Dry chemical fire extinguishers are effective on fires that involve wood, paper, flammable liquid and even live electrical equipment.

Dry Chemical Fire Extinguisher Overview

How does a dry chemical fire extinguisher work?

The dry chemical fire extinguisher works by blanketing the fire with an inert solid material. The idea behind this is similar to covering a fire with sand or dirt to put it out. The dry chemical fire extinguisher will spray a very fine powder on to the fuel source to smother the fire.A major advantage of using a dry chemical fire extinguisher is that it provides effective fire fighting capabilities and after use the dry chemical powder can be cleaned up using a vacuum cleaner.A disadvantage of using a dry chemical fire extinguisher is that is when used it forms a thick cloud or powder that can restrict vision and may cause some irritation if breathed in. If the dry chemical powder comes in contact with a hot object or surface it can melt and form a layer that may be difficult to clean. After it has been used on a liquid fire it gives no protection against the flammable liquid reigniting.Dry chemical fire extinguishers are flexible and reliable in most situations. They can be used on most types of fire and are even safe to use on or near live electrical equipment. When using a dry chemical fire extinguisher you should remember to use the extinguishers in an upright position. Then pull out the pin and remember to test away from the fire first of all. Next you should aim the discharge nozzle at the base of the fire and squeeze the handle.The dry chemical extinguishers are filled with a dry, fine powder that’s expelled by compressed gas and covers the affected area with a blanket of powder. The range can be up to 8 m and obviously the weight will vary depending on the size. You should use a rapid sweeping motion to drive the flames to the far edge of the fire and continue until all the flames are out.If it’s windy, the dry powder might be blown away from the seat of the fire so remember that when you’re using the fire extinguisher. The fire might reignite if you don’t aim it properly. The powder itself is non-toxic so it can be used in confined areas. But it can cloud and that might cause you to become disorientated when you want to find a way out of the area. So you should wait until the powder has settled. The dry chemical powder works By a chemical reaction that interferes with the flame. As a result however the burning material may remain hot for some time after the fire has been extinguished. Operating instructions and the use of extinguishers may vary so it’s important to check the instructions on your extinguishers in your place of work.
