Exelgard Carbon Dioxide Extinguisher – 5kg 10B:E
The Exelgard Carbon Dioxide Fire Extinguishers 5kg use the non-conductive and non-corrosive CO2 gas to reduce the amount of oxygen available to the fire, effectively smothering the fire. The carbon dioxide is very cold as it comes out of the extinguisher, so it will cool whatever is fuelling the fire.
CO2 Fire extinguishers will be ineffective at extinguishing Class A fires. They may not be able to displace enough oxygen to successfully put the fire out. Class A materials may also re-ignite.
Carbon Dioxide (CO2) fire extinguishers are distinguished by a black band around the top of the cylinder.
CO2 is recommended by Australian Standards as “the preferred fire extinguisher for use in electronic environments”. CO2 doesn’t leave behind residue when used to extinguish a fire.
Exelgard makes a range of CO2 type fire extinguishers, from 2 kg to 5 kg (see other listings for other sizes).
