Any home and business should be protected against fires. Fires are classified as A, B, C, D, E and F, depending on the source that produces them.

What is ABC Dry Powder?
This is a name given to the powder found in a fire extinguisher that is capable to extinguish various types of fire. ABC powder, or multi-purpose powder is found in products geared towards extinguishing fires that fall in the A, B and C categories. This powder is a special type of chemical, and unlike fire extinguishers that are based on CO2, it cannot put out fires caused by malfunctioning electrical devices, but it handles those caused by flammable solids, flammable liquids, and flammable gases. For your home or your business, this is the best product you can purchase; in case you have additional questions, do not hesitate to contact us and we will help you right away.
How Does a 3KG Dry Powder Fire Extinguisher Work?
Although such an extinguisher contains chemical ABC powder, as explained above, when you activate the mechanism designed to release the fire killing powder, this will transform into foam and it will cover the source of the flames right away. The small weight of this type of fire safety product makes it portable, so you will have no trouble manipulating it and carrying it around. Larger models, like a 6kg dry powder model, are heavier, and they come equipped with a hose, so you do not have to hold the entire cylinder in your arms while you are proceeding to extinguishing a fire.
The first rule to keep in mind is that you must remove the safety pin. After that, you will have to use the lever to release the pressure inside the cylinder; the pressure will propel the ABC powder outside, spraying over the source of the flames. For your protection, use a fire extinguisher for smaller fires that you can handle. Otherwise, do not hesitate to call the emergency services right away.
In case you need a fire extinguisher for your home, opt for a 1kg dry powder model. This is portable, easy to maintain, and, if it reaches its expiration date, you can purchase a new one, without having to make a very large investment for home protection. Depending on the fire class, you may need a different type of fire extinguisher, but those based on dry powder are the most common and the most useful.
