Where to Use Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Extinguishers
Carbon Dioxide has been used in fire suppression systems, including fire extinguishers for more than 100 years. Carbon Dioxide (CO2) extinguishers are used for electrical fire risks. In high concentrations it swiftly dilutes oxygen, thus removing one of the three elements on the combustion triangle. Then, it diminishes the heat of the fire with a cold discharge. Carbon Dioxide fire extinguishers should be utilized on Class B and Class C fires.
