TYPES OF FIRE EXTINGUISHERS
SENTRY - the most common type of fire extinguisher. When economy and performance are equally important, select from the SENTRY line of stored pressure, hand portable fire extinguishers. Agents include dry chemical, carbon dioxide, and water.
RED LINE - cartridge-operated extinguishers are the premium firefighting units preferred by safety directors in high fire-risk industries. Agents include dry chemicals and powders.
K-GUARD - fire extinguishers contain ANSULEX liquid fire suppressant to quickly knock down the flames, form a vapor-securing blanket, and cool the grease and surrounding surfaces.
CLEAN GUARD - hand portable fire extinguishers contain DuPoint FE-36 where the agent must clean, electrically non-conductive, environmentally friendly, extremely low toxicity and exceptionally effective.
RED LINE WHEELED - extinguishers are designed to protect high fire-risk areas where the potential for large fires exists. Agents include dry chemicals, dry powders, carbon dioxide, and alcohol resistant AFFF. These units are typically used at airports, heavy industrial plants, refineries, pipelines, steel mills, paint spray booths, and manufacturing areas.
MULTIPURPOSE EXTINGUISHERS - Most portable extinguishers are rated for use with more than one classification of fire. For example, an extinguisher with a BC rating is suitable for use with fires involving flammable liquids and energized electrical equipment. An extinguisher with an ABC rating can be used for fires involving ordinary combustibles in addition to the B and C rated fires. An extinguisher that is rated for use with multiple hazards should include a symbol for each hazard type.
