ABC or Multi-Purpose extinguishers utilize a specially fluidized and siliconized mono ammonium phosphate dry chemical. It chemically insulates Class A fires by melting at approximately 350 degrees F and coats surface to which it is applied. It smothers and breaks the chain reaction of Class B fires and will not conduct electricity back to the operator. Available in Wheeled and Stationary extinguishers.
Amerex Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Fire Extinguishers
The Amerex Carbon Dioxide (CO2) fire extinguishers will fight Class B (flammable liquids and gasses) and Class C (electrical) fires. Please see the chart for a more complete description of the types of fires and extinguishers.
Carbon Dioxide is discharged as a white cloud of “snow” which smothers a fire by eliminating oxygen. It is effective for Class B flammable liquids and is electrically non-conductive. Carbon Dioxide is a clean, non-contaminating, odorless gas. Also available in 50 / 100 lb. wheeled extinguishers and 100 lb. stationary. 5 YEAR WARRANTY.

The Amerex Water Mist extinguishers contain de-ionized water making them the best extinguishers for protection of hospital environments, valuable books and documents, telecommunication facilities and “clean room” manufacturing facilities. The Amerex Water Mist extinguishers are easy to use, maintain, and service. 5 Year Warranty.
