Fire Extinguisher

A fire extinguisher is an appliance that can direct a fire extinguishing agent on the seat of a fire. The projection of the agent out of the apparatus is obtained by the effect of an internal pressure that may be due either to the pre-compression of the extinguishing agent or the release of a pressurizing gas at the time of implementation. An extinguisher is essentially characterized by the extinguishing agent it contains. A distinction can be made between:
- Water-based fire extinguishers (sprayed, with or without additives, and in foam form)
- BC or ABC powder extinguishers,
- Carbon dioxide extinguishers (CO2).
