Carbon dioxide gas is an efficient fire extinguishing agent which offers unique properties to the user. The colourless and odourless gas is heavier than air and works by smothering the flames and reducing the oxygen content of the air around the fire.
Carbon dioxide is the ideal agent for use on Class B (flammable liquids) and Class C (flammable gas) fires. It is non-conductive and therefore particularly effective against fires in electrical plant and equipment.
Carbon dioxide extinguishers are used throughout industries as a protection against complex industrial fires where dangerous chemicals and gases are involved. Carbon dioxide does not deteriorate with storage or freeze in the container.
After use carbon dioxide disperses without leaving any contamination or corrosive residue but if used in a confined area normal ventilation procedures should be followed.
