CO2 fire extinguishers contain pure carbon dioxide which is a clean extinguishant, leaving no residue. Suitable for class B flammable liquid fires (petrol, oil, solvents), and recommended for use on live electrical equipment.
The CO2 Extinguisher Cannisters contain carbon dioxide in liquid form, and when the extinguisher is let off the liquid is released into the air neutralising the oxygen that the fire is feeding on, disabling the fires ability to spread. This is an effective way to put out fires and also prevent fire from reoccurring because of the lack of oxygen and the ice cold temperature of the CO2 when released from the extinguisher.
The very popular CO2 extinguisher can be used on Class B & Electrical Fires, can be used on electrical equipment regardless of High or Low voltage and is highly effective against liquid flammables such as solvents, propane, butane & petrol.
