Dry Chemical Fire Extinguishers
Dry chemical extinguishers put out a fire by coating the fuel with a thin layer of dust, separating the fuel from the oxygen in the air. The powder also works to interrupt the chemical reaction of the fire, so these extinguishers are extremely effective at putting out fire.
Here are some pictures from our Kistler O'Brien warehouse of the process our technicians go through to make sure a dry chemical extinguisher is at the proper levels before it is tagged and sent out.
