Wet Chemical Extinguishers.
Classes: AF: paper, wood, fabric & cooking oils & fats.
Wet Chemical (Aqualoy) extinguishers are effective for cooking area fires on burning fat or oil. A liquid extinguishing agent developed specifically for kitchen ranges, cooking oils and fat fires Wet Chemical rapidly converts burning fats or oils into combustion-resistant soap. It has a cooling effect on hot surfaces and suppresses the flames with steam. Wet Chemical interrupts the process of combustion by excluding air and lowering the temperature of the fat. The soap making action aids in “clean up” which can be accomplished by using water or steam.
