Class D extinguishers are ideal for combustible metal fires. This Badger model WB570 extinguisher contains a special blended sodium chloride (NaCl) based dry powder extinguishing agent. Heat from the fire causes the agent to cake and form a crust, excluding air and dissipating heat from the burning metal. Metal fires involving magnesium, sodium, potassium and sodium-potassium alloys (NaK) can be controlled and extinguished with this unique extinguisher.
The extended soft flow applicator wand is particularly suited for fighting Class D fires. It keeps the operator's hands away from the extreme heat and prevents inhalation of toxic fumes caused by burning material. The easily controlled, even discharge provides a non-dispersing application of either agent. The applicator may be quickly detached to provide a straight stream of chemical where greater range, a narrow discharge pattern or a lobbing effect is required. The steel cylinder is coated with corrosion-resistant yellow paint. The unit features heavy-duty plated brass valves and stainless handles and levers. The unit is FM listed and comes with a six year manufacturer warranty.
Previous customers have recommended using the 09800 Heavy Duty Dolly Cart with this extinguisher as it can be rather heavy for some people.
