Ansul's LX-1-30-G-1 Class D Lith-X Red Line Cartridge Extinguisher is charged with Ansul's Lith-X™a graphite-based dry powder blended for use on lithium metal fires. This agent is also effective on fires involving high-melting metals such as zirconium or titanium.
Ansul Red Line dry chemical extinguishers utilize a gas cartridge system so they are field-refillable (with proper training) and inspections can be made on every moving part. This extinguisher is used in industries where the occurrence or possibility of fire is high. Given the heavy weight of this unit, previous customers have recommended using the 09800 Heavy Duty Dolly Cart with this extinguisher.

- 3 piece, welded steel dry chemical tank.

Technical note: Rechargeable lithium ion batteries do not pose a Class D fire threat but typically involve a flammable electrolyte material or casing and should be protected by an appropriate Class ABC or BC dry chemical extinguisher. ABC would be your first choice unless you had other considerations - for example, aircraft or electronic equipment would dictate a Class BC dry chemical or clean agent such as CleanGuard, Halotron, carbon dioxide or water. For a technical report that discusses suppression of lithium ion battery fires see the suppression discussion of Lithium Ion Batteries Hazard and Use Assessment at the NFPA. Lithium metal batteries (which are single use) do pose a Class D threat.
