Description

5Kg Carbon Dioxide Fire Extinguisher

Carbon Dioxide extinguishers are filled with non-flammable carbon dioxide gas under extreme pressure. You can recognize a CO2 extinguisher by its hard horn and lack of pressure gauge. The pressure in the cylinder is so great that when you use one of these extinguishers, bits of dry ice may shoot out the horn.

A 5kg Carbon Dioxide (CO2) fire extinguisher is a specific type of fire safety equipment designed to extinguish fires involving Class B (flammable liquids) and Class E (electrical) fires

Product Features

  1. Extinguisher Type: The fire extinguisher uses carbon dioxide (CO2) gas to smother fires by displacing oxygen, effectively removing the fuel source and suppressing the flames.
  2. Weight: The extinguisher has a capacity of 5 kilograms, which refers to the weight of the CO2 gas and the extinguisher’s overall content.
  3. Application: This type of fire extinguisher is particularly effective for fires involving flammable liquids such as oils, solvents, and gases, as well as electrical equipment where water-based extinguishers cannot be used due to the risk of electrical conductivity.
  4. Safety for Electrical Fires: CO2 extinguishers are safe for use on electrical equipment because they do not leave a residue that could damage sensitive components or conductive surfaces.
  5. No Residue: When used, CO2 extinguishers do not leave behind any harmful or damaging residue, making them suitable for environments with sensitive equipment and materials.
  6. Operation: To operate the extinguisher, you typically pull the safety pin, aim the nozzle at the base of the fire, and press the lever to release the CO2 gas.
  7. Limited Reach: CO2 extinguishers have a relatively short reach due to the nature of the gas, so you need to be relatively close to the fire to use them effectively.
  8. Displacement of Oxygen: CO2 displaces oxygen, creating an atmosphere that does not support combustion. This method of fire suppression is effective for smothering fires.
  9. Temperature Effects: CO2 gas is very cold when released, and while it won’t damage most materials, there is a risk of frostbite if the gas comes in direct contact with skin.
  10. Indoor Use: CO2 extinguishers are typically used indoors. They might not be as effective outdoors due to the dispersal of gas in the open air.
  11. Visibility: The extinguisher might come with a pressure gauge to indicate its readiness for use and a horn or nozzle for directing the CO2 stream.
  12. Maintenance: Regular maintenance and inspections are important to ensure that the extinguisher is in proper working condition and ready for use in emergencies
