Falcon’s AB Dry Powder Fire Extinguishers are suitable for extinguishing Class A, B & C fires. The ABC Dry Powder Fire Extinguishers are widely used in commercial buildings, industrial plants, workshops, laboratories, schools, cars, and homes. The dry powder extinguishes the fire through a chemical reaction with the flame.
When it is applied to hot and smoldering surfaces, the particles swell to form a barrier to snuff out oxygen from the source fire, thus preventing re-ignition. Removing either one of the 3 factors; heat, oxygen, or fuel will prevent any re-ignition of fire. Besides being a poor conductor of electricity, the dry powder can provide the operator with a heat shield and has a fast knock-out effect.
Good Against: Class A, B, and C fires
