Using the wrong extinguishing agent on a Class D fire may cause more damage than the fire itself. Other than the extreme threat that all metal fires pose, one common characteristic is that all of them react violently, often exploding, when they come in contact with water.
So what is the solution to a raging metal fire?
The National Fire Prevention Association (NFPA), a panel of experts on fire safety and prevention, recommends Dry Powder extinguishing agents. These extinguishing agents have a blanket-effect on the fire and smother the flames by absorbing the heat.
Introduction: Metals such as Plutonium, Titanium can react & burn at temperatures in excess of 5000°C. Heavy Metal FE from CF contain a highly specialized extinguishing agent, SPM PYRO is designed specifically to combat metal Fires at higher temperatures and is effective against fires involving heavy metals.
Ceasefire SPM-PYRO melts and fuses at ~1200 Degrees Celcius, making it extremely effective against Alkali metal fires, as well as metal fires such as Plutonium, Titanium, Lead, Copper, Tungsten, Cobalt and Manganese
Chemically tested : The extinguishing agent has been chemically treated to make it easy to spray through a nozzle, and make it water-repellent
Container type : Deep drawn metal steel container
Discharge mechanism: A simple squeeze grip activation mechanism allows you to control the discharge and optimise use of the extinguishing agent.
Easy snap safety seal: A completely tamper proof safety seal that can be broken in seconds. (Does not apply to 50kg variant.)
5 year Warranty: A 5 year Warranty means Ceasefire is looking out for the health of your fire safety products.
