Water Type Fire Extinguisher contains water at very high pressure. It is one of the cost-effective ways of extinguishing a fire. Water fire extinguishers are used for extinguishing class A fires. Most of the premises where Class A fire is expected to have a water fire extinguisher to extinguish the fire. A water fire extinguisher sprays a jet of water at very high pressure on the burning substance. Water extinguishers are for Class A fires only; they should not be used on Class B or C fires.
Water Type Fire Extinguishers have a red label and a class A rating. They are suitable for fighting fires involving solid combustibles such as wood, paper, and textiles. The water cools the fire and extinguishes it. It penetrates into burning fabrics and can extinguish pockets of fire even deep in the core of the fire.
Water fire extinguishers do not contain any harmful chemicals and can safely be used near food, in areas where there are children present, and near vulnerable adults.
Refilling of water Fire Extinguishers is cheap and uncomplicated. The fire fighting capacity of water is of course limited so large water fire extinguishers are required to fight even small fires.
A few models are safe on electrical equipment if di-electrically tested. Otherwise, care must be taken near electrical equipment.
If Water Fire Extinguishers are to be used near electrical equipment, we would recommend choosing water extinguishers with additives that stop the current flowing through the extinguisher spray and the resulting puddles.
