Badger Brigade dry chemical extinguishers utilize a carbon dioxide (CO2) 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. These units are ideal for remote locations where smaller fires occur and on-the-spot-recharging is necessary. Typical applications include trucks, production line machinery, paint lockers and mining equipment.
Each Brigade model is fitted with a low maintenance swivel discharge nozzle to accommodate both right and left-handed operators. Each features a stainless steel cartridge guard and ring pin for extended life. 360° attachment welds on the steel cylinder ensure added strength and better corrosion resistance. These units are UL Listed and USCG Approved (when equipped with the optional bracket) and come with a 12 year manufacturer warranty.
Purple-K is used to combat fires involving flammable liquids, gases and greases (Class B) including such fires when involved with energized electrical equipment (Class C). This agent is widely used in the petroleum industry and in other areas where the fire risk is high.
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.
