9.0L Foam ( AFFF ) fire extinguisher
9 Litre AFFF Foam fire extinguisher. This extinguisher contains a concentrate mixed with water and is best suited for the use against fires that involve flammable and combustible liquids. Both water and foam fire extinguishers are effective by reducing the temperature of the burning fuel, so it is below its ignition point. They can also be used for Class A fires which include wood, plastic, textiles, and paper.
Foam fire extinguishers should never be used on fires that involve live electrical equipment. Foam fire extinguishers work by forming a layer over the top of the burning substance which stops the fire by cutting off access to oxygen.
Certified and approved to the AS/NZS 1841.3 standard
