Types of Extinguishers:

Water
water extinguishers

Water extinguishers are suitable for Class A  type fires involving combustible materials such as wood, paper and textiles.  Water is a fast and efficient means of extinguishing these materials.  It works by having a rapid cooling effect, so that insufficient heat remains to sustain burning and continuous ignition ceases.

Manufactured in both stored pressure and gas cartridge versions, water extinguishers are available in two models:  9 and 6 Litre.

Carbon Dioxide
carbon dioxide extinguishers

Carbon dioxide extinguishers are suitable for fires involving flammable liquids and electrical hazards.  The non-corrosive and non-conductive qualities of CO2 make it an ideal choice for dealing with fires involving electrical equipment and machinery.

Manufactured only in a stored pressure version, carbon dioxide extinguishers are available in two models:  5 and 2 kilogram.

The carbon dioxide is a recovered industrial bi-product, thereby reducing the carbon dioxide levels contributing to the Greenhouse effect.

Foam Spray

Foam spray extinguishers, (AFFF - Aqueous Film Forming Foam), are ideal for multi-risk situations where both Class A combustible materials and Class B flammable liquid risks are likely to be found, or where Class B risks present a direct hazard.  Foam spray extinguishers are especially suitable for Class B fires involving flammable liquids, such as oils, spirits, greases, fats and certain plastics.

The blanketing effect of foam spray gives rapid flame knock down which smothers the flame and thus prevents re-ignition of flammable vapours by sealing the surface of the solution.

Foam spray extinguishers are manufactured in four stored pressure models: 9, 6, 2 and 1 litre, and two gas cartridge models: 9 and 6 litres.

Powder

Powder extinguishers are suitable for use on Class A, B and also Class C type fires involving flammable gases such as propane and butane.  Powder is also highly effective for electrical hazards.

This multi-purpose powder interferes with the combustion process and provides rapid-fire knock down.  Multi-purpose extinguishers are manufactured in fire stored pressure models:  9, 6, 4, 2 and 1 kilogram, and three gas cartridge models: 9, 6 and 4 kilogram.

Wet Chemical

Cooking oil fires, because of their high auto-ignition temperatures are difficult to extinguish. Conventional extinguishers are not effective for cooking oil fires, as they do not cool sufficiently or may even cause flash back, so putting the operator at risk.

The 6 litre wet chemical extinguisher has been developed to deal specifically with fires resulting from cooking oils and fats. It has the capability to fight fires in deep fat fryers of up to 75 litres capacity.

It contains a specially formulated wet chemical which, when applied to the burning liquid, cools and emulsifies the oil, extinguishing the flame, sealing the surface and preventing re-ignition.
