Stored Pressure Fire Extinguishers
Serving Portland OR | Beaverton OR | Vancouver WA | Longview WA
Two types of fire extinguisher control methods exist on the market today: stored pressure fire extinguishers and those that are cartridge operated. The majority of those in use in commercial, industrial, and residential properties are the stored pressure variety. In these, the propellant that pushes the firefighting substance toward the fire is stored in the same compartment as the substance itself.
Stored Pressure Fire Extinguisher Varieties
The type of stored pressure fire extinguishers kept in a particular room or building depends on the type of firefighting agent required to put out the major fuel source there. A room full of paper and cardboard boxes may use a very different type of extinguisher agent than a metalworking shop or a petroleum processing plant.
