FFE014 – 9kg Purple K Fire Extinguisher
This 9kg Purple K fire extinguishers are used in military facilities, oil companies and vehicles, etc. The Purple K extinguishers use a dry chemical called potassium bicarbonate that is non-conductive and non-corrosive, and can be cleaned up by vacuuming, sweeping or flushing with water.
It is the most effective dry chemical in fighting class B (flammable liquid) fires, and can be used against some energized electrical equipment fires (Class C fires). It is at least 5 times more effective against Class B fires than carbon dioxide and has about twice the effectiveness of sodium bicarbonate based powders.
Purple-K should never be mixed with phosphate-based fire suppression agents.
This fire extinguisher forms part of the Fire Fighting Equipment range.
