Dry Powder type extinguishers remove the chemical reaction of fire. In this category, the multi-purpose Dry Powder extinguisher is the most used due to it is beneficial on Class A, Class B, and Class E fires. This is an excellent extinguisher because it creates a barrier between the oxygen and fuel elements on Class A fires.
CO2 fire extinguishers take away the oxygen from fire and remove the heat with a cold discharge. The Carbon Dioxide Fire Extinguisher is an excellent option on Class B and E fires. It is not useful on Class A fires.
Our foam fire extinguisher types are great for Class A and B fires. They are most suited to extinguishing liquid fires such as petrol or diesel. The foam extinguishes liquid flames by sealing the surface of the liquid, preventing flammable vapour reaching the air and starving the combustion of fuel. Foam Extinguishers can only fight Class A and Class B fires. If used on Class E fires, it will create a shock hazard.
These types of fire extinguisher eliminate a fire by allowing water to take away the heat component of fire. Water Extinguishers should only be used on Class A fires (Combustibles such as wood, paper, cloth, trash, and also plastics). Utilizing these fire extinguisher types on Class B (flammable liquid or gas or paint), the discharge could help spread the flammable liquid or gas. If used on a Class E fire (electrical equipment), it could create a shock hazard.
Wet Chemical Extinguishers extinguishes a fire by removing heat and preventing barriers between oxygen and fuel so a flame cannot be re-ignited.
Wet Chemicals are Class F (examples: cooking oils, greases, animal fat, vegetable fat) Extinguishers. This extinguisher is a must-have if you are in the commercial cooking industry. It is possible to use Wet Chemical extinguishers on Class A Fires as well.
