Truck/Large Vehicle Fire Extinguishers
Trucks and large vehicles are designed to carry a range of contents that can change on a daily basis. It is because of this variety and the size of the vehicle that it is important for the driver to be equipped with fire extinguishers that are capable of tackling a range of fire classifications.
To cover the multiple fire risks that the driver of a truck or large vehicle may come across, a powder fire extinguisher, typically 6kg in size is installed in the vehicle cab. ABC powder fire extinguishers, also known as multi-purpose extinguishers, are suitable for use on fires fuelled by solid combustibles, flammable liquids, burning gases and electrical equipment. This allows for the powder extinguisher to be used whether the source of a fire is the contents or the vehicle itself.
The newly developed dry water mist fire extinguishers have been specially designed to tackle multiple classes of fire without the mess after discharge. The extinguishing agent is de-mineralised water that forms a mist curtain when discharged. As the water is so fine and the extinguisher has passed the 35kV electrical conductivity test, the dry water mist can be used on class A, B, C, F and electrical equipment fires. The water evaporates quickly, leaving virtually no residue to clean up.
The 3ltr dry water mist fire extinguisher is suitable for tackling common fires including class A (solid materials), class B (flammable liquids) and class C (flammable gases). Due to its uniquely designed nozzle, the de-ionised water discharges as a fine curtain mist, producing billions of tiny water droplets. This method allows the extinguisher to be safely used on or near electrical equipment as well as class F cooking oil fires, as the droplets have no adverse reaction with burning liquid.
