Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Fire Extinguishers are distinguished by a black coloured band around the top of the cylinder. Carbon dioxide is a non-conductive and non-corrosive gas used to reduce the amount of oxygen available to the fire. Carbon dioxide is extracted from the atmosphere and stored at high pressure in the liquid state within a fire extinguisher.
Carbon Dioxide Fire Extinguishers are suitable for the following types of fires:
Class B – Flammable liquids
Class E – Electrically energised equipment
