Amerex Tri-Class (ABC) Dry Chemical Fire Extinguisher
Features & Applications:
The Amerex Tri-Class (ABC) Dry Chemical Fire Extinguisher is effective against many types of fires, including (Type A); flammable liquids, gases, solvents, paint, lacquers, oil/gas, tar, and synthetics (Type B); and electrical equipment fires, wiring, controls, motors, appliances, and data processing panels (Type C). The fire extinguisher uses a specially fluidized and siliconized mono ammonium phosphate dry chemical that serves to insulate Class A fires by melting at approximately 350°F. It also coats the surface it is applied to. Additionally, it smothers and breaks the chain reaction of Class B fire, and there is no danger of electricity being conducted back to the user.

Amerex Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Extinguishers
- Carbon Dioxide (CO2) extinguishers are used for class B and C fires. CO2 extinguishers contain carbon dioxide, a non-flammable gas, and are highly pressurized. The pressure is so great that it is not uncommon for bits of dry ice to shoot out the nozzle. They don't work very well on class A fires because they may not be able to displace enough oxygen to put the fire out, causing it to re-ignite.
CO2 extinguishers have an advantage over dry chemical extinguishers since they don't leave a harmful residue - a good choice for an electrical fire on a computer or other favorite electronic device such as a stereo or TV.
Amerex Water Fire Extinguishers
Amerex Water Fire Extinguishers Model 240 utilizes the cooling, soaking and penetrating effect of a 45-55 ft. stream of WATER. The 50 sec. discharge time makes it very effective for inexperienced operators for use on Class A fires. Protect from freezing by adding the Model 506 Loaded Stream/Anti-freeze charge. In areas with a high level chloride content water it may be corrosion protected by using the Model 507 charge
Amerex WET CHEMICAL fire extinguishers are the best restaurant kitchen portable fire extinguishers for grease fires you can purchase. Both have been 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. Available in two sizes – 6 liter or 21⁄2 gal. with attractive stainless steel cylinders and easy to use hose and spray application nozzle. The superior fire fighting capability of the Wet Chemical agent is placed exactly where you aim it with no chemical residue to clean up. The Models B260 and B262 are the ideal “KITCHEN USE” fire extinguishers. They supplement existing cooking equipment automatic system protection for an extra margin of safety.
FOR COMBUSTIBLE METAL FIRES
Amerex Class D fire extinguishers (model B570) contains a special blended Sodium Chloride based dry powder extinguishing agent. Heat from the fire causes it to cake and form a crust excluding air and dissipating heat from burning metal. Metal fires involving magnesium, sodium, potassium and sodium-potassium alloys can be successfully extinguished with this extinguisher. There is data showing that zirconium, uranium, titanium, and powdered aluminum fires can be controlled and extinguished with this unique extinguisher.
