Newer, more efficient cooking appliances, plus the use of non-saturated cooking oils, require a fire extinguishing agent which will not only smother a fire but provide a cooling effect.
The F-Class fire extinguishers meet the requirements of EN3 and PED for use on fires involving combustible vegetable or animal fats in commercial cooking equipment. The low pH fire extinguishing agent used in the extinguisher is a specially-formulated aqueous solution. It has been developed to provide rapid flame extinguishment and securement of hot fuels such as cooking shortenings.
Applications include kitchen cooking equipment typically found in restaurants, hospitals, nursing homes, hotels, schools, airports and other facilities. Appliances that benefit from F-Class protection include fryers; griddles; range tops; upright, natural charcoal, or chain-type broilers; electric, lava rock, mesquite or gas-radiant char-broilers; and woks.
The extinguisher is available with operating labels and supporting data sheets in various languages including Czech, English, French, German and Spanish.
