Dry Powder Fire Extinguisher Singapore
The fire extinguisher is manufactured with a red cylindrical body and has a second coloured band which depict the contents inside so that you can identify what type of fire extinguisher. Each type of extinguisher agent has a corresponding colour which is easy for identification purpose. The blue colour band is for dry powder fire extinguisher. Before starting to fight a fire it is important to check whether the extinguisher is fully charged and that the safety pin is not bent.
Dry powder fire extinguisher, also known as ABC powder fire extinguisher is ideal for ‘multi-risk environments’. It is suitable for fighting Class A, B and C fires (combustible materials, flammable liquids and flammable gases).
The ABC powder extinguishers have a very good capability of firefighting but the powder does not soak into the material to give a cooling effect on the fire, resulting in fire re-igniting if not extinguished properly. Therefore powder extinguisher is used in large quantity and care must be taken not to inhale the powder. In confined space it is not recommended to use the dry powder fire extinguisher as inhalation of it is harmful. The disadvantage of using powder extinguisher is that the powder causes damage to your property such as carpet, curtain, furniture, electronic items, etc. So got to strike a balance on the cost and effect as the cleaning process is tedious.
