Powder and gas

Powder and gas extinguishers

Extinguishing powder is a mixture of some chemicals used to extinguish fires. In the past, fire extinguishing powder was used to fill a number of cans or containers in various forms with powder and put them in appropriate places, and when people started a fire, they opened the lids of the cans and sprinkled the powder on the fire. Over time, powder extinguishers were designed and built to spray powder on fire.

Types of extinguishing powders:

۱- Chemical powder used to extinguish non-metallic fires of class A, B and C.

۲- Dry powder that is used to extinguish fire of Class D metals.

Chemical powder

The chemical powder itself is divided into two groups:

It is a common chemical powder based on sodium bicarbonate, potassium bicarbonate, potassium urea bicarbonate and potassium chloride and is suitable for fire extinguishing classes B and C.
Multi-purpose chemical powder that is suitable for fire extinguishing classes B and C and is based on ammonium phosphate.

Dry powder

There are several types of dry powder that are suitable for extinguishing fires of flammable metals such as sodium, magnesium, aluminum, etc.:

Type S: It is a combination of sodium chloride, potassium chloride and barium chloride which, after being poured on the fire, forms a thick shell on the fire and extinguishes the fire.
Type C: A combination of dried mud, graphite, sodium chloride, and dried animal blood. There is another type of extinguisher based on sodium chloride plus thermoplastic
