Putting out a fire involves expelling an agent from a handheld device known as a fire extinguisher. It works upon the principle of removing one or more of the elements required to maintain a fire, referred to as the fire triangle. The triangle includes 3 elements, i.e. Fuel, heat and oxygen. The agent acts by eliminating the heat by cooling the fuel or creates a barrier between the fuel and the surrounding air thereby cutting the oxygen supply. Once the agent breaks this triangle, the fire goes out. To eliminate the possibility of rekindling, the agent produces a lasting effect on the fuel

 

Installing fire extinguishers in homes, workplaces, factories, etc. is a necessity these days and shouldn’t be taken as an option. Fire extinguishers are life-saving devices which help stop a fire from spreading. It is a necessary precaution everyone should take to save their property and their lives.

 

Before we can understand the types of fire extinguishers, we need to know about the different classes of fire:

 

Class A – a fire started with normal combustibles such as wood, paper, and cloth are classified under this category.

 

Class B – a fire started with flammable and combustible liquids and gases such as gasoline and paints are classified under this category.

 

Class C – a fire started by energized electrical equipment such as a short circuit in power cables are classified under this category.

 

Class D – a fire started by flammable metals such as Na, K and Li are classified under this category.

 

Class K – the fire started in the kitchen, with cooking ingredients like oil, fats etc. are classified under this category.

 

There are 8 types of fire extinguishers which are used for different classes of fire:

 

Water & Foam

 

The water component of this extinguisher removes the heat from the fire, while the foam component removes the oxygen.

 

This type of fire extinguisher works for Class A fires only.

 

Carbon Dioxide

 

Carbon dioxide supersedes the fire’s oxygen and, as the gas is contained under pressure it creates a cold discharge upon release, which expels the heat of the fire too.

 

This type of fire extinguisher works for Class B and C fires

 

Dry Chemical

 

This extinguisher eliminates the chemical reaction of a fire and is the most used of all fire extinguishers because of its usefulness across multiple classes.

 

This type of fire extinguisher works for Class A, B and C fires.

 

Wet Chemical

 

This extinguisher eliminates heat and creates a barrier between oxygen and fuel so a fire cannot be re-ignited. The chemical is expelled as a mist, cooling the fire’s heat and creating a blanket effect over the fuel.

 

This type of fire extinguisher works for Class K fires (particularly good for fires started by oils or fats)

 

Clean Agent

 

Also called Halogenated extinguishers, these include halon agents and new, less ozone depleting halocarbon agents, which extinguish a fire by disrupting its chemical reaction.

 

This type of fire extinguisher works for Class B and C fires.

 

Dry Powder

 

This works similarly to the dry chemical extinguisher as the powder separates the fuel from oxygen or removes the heat, but this extinguisher is only used to fight combustible metal fires.

 

This type of fire extinguisher works for Class D fires.

 

 Water Mist

 

This extinguisher takes away the heat of the fire only, thus breaking the fire triangle (heat, fuel, and oxygen).

 

This type of fire extinguisher works for Class A and C fires.

 

Cartridge Operated Dry Chemical

 

This extinguisher disrupts the chemical reaction of the fire, and creates a barrier between the oxygen and the fuel and, as the dry chemical extinguishers, works well on a variety of fire types.

 

This type of fire extinguisher works for Class A, B and C fires.
