The ABS Dry Powder fire extinguisher is used to fight all common classes of fire.
Onboard a ship, weeks away from land workshops, this fire extinguisher does not require a workshop to refill or maintain. Upon discharge, the crew can simply refill the fire extinguisher with spare powder and replace the used cartridge with a new piece. A wide cylinder opening allows crew to easily check the state of the powder with the help of an adjustable spanner.
Rigorous testing ensure that the ABS Dry Powder 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?
Class A fires which are combustible materials such as wood, tires, furniture, plastics, etc.
Class B fires which are flammable liquids such as paint, thinner, petrol, etc.
Class C fires which are flammable gases such as LPG.*
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.
