CARBON DIOXIDE, HOW DOES IT WORK?

Carbon dioxide is a non-conductive & non-corrosive gas and extinguishes by displacing oxygen, or taking away the oxygen element of the fire (care must be taken in confined spaces to ensure asphyxiation does not occur.). The carbon dioxide is also very cold as it comes out of the extinguisher, so it cools the fuel as well (Frost burn can occur if you do not avoid direct contact with the CO2.).

WHAT IS A CO2 EXTINGUISHER USED FOR?

CO2 extinguishers are mainly used for electrical fire risks (Class E fires). They also put out Class B fires. The extinguishing agent does not cause any damage to computer or electrical equipment, making it perfect for areas such as: Electrical Switch rooms, Server/Data rooms, Electrical machinery, Offices. CO2 extinguishers will also be frequently be found in laboratories and mechanical rooms.
