Wheeled Dry Chemical Fire Extinguishers by Amerex

50, 125/150 Lb. Stored Pressure
ABC, Regular, Purple K Dry Chemical

Regular dry chemical fire extinguishers contain a siliconized sodium bicarbonate based dry chemical with free flowing and non-caking additives. Economical Class B & C protection with lower initial cost and recharging. This chemical smothers fires in flammable liquids & pressurized gases and is electrically nonconductive.

Multipurpose dry chemical or ABC fire extinguishers contain a specially fluidized and siliconized mono ammonium phosphate chemical. It chemically insulates Class A fires by melting at approximately 350° F, coating the surface to which it is applied. It smothers & breaks the chain reaction of Class B fires and will not conduct electricity.

Purple K fire extinguishers contain specially fluidized & siliconized potassium bicarbonate dry chemical which is particularly effective on Class B flammable liquids and pressurized gases, and it is electrically nonconductive. Choice of the oil, gas, chemical and utilities industries as the preferred fire-fighting agent.

All extinguishers (except model A620T) are Coast Guard approved with the bracket(s) listed on the U.L. label.
