9L Foam Fire Extinguisher
9L Foam fire 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
9L Foam Fire Extinguisher Is Suitable For:
|Class||Cause||Flammable material examples|
|A||Carbon-based materials||Wood, paper, cloth, rubber, plastics, textiles, grass and coal.|
|B||Flammable or combustible liquids||Petrol, kerosene, oil, tar, paint and wax.|
They are 94% water, with a foam additive and work on big fires by moistening and cooling the lighting item. The foam discharge also forms a barrier to prevent oxygen from re-igniting the flame, which is precisely what makes this extinguisher especially helpful on Class B liquid fires.
The AFFF fire extinguisher is more suitable to the Dry Powder types for use internally, as the subsequent clean-up required is far less and generally remains local to the fire, unlike the powder which can spread out somewhat a distance and reduce visibility.
