TYPES OF AGENT
DRY B:C extinguishers contain a siliconized sodium bicarbonate based dry chemical with free flowing and non-caking additives. Economical Class B & C protection with lower initial cost and recharging. This chemical smothers fires in flammable liquids and pressurized gases and will not conduct electricity back to the operator.
DRY A:B:C utilizes a specially fluidized and siliconized mono ammonium phosphate dry chemical. It chemically insulates Class A fires by melting at approximately 350°F and coats surface to which it is applied. It smothers and breaks the chain reaction of Class B fires and will not conduct electricity back to the operator in Class C fires.
PURPLE K contains specially fluidized and siliconized potassium bicarbonate dry chemical which is particularly effective on Class B flammable liquids and pressurized gases. It is electrically non-conductive. Purple K has been the choice of oil, gas, chemical and utilities industries as the preferred fire fighting agent.
HALOTRON I ™ is made up of a a proprietary blend of HCFC-123 and two gases which is a clean agent that discharges as a rapidly evaporating liquid, which is non-conductive and non-corrosive leaving behind no residue. Ideal for data centers, laboratories, manufacturing plants, general office areas, computer rooms, telecommunication facilities, clean rooms, control rooms, warehouses, military electronics, vehicles including classic autos, boats, engine compartments, aircraft ramps, onboard aircraft and in facilities that service aircraft and any facility where dry chemical extinguishers could cause unacceptable damage or contamination. This is the accepted replacement for Halon and has one of the longest shelf life's of all extinguishers listed here!
HALON 1211 is a liquefied gas, pressurized with nitrogen, which discharges as a vapor and considered a clean agent recommended for protection of delicate, sensitive and expensive computers, electrical equipment, tapes and film. The agent is much more expensive, more difficult to find a recharging provider than any of the other agents listed above, but pound for pound, more effective than Halotron and therefore it tends to be lighter in weight ...although both are gaseous and both are also considered to be less effective than most dry solid powder extinguishers due to the lack of cover left behind to smother the surface of the fire source and the limited range and low wind environment the Halon and Halotron's can be used in.
The Halon units are about 10% lighter. As an example a 2.5 pound Halotron weight 6 pounds, the same in a Halon weighs 5.5 pounds. The 2.5 Halon 1211 units listed have an aircraft rated bracket included.
NOTE: The production of Halon has been banned in most countries since January 1, 1994 due to its ozone depleting substances. However, recycling of Halon 1211 allows it to remain in use, although parts availability is limited to a few manufacturers and can be an issue. Halon 1211 is still widely used in the United States, despite its high cost, with the US Military being the biggest user, but Europe and Australia have banned its use for all but "critical applications" such as aviation, military, and police use. The manufacture of UL Listed halon 1211 extinguishers was supposed to cease on October, 2009. The future listing is still in discussion. Halotron I is the replacement extinguishing agent. It takes a larger volume to get the same ratings as 1211 has.
