There are 5 types of fire extinguishers:


  • Water - Absorbs the heat & cools the burning material.

  • Dry Chemical - Smothers the fuel (preventing vapors from igniting) and interrupts the chemical chain reaction.

  • CO2 - Removes the oxygen from the fire.

  • Halotron - Interrupts the chemical chain reaction.

  • Wet Chemical - Smothers and seals the fuel (preventing vapors from igniting) and removes the heat by cooling.
