Carbon Dioxide (CO2) fire extinguisher (Class B , E)
CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) extinguishers are suitable for class risks involving flammable liquids and electrical fires. They smother the flames by preventing air reaching the fire. 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. Highly effective for use on electrical equipment without any risk to the operator.
