Wet Chemical Fire Extinguishers

Wet Chemical Fire Extinguishers

Wet Chemical fire extinguishers are ideal for environments that use hot fat and oils. Industrial and commercial kitchens, as well as school kitchens and factories that deal with hot cooking oils should be fully prepared for potential fires in the workplace.

Wet Chemical extinguishers are categorised as ‘Class F’ extinguishers and are designed to tackle fires involving deep fat fryers. They attack the fire in two ways:

  • The cooling spray of the wet chemicals cool the blaze area and dampens the flames, controlling the spread of the fire.
  • The solution reacts with the hot oil and forms a chemical barrier that prevents further spread of fire, allowing it to cool beneath the liquid.
