ABC Fire Extinguishers
ABC fire extinguishers use a specially fluidized monoammonium phosphate dry chemical to knock back most common fires that occur in homes and offices.
How ABC Fire Extinguishers Put Out Fires
Class A –The chemical in ABC fire extinguishers melts at about 350F, blanketing Class A fires (normal combustibles like wood and paper) and smothering them. This makes them highly effective against ordinary fires caused by burning wood, paper, plastic, etc.
Class B – ABC fire extinguishers put out Class B fires (flammable liquids) by breaking up the chain reaction involved in the fire. With an ABC fire extinguisher, there is very little risk of spreading the fire around – this makes them very safe to use.
Class C – ABC fire extinguishers are electrically non-conductive, making them safe for Class C fires (electrical).
