Fire class: F
These fire extinguishers are designed for use on cooking oils.
Class F – Wet chemical fire extinguishers, available in 2 litre, 3 litre and 6 litre sizes giving 5A/40F, 8A/75F and 13A/75F fire ratings respectively.
40F and 75F rating means the extinguishers have extinguished either a 40 litre or 75 litre test fire of cooking oils heated to their auto ignition temperature.
Wet Chemical 6 Litre
The chemicals react with the heat and the frying media creating a crust on the surface with porridge like consistency (known as the saponification), which extinguishes the fire in normally just a few seconds (5-10). The extinguishant also permeates through the frying media and makes any chance of re-ignition impossible. Can also be used on Class A fires.
All new fire extinguishers supplied by Fire Suppression Scotland are covered by a 2 year guarantee.
