The ABS Carbon Dioxide fire extinguisher is usually placed in clean rooms, server rooms and electrical rooms. As carbon dioxide fire extinguishers do not leave any residue after discharge, they are considered as clean. This makes them the perfect choice to use in rooms where expensive equipment are kept. Often, they are also used as training equipment to fight fires as no clean up is required after the practice session.
Rigorous testing ensure that the ABS Carbon Dioxide Fire Extinguisher is suitable to the most hostile environments including onboard vessels, coastal installations, oil rigs and more.
What type of fire can I use this fire extinguisher for?
Meticulously tested in laboratories, the Hercules fire extinguisher is capable of eliminating:
Class B fires which are flammable liquids such as paint, thinner, petrol, etc.
Class E fires which are electrical fires but do not include lithium battery fires.*
*The first step of eliminating a Class C or E fire is to turn off the source by shutting off the gas or electrical supply. If there is still a fire, the fire is likely to be a class A or B fire which will be much easier to put out as compared to a C or E fire.
How to use a fire extinguisher?
Before you use a fire extinguisher, always ensure you have an escape route. If you have to use a fire extinguisher, do so at a safe distance. When in doubt, always choose to run. Even professional fire fighters in full fire resistant suits have been trained to never put their own lives at risk.
Always remember PASS. You can also read the instruction label on the fire extinguisher.
