By Koushrokee Subscribe to RSS | April 28th 2012 | Views:

In case of any mishap or in case of a fire caught up, the first thing we do is switch on a fire alarm and consequently we see the fire brigade coming and extinguishing the sudden fire. The fire brigade extinguishes the fire with the fire extinguishers which are of various types and contain certain vital propellants that helps in either controlling the fire or extinguishing it. Various propellants like carbon dioxide, nitrogen, water and air, etc… are used with pressure, so that the fire can be extinguished sooner. Fire extinguishers are to be handled with lot of safety, as they contain certain chemicals and are a great source of help to control the mishap.

One such type of fire extinguisher is CO2 fire extinguisher which contains carbon dioxide gas. These are not extensively used in case of normal fire catch in a place where people stay. Since it contains carbon dioxide so this type of fire extinguisher is used to extinguish or control the fire generated by transformers, electronic equipments, switch boards, etc... CO2 fire extinguisher is basically for extinguishing the fire in electrical mishaps. These are low weight fire extinguishers and are extremely necessary in industries and electrical companies.

Rather these extinguishers are even placed inside the industry, which can prove to be of aid during any kind of unfortunate mishap. These fire extinguishers are found in various size and shapes. Some are heavy while some are light. It depends on the requirement of the situation. CO2 fire extinguisher is also known as electrical extinguisher. When it is used, it just extinguishes the fire; it does not harm the other things like machines, food, etc... Actually what happens is, that, when this type of extinguisher is used it does not leave any residue of the carbon dioxide.

As mentioned earlier, they can be light weight as well as heavy weight. They are extremely important in the electrical industries as these industries and the electrical equipments used here are the most vulnerable to the fire, in that case immediate aid can be provided with the use of Carbon dioxide fire extinguishers. During any such mishap, one can either call the fire brigade or store this extinguisher in the industry and use to extinguish the fire. Although accidents happen unexpectedly and nobody expects them, but we all should be prepared for the worse and be ready with various ways to solve the problem.
