AMEREX FIRE EXINGUISHERS
Abc Dry Chem Fire Extinguisher
ABC or Multi-Purpose extinguishers utilize a specially fluidized and siliconized mono ammonium phosphate dry chemical. It chemically insulates Class A fires by melting at approximately 350°F and coats surface to which it is applied. It smothers and breaks the chain reaction of Class B fires and will not conduct electricity back to the operator.
Carbon Dioxide is discharged as a white cloud of “snow” which smothers a fire by eliminating oxygen. It is effective for Class B flammable liquids and is electrically non-conductive. Carbon Dioxide is a clean, non-contaminating, odorless gas.
Class D Extinguisher
The Amerex “soft flow” extension applicator is particularly suited for fighting Class D fires. It keeps the operator’s hands away from the extreme heat and prevents inhalation of toxic fumes caused by burning material. The easily controlled, even discharge provides a non-dispersing application of the agent. The applicator may be quickly detached to provide a straight stream of chemical where greater range, a narrow discharge pattern or a lobbing effect is required.
Foam Stored Pressure Extinguisher
Model 254 AFFF FOAM unique 6 liter size fills many requirements for a lighter, more compact Class A:B extinguisher. Easy and effective application with the spray nozzle. Apply to Class B liquid spills to prevent ignition. Ideal for emergency first response vehicles.
Model 252 FFFP FOAM adds Class B fire fighting capability to the Class A effectiveness of this extinguisher. The Alcohol Resistant fire fighting agent is effective on fires in a wide variety of Class B materials such as alcohols, polar solvents, hydrocarbons and combinations such as gasohol. Apply to a non-ignited Class B liquid spill and it will seal the surface minimizing the chance of serious fire.
Model 250 AFFF FOAM Class A:B extinguisher. Easy and effective application with air aspirated nozzle. Apply to Class B liquid spills to prevent ignition. Ideal for emergency first response vehicles.
Halon 1211 Extinguishers
HALON 1211 is a liquified gas, pressurized with nitrogen, which discharges as a vapor causing no cold or static shock and no impairment of the operator’s vision. This “CLEAN” agent quickly penetrates difficult to see and hard to reach areas and leaves no residue. It is recommended for protection of delicate, sensitive and expensive computers, electrical equipment, tapes and film, automotive and aircraft engines, laboratory chemicals and equipment.
Quality industrial grade hardware, “CLEAN” agent, light weight, good discharge range and excellent fire extinguishing ability.
Model 240 Water Extinguisher
Model 240 utilizes the cooling, soaking and penetrating effect of a 45-55 ft stream of water. The 55 sec. discharge time makes it very effective for inexperienced operators for use on Class A fires.
Purple K Stored Pressure Dry Chemical Extinguishers
PURPLE K extinguishers contain specially fluidized and siliconized potassium bicarbonate dry chemical which is particularly effective on Class B flammable liquids and pressurized gases. It is electrically non-conductive. Purple K has been the choice of oil, gas, chemical and utilities industries as the perfered fire fighting agent.
Water Mist Extinguisher
WATER MIST is the ultimate extinguisher for Class A fires and where a potential Class C (electrical) hazard exists. The fine spray from the unique misting nozzle provides safety from electrical shock, greatly enhances the cooling and soaking characteristics of the agent and reduces scattering of burning materials. The Amerex Water Mist extinguishers contain de-ionized water (sold separately) making them the best extinguishers for protection of hospital environments, valuable books and documents, telecommunication facilities and “clean room” manufacturing facilities. The Amerex WaterMist extinguishers are easy to use, maintain, and service.
Wet Chemical Stored Pressure Class “K” Kitchen Extinguishers
WET CHEMICAL extinguishers are the best restaurant kitchen appliance hand portable fire extinguishers you can purchase. Each model has been tested and approved for the Class K listing by UL specifically for restaurant kitchen hazards. They contain a special potassium acetate based agent. The recent trend to more efficient cooking appliances and use of vegetable based cooking oils dictates the use of a hand portable fire extinguisher with greater fire fighting capacity and cooling effect to combat these very hot and difficult fires. Available in two sizes – 6 liter or 2½ gal. – with attractive stainless steel cylinders and easy to use hose and spray application nozzle. The superior fire fighting capability of the Wet Chemical agent is placed exactly where you aim it with no chemical residue to clean up. The Models B260 and B262 are the ideal “KITCHEN USE” fire extinguishers. They supplement existing cooking equipment automatic system protection for an extra margin of safety.
