There are 7 main Fire Extinguisher types – Carbon Dioxide, Foam, Powder, Specialist Powder, Water, Wet Chemical and Lithium battery.

You must have the correct Fire Extinguishers for your premises, or risk not meeting current regulations. Fire extinguishers are available in different types with each one having specific classes of fire on which they are suitable for.  Fire extinguishers meeting BS EN3 should have a red body (RAL 3000) and an agent specific colour band covering between 5-10% of the surface, relating to the extinguisher’s contents.

Carbon Dioxide

A carbon dioxide fire extinguisher is suitable for Class B and electrical fires; it works by displacing the oxygen in the air, thereby suffocating the fire and preventing it from spreading.  CO2 fire extinguishers can also be used on flammable liquids such as petrol and solvents.

Carbon Dioxide (Co2)

Carbon Dioxide (Co2) Fire Extinguisher

Carbon Dioxide is ideal for fires involving electrical equipment; it will also extinguish flammable liquids such as paraffin, petrol and oil.
These fire extinguishers are fully re-chargeable, serviceable and supplied with a wallmounting bracket and Identification Sign.

Suitable for use on class A solid combustible fires and class B flammable liquid fires. Foam Spray Fire Extinguishers smother burning materials and help prevent re-ignition, by creating a blanket effect.  Please note, unless they are described specifically as Class F Fire Extinguishers, they should not be used on fires involving cooking oil.

Foam Spray

Foam is an effective smothering agent, used mainly for liquid fires.  It acts by flowing over the liquid fuel or oil surface, isolating the fire from the air; also helps prevent re-ignition.

Dry Powder

Dry Powder Fire Extinguishers (ABC) are suitable for fighting class A,B and C fires. ABC powder extinguishers have a very good fire fighting capacity, but the powder does not soak into materials and does not have a cooling effect on the fire.

Dry Powder

Dry Powder Fire Extinguisher

Often termed the ‘Multi-Purpose’ Fire Extinguisher, it can be used on solids such as paper, wood, plastic, and flammable liquids such as paraffin, petrol, oil, and also flammable gases, such as propane, butane, methane etc.

Water Fire Extinguishers are harmless to the environment and supplied with a Wallmounting Bracket and Identification Sign.

Wet Chemical

Wet Chemical is
a specialist fire extinguisher for use on cooking oil fires (class F) and also has a capability against solid fires (class A).

Wet Chemical Fire Extinguisher

Wet Chemical

These specialist wet chemical fire extinguishers are for Class F fires, involving cooking oils and fats, such as lard, olive oil, sunflower oil, maize oil and butter. They are extremely effective; the wet chemical rapidly knocks the flames out, cools the burning oil and chemically reacts to form a crust like lid, sealing the surface and preventing re-ignition.

  • Tested on 75 litres of cooking oils and kitemarked
  • User friendly, 6 litre size
  • Cylinder, lance and nozzle constructed from high quality, stainless steel
  • Unique hose swivel joint for easy directional control
  • Simple to use with controllable discharge
  • Also suitable for use on freely burning materials (Class ‘A’)
  • Fire rating – 13A 75F

Independent fire tests have established it is capable of extinguishing a fire in a 75 litre capacity deep fat fryer. They are easy to use, producing a gentle but highly effective spray. The gentle application helps prevent hot oil splashing onto the user. As an added benefit, they are also suitable for freely burning materials (Class A), such as wood paper and fabrics and are supplied with a wallmounting bracket.

wet chemical fire extinguisher

Wet chemical  is the only type of extinguisher which should be used on kitchen fires involving cooking fats and oils; they work by instigating a chemical reaction with the fats and oils. This reaction reduces the temperature and eliminates the heat causing the fire to die down and they have a special lance which allows application from a distance. If you require training in the use of this type of fire extinguisher, we can help.

Lith-Ex Fire Extinguisher

Fire Extinguishers for Lithium Batteries

Fire Queen Limited can supply fire extinguishers for tackling Lithium-Ion battery fires. These high performance Lith-Ex fire extinguishers contain AVD (Aqueous Vermiculite Dispersion) compound – a revolutionary fire extinguishing agent – and are designed to target high risk fires of a limited size. They are suited to confined spaces such as homes, hotel rooms, vehicles, public transport, aviation, marine or leisure and dedicated processes where in all instances fires need to be suppressed in their infancy before developing into a fully established fire.

How it works:

When a lithium-ion cell goes into thermal runaway (increase in temperature) there are multiple possible sources of heat; for example:

  • Combustion – burning of electrolyte, packaging etc.
  • Ohmic – resistive heating caused by high current flow through short circuits
  • Thermodynamic – if the electrodes are no longer isolated, then the system will revert to its lowest energy state for that temperature, as long as the activation energy is met
  • Chemical – reaction of the electrode material with other components of the battery (electrolyte), thermal decomposition of the metal oxide electrode, especially cobalt oxide

In addition to this multitude of mechanisms, the design of the cell often prevents direct access of the extinguishing agent to the source of the fire. Thus, it is difficult to extinguish the fire, permanently cool all of the components to below their auto-ignition temperature and prevent re-ignition by delayed reaction processes.

If you require training for the use of this type of fire extinguisher, we can help as part of our comprehensive fire training program

Fire blankets are primarily used on hot oil fires e.g. frying pans or small deep fat fryers. They can also be used on a person whose clothing has caught fire. They work by smothering the fire, stopping access to the oxygen and extinguishing it.
