The Amerex model 250CG AFFF Foam Extinguisher is rated 3A:20B and is for use on Class A (ordinary combustibles) and B (Flammable liquid) fires. This extinguisher features easy application using the hose and air aspirating nozzle. It provides exceptional knock down and penetrating ability for use on deep seated Class A fires and provides a foam blanket to prevent reignition of flammable liquid spills. And, of course, foam provides easier clean-up when compared with traditional dry chemical agents.
This unit is US Coast Guard approved when used with the 810CG bracket (sold separately). The extinguisher features a chrome- plated brass valve body with a red-painted stainless steel cylinder, affording superior corrosion protection. The large diameter pull pin can be easily operated with gloves on. This item must be protected from freezing and cannot be used on fires involving live electrical equipment.
This unit ships empty and comes with one bottle of foam concentrate to charge it with. The Schraeder valve on the valve body allows the user to charge the unit with compressed air or nitrogen using the Amerex 502 charge (refills or spares are also available separately) and potable water. Meets US Coast Guard requirements for "Type A, Size II" and "Type B, Size II" extinguishers. FM approved. You can download the Amerex SDS for CH 502 AFFF concentrate.
