Badger's 50PB stored pressure 50 lb Purple-K fire extinguisher is an effective and economical way of addressing the many forms of high risk fire hazards found within commercial and industrial facilities, particularly those handling flammable liquids. The compact size allows for single person operation as well as easy passage through a standard doorway.
Purple-K is one of the most effective dry chemicals against Class B fires. It is a potassium bicarbonate-based material containing chemical additives. The resulting agent is free-flowing, water-repellant, non-abrasive and, when used as a fire extinguishing agent, will produce no toxic effects. Purple-K is violet in color to differentiate it from other dry chemical agents. Cleanup is readily accomplished with a vacuum cleaner or a broom and dust pan.
Purple-K is at least 4 to 5 times more effective in extinguisher applications than carbon dioxide and more than twice as effective as sodium bicarbonate-based extinguishers. This agent is approved or listed by nationally recognized testing laboratories and meets U.S. and Canadian government specifications. Caution: never mix this agent with phosphate-based dry chemicals. A chemical reaction will take place that is harmful to the extinguisher.
This unit features a 25' (7.6 m) hose, a heavy-duty plated brass valve, and 12" (30.5 cm) semi-pneumatic tires. This unit is UL listed, meets DOT requirements, and comes with a 6-year manufacturer warranty. It is US Coast Guard approved.
For additional extinguishing capacity and a longer hose, consider the 125 lb Model 150PB, item # 09511.
