Fire Extinguishers

Optimax Wet Chemical Extinguishers

Wet Chemical extinguisher

Stored Pressure

Specifically for use on fires in deep fat fryers. DO NOT USE on fires involving live electrical equipment.

  • Capable of extinguishing a cooking oil or fat fire of up to 75 litres in size.
  • 13A fire rating for all round safety and embraces the 35kV di-electrical test.
  • EN3 red, with official canary yellow colour coding.
  • User friendly 6 litre size - supplied factory filled.
  • Wet chemical process seals the surface of burning oil to prevent re-ignition.
  • Cylinder, lance and nozzle constructed from high quality stainless steel.
  • Unique hose swivel joint for ease of direction of discharge.

OPERATION:

Turn off the source of heat if safe to do so. Hold the lance at arm's length, well above the fire and with its nozzle at least 1 metre away from the fire. Holding the lance still, discharge so that the spraying wet chemical falls gently onto the surface of the fire. Even if the fire appears to go out quickly, discharge the entire contents of the extinguisher.

Optimax Powder Extinguishers

Powder Extinguishers

Stored Pressure

Suitable for fires involving flammable liquids or electrical apparatus.

  • High Grade brass head assembly ensures reliability and optimises efficiency.
  • Coated steel levers built to withstand the hardest knocks.
  • 15 bar working pressure for maximum fire fighting performance gives greater application reach ensuring user safety.
  • Long drawn high grade steel body shell for optimum strength.
  • The Monnex extinguisher contains a high performance powder suitable for high risk areas.
  • Polyester external coating adds extra protection to withstand extreme temperatures, dirty environments and UV degradation.
  • Precision built mechanical pressure gauge provides a very accurate indication of extinguisher's pressure status.
  • High quality application hose with plated brass ferrules.*
  • Robust protective plastic skirt.*

*Excludes 1kg and 2kg models.

OPERATION:

On fires involving either liquids in containers or spilled liquids, direct the jet or discharge horn towards the near edge of the fire. With a rapid sweeping motion drive the fire towards the far edge until all the flames are extinguished.

On fires involving flowing liquids, direct the jet or horn at the base of the flames and sweep upwards.

On fires in electrical equipment, switch off the current and then direct the jet or horn straight at the fire. Where the equipment is enclosed, direct the jet or horn into any opening with the object of penetrating the interior.

When the fire appears to be extinguished shut of the discharge and wait until the atmosphere clears. If any flame is then still visible, discharge again.

Optimax Foam Extinguishers

Powder Extinguishers

Stored Pressure

Suitable for most fires involving flammable liquids, apart from cooking oil fires.

  • High grade brass head assembly ensures reliability and optimises efficiency.
  • Coated steel levers built to withstand the hardest knocks.
  • 15 bar working pressure for maximum fire fighting performance gives greater application reach ensuring user safety.
  • Long drawn high grade steel body shell for optimum strength.
  • Polyester external coating adds extra protection to withstand extreme temperatures, dirty environments and UV degradation.
  • Polyethelene internal lining safeguards against corrosion.
  • Precision built mechanical pressure gauge provides a very accurate indication of extinguisher's pressure status.
  • High quality application hose with plated brass ferrules.*
  • Robust protective plastic skirt.*

*Excludes 2kg model.

OPERATION:

Where the liquid on fire is in a container, direct the jet at the inside edge of the container or at an adjoining vertical surface above the level of the burning liquid. This breaks the jet and allows the foam to build up and flow across the surface of the liquid to smother the fire. Where this is not possible stand well back, direct the jet with a gentle sweeping movement, allow the foam to drop down and lie on the surface of the liquid. Do not aim the jet directly into the liquid as this will drive the foam beneath the surface and render it ineffective; in addition, it may splash the fire onto the surroundings.

Optimax Foam Extinguishers

Powder Extinguishers

Cartridge Operated

Suitable for most fires involving flammable liquids, apart from cooking oil fires.

  • New plastic headcap incorporating a metal valve for increased strength.
  • Coated steel levers built to withstand the hardest knocks.
  • Long drawn high grade steel body shell for optimum strength.
  • Polyester external coating adds extra protection to withstand extreme temperatures, dirty environments and UV degradation.
  • Polyethelene internal lining safeguards against corrosion.
  • High quality application hose with plated brass ferrules.
  • Robust protective plastic skirt.
  • The branchpipe model is also suitable for alcohol risks.

OPERATION:

See foam extinguisher operation above.

Optimax CO² Extinguishers

Powder Extinguishers

Aluminium/Steel

Suitable for fires involving flammable liquids or electrical apparatus.

  • High grade brass head assembly ensures reliability and optimises efficiency.
  • Coated steel levers built to withstand the hardest knocks.
  • 56 bar working pressure at 20°C for maximum fire fighting performance.
  • Polyester external coating adds extra protection to withstand extreme temperatures, dirty environments and UV degradation.

N.B. Carbon dioxide extinguishers should NOT be used in confined spaces where there is a danger that the fumes may be inhaled. DO NOT HOLD THE HORN since it becomes extremely cold during use.

OPERATION:

On fires involving either liquids in containers or spilled liquids, direct the jet or discharge horn towards the near edge of the fire. With a rapid sweeping motion drive the fire towards the far edge until all the flames are extinguished.

On fires involving flowing liquids, direct the jet or horn at the base of the flames and sweep upwards.

On fires in electrical equipment, switch off the current and then direct the jet or horn straight at the fire. Where the equipment is enclosed, direct the jet or horn into any opening with the object of penetrating the interior.

When the fire appears to be extinguished, shut of the discharge and wait until the atmosphere clears. If any flame is then still visible, discharge again.
