Wet Chemical Extinguishers Sizes Available: 3,6 litre
Wet chemical extinguishers are designed for use on Class F fires involving cooking oils and fats, such as lard, olive oil, sunflower oil, maize oil and butter. It is extremely effective as the wet chemical rapidly knocks the flames out, cools the burning oil and chemically reacts to form a soap-like solution, sealing the surface and preventing re-ignition
Class D Powders ( Metals )Class D fires are caused by burning metals that combust easily on contact with air, such as magnesium and lithium. Such specialised fires require a specialised metal powder fire extinguisher to deal with them, and will be required in scientific labs or where manufacturing processes involve the risk of metal fires. For example, aluminium dust or swarf can catch fire, so any process involving cutting, drilling or milling aluminium holds potential risk.
