Wet Chemical Fire Extinguishers
Water or foam from extinguishers will vaporise from the heat in cooking fires, but the gentle application of a wet chemical solution via a mist type nozzle and extended lance creates a layer which starves the fire of oxygen. The entire contents of the unit should be deployed to help cool the solution and prevent reignition.
What is a Wet Chemical Fire Extinguisher used for?
Spraying a wet chemical mist onto the fire via a lance to suppress the flames, wet chemical fire extinguishers are crucial in fighting class A, B and F fires. These fire extinguishers are ideal for use on fat or oil fires in cooking environments as they avoid splashing and spreading the liquid.
Wet chemical extinguishers have a yellow panel and can be used as a class A fire extinguisher, class B fire extinguisher or a class F extinguisher.
Note. Not all wet chemical fire extinguishers will be suitable for B class fires. Please check the front label on the extinguisher, or consult your extinguisher provider.
