This Fire Extinguisher
Fire extinguishers with a Class B rating are
effective against flammable liquid fires. These
can be fires where cooking liquids, oil, gasoline,
kerosene, or paint have become ignited. Two
commonly used chemicals are effective in
fighting these types of fires. Monoammonium
phosphate effectively smothers the fire, while
sodium bicarbonate induces a chemical reaction
which extinguishes the fire.
Fire extinguishers with a Class A rating are
effective against fires involving paper, wood,
textiles, and plastics. The primary chemical used
to fight these fires is monoammonium
phosphate, because of its ability to smother fires
in these types of materials.
Fire extinguishers with a Class C rating are
suitable for fires in “live” electrical equipment.
Both monoammonium phosphate and sodium
bicarbonate are commonly used to fight this type
of fire because of their nonconductive properties.
