Why Choose Ifsind

Understanding CO2-type Fire Extinguishers

CO2 fire extinguishers remove heat from the fire triangle by displacing oxygen. Compressed carbon gas is stored in these fire extinguishers and at the time of fire this CO2 is discharged it looks like a white cloud of snow that removes the heat for fire as it suffocates the fire by displacing oxygen. It quenches the fire without even leaving buildup behind. For fires involving electrical equipment and flammable liquids, CO2 fire extinguishers are very well-fitted in these cases because these extinguishers do not conduct electricity and do the work without leaving any mess.
