Wet Chemical Extinguisher

Items: 19 of 9, per page

The UK's love of fried food demanded a better form of fire safety for cooking fat fires than a normal extinguisher, and so Chubb Fire created their FryFighter - and ours is identical as it is made by Thomas Glover (Chubb Fire sister company) in the same factory. This extinguisher, was so unique that a new fire class, Class F, was devised to accommodate it.

Wet chemical extinguishers work by saponification (creating a soapy layer across the entire surface of the oil), smothering the flames and cooling the oil at the same time. One 6 litre wet chemical fire extinguisher is sufficient to contain a 75 litre fat fire burning at a blistering 340 degrees.

Wet chemical extinguishers can also be used on Class A fires, making them the choice for commercial kitchens.
