DRY CHEMICAL POWDER
A fire extinguisher could save your life in an emergency. Whether you work in an office building, commercial, warehouse environment, or industrial site, or even for your home, having the right type of fire extinguisher in the right location is essential, that’s why we provide DCP Fire Extinguishers in Pakistan to save your life.
DCP Fire Extinguisher is standing for Dry Chemicals Powder Fire Extinguisher. DCP Fire Extinguishers in Pakistan are the most widely used of all types of extinguishers.
DCP fire extinguisher is a dry chemical fire extinguisher and is very efficient firefighting equipment. It is a very versatile fire extinguisher that can extinguish different classes of fire (class A, B, E). A dry chemical fire extinguisher is most widely used for fire protection and very quickly knocks out the fire. It is also known as BE or ABE fire quencher. They are ideal to extinguish mixed fire risk environments. We can use it for the protection of fire that occurs by liquids, storage of liquid gases, and heating oils used for industry, garages, and workshops. We can recognize a dry chemical fire extinguisher by its white band around the cylinder.
DCP fire extinguisher is essential for every kind of building and because of this reason we cannot deny the importance of DCP fire extinguishers. This kind of fire extinguisher can save the assets of the company from fire damages. They can provide rescue services without the assistance of the fire brigades or emergency service providers.
This kind of fire extinguisher is highly effective and due to its versatile nature users can use it in various places like:
- Mechanical Rooms.
- Chemical Storage area.
- Commercial Kitchen.
- Fire Rooms.
- Computer rooms.
SPECIFICATIONS OF DCP FIRE EXTINGUISHER
The DCP fire extinguishers are available in different sizes such as 1 kg, 2 kg, 4 kg,6 kg,8 kg, and 12kg. The material of the cylinder is steel. The extinguishing agent is mono ammonium phosphate and ammonium sulfate powder and the discharge time of the agent is 13 seconds. The classes of fire it can effectively extinguish include classes A, B, C, and E.
WHAT DOES DCP FIRE EXTINGUISHER CONTAIN?
The chemical inside the fire extinguisher is a mixture of mono ammonium phosphate and ammonium sulfate powder. The proportion of these two chemical powders is 40:60 or 60:40. The mixture when heated can melt and flow. When the melted mixture the cylinder over the fire it coats the flames and terminates the fire.
WORKING PRINCIPLE OF DCP FIRE EXTINGUISHER
The fire breaks out when all the three elements of the fire triangle (heat, oxygen, fuel) are present. For the successful suppression of fire, any one element of the fire triangle should be absent. The dry powder type extinguishers work by discharging a fine powder using pressurized gas to spray it from the storage cylinder on the fire so that fire can be extinguished. DCP fire extinguisher puts out the fire by coating the fuel with a layer of powder and in this way the powder creates a barrier between the fuel and oxygen. When the fire extinguisher sprays the powder over the fire, this powder cuts off the supply of oxygen and rapidly knocks out the fire. After extinguishing the fire, we can clean the residue with the help of a vacuum cleaner.
WHAT CLASSES OF FIRE IT CAN EXTINGUISH?
DCP fire extinguishers are very reliable for extinguishing the following classes of fires:
CLASS A (ORDINARY COMBUSTIBLES):
Class A fire occurs due to material made of paper, wood, and textile. The fire extinguisher uses pressurized water, foam, and multipurpose dry chemical to extinguish the Class A fire.
CLASS B (FLAMMABLE LIQUIDS, GREASES, OR GASES):
The fire breaks out by liquids, greases, or gases such as petrol, diesel, or oil. Fire extinguisher uses Foam, carbon dioxide, dry chemical, and multipurpose dry chemical to extinguish Class B fire.
