Wet Chemical Fire Extinguishers in Orlando, FL
It is absolutely imperative that you use the correct type of extinguisher in the face of a spontaneous fire. Wet chemical extinguishers are somewhat newer among extinguisher types and were specially formulated to deal with the types of fires most commonly dealt with in restaurants, commercial kitchens, and other areas that utilize and handle cooking oils and fats.
Using a potassium-based solution, these extinguishers enact a process that both rapidly cools the source of the fire and separates it from oxygen, stopping the fire immediately and preventing flares that can lead to another ignition of the flames.
Wet chemical extinguishers are effective at handling:
- Class A fires – Fires sparked by wood, paper, and similar simple materials are considered Class A fires. Wet chemical extinguishers are effective at dealing with these, as well as their primary fire category.
- Class K fires – Fires caused by cooking oils, greases, and other animal or vegetable-based fats. These fires are not handled well by standard Class B extinguishers, and thus wet extinguishers are necessary.
The fire protection specialists at United Fire Protection provide wet chemical extinguisher sales, installation, and service. If you are unsure what class of extinguisher you need, our experts can help you make the right call according to your business’ specific needs and industry!
