Serving Portland OR | Beaverton OR | Vancouver WA | Longview WA
While standard stored pressure fire extinguishers may suit most situations, industrial buildings with hazardous materials and lots of expensive machinery require a different approach to fighting fires. Cartridge operated extinguishers may provide more direct targeted power to put out or suppress more extreme flames. These canisters contain several different extinguishing agents and propellant types and must be suited specifically toward what is being stored or used in the commercial or industrial building.
Industrial Dry Chemical
This type of cartridge operated extinguishers is frequently used in industrial facilities and plants. Due to the existence of flammable chemicals and hazardous materials often found there, industrial dry chemical fire extinguishers are frequently placed on hand. Besides having different fire suppression agents inside, the cylinders themselves are coated with a special paint and sealant to keep them in top condition in these harsher environments.
Industrial dry chemical fire extinguishers are frequently used near welding apparatus, chemical storage, vehicle or machine part painting booths, and different industrial applications that focus on or are situated near the ocean.
