Amerex Model 680R Class D Sodium Chloride Wheeled Fire Extinguisher, 150 lb

Item #: 09582

Normal Availability: 2 weeks

Product Description

Class D wheeled extinguishers are ideal for large combustible metal fires. This Amerex model is well-balanced for quick transport on 36" (91 cm) diameter non-sparking, rubber-treaded steel wheels. The unit is pressurized with argon and regulated to a low 125 psi (861 kPa) to avoid disruption of the burning materials. The extinguishing agent is sodium chloride. Heat from the fire causes the agent to cake and form a crust, excluding air and dissipating heat from the burning metal. Although Amerex no longer posts it on their web site, they authored a technical note with practical information for using such extinguishers.

This unit comes with a wand applicator as shown here which is generally preferred as it permits the user to pile a thick layer of extinguishing agent on top of the fire. If you need standoff capability, a nozzle applicator with greater range is available by special order, however it is much harder to deposit the agent in a thick layer and may disrupt the burning material. Stationary design, non-sparking rubber tread wheels, and a pressure indicator are also available by special order.  

Metal fires involving magnesium, sodium, potassium, and sodium-potassium alloys can be successfully extinguished with this extinguisher. Zirconium, uranium, titanium, and powdered aluminum fires can have also been controlled and extinguished with this unique extinguisher. Lithium fires require either copper-powder (item # 09584 or 09592) or Lith-X (item # 09451 or 09747) agent.
