Pee Dee Fire & Safety stocks and services a complete range of Amerex fire extinguishers, including Carbon Dioxide, Wet or Dry Chemical, and Water Mist Nonmetallic, as well as wheeled units and wall-mount brackets.
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. These extinguishers meet many hospital medical equipment requirements, and have been independently tested and approved for use in MRI facillities.
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. Metal valve construction, UL & U.S. Coast Guard listed.
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 making them the best extinguishers for protection of hospital environments, valuable books and documents, telecommunication facilities and "clean room" manufacturing facilities.
NFPA 10, Subsection 6.6.1 requires class K fire extinguishers be provided for hazards where there is a potential for fires involving combustible cooking media (vegetable or animal oils and fats). Wet chemical extinguishers are the best restaurant kitchen appliance hand portable fire extinguishers you can purchase. Tested and approved for the new Class K listing by UL specifically for restaurant kitchen hazards, they contain a special potassium acetate based, low PH agent developed for use in pre-engineered restaurant kitchen systems. The recent trend to more efficient cooking appliances and use of unsaturated 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.
These 110 ft³ nitrogen cylinder operated models feature a pressure regulator and two wheel options. The older, traditional design allows for adequate pressure to assure a smooth, complete discharge of the dry chemical with pressure reserve for blowing down the discharge hose. Choose either the 16" semi-pneumatic rubber tire or 36" X 21½" steel wheels according to the area to be protected. Easy to transport and operate by one person.
