal for emergency first response vehicles.

Model 252 FFFP FOAM adds Class B fire fighting capability to the Class A effectiveness of this extinguisher. The Alcohol Resistant fire fighting agent is effective on fires in a wide variety of Class B materials such as alcohols, polar solvents, hydrocarbons and combinations such as gasohol. Apply to a non-ignited Class B liquid spill and it will seal the surface minimizing the chance of serious fire.

Model 250 AFFF FOAM Class A:B extinguisher. Easy and effective application with air aspirated nozzle. Apply to Class B liquid spills to prevent ignition. Ideal for emergency first response vehicles.  Go to Water & Foam Fire Extinguishers

 

Water Mist Stored Pressure "C" Rated Water Extinguishers

WATER MIST is the ultimate extinguisher for Class A fires and where a potential Class C (electrical) hazard exists. The fine spray from the unique misting nozzle provides safety from electrical shock, greatly enhances the cooling and soaking characteristics of the agent and reduces scattering of burning materials. The Amerex Water Mist extinguishers contain de-ionized water making them the best extinguishers for protection of hospital environments, valuable books and documents, telecommunication facilities and “clean room” manufacturing facilities.
