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.
Badger Regular dry chemical is used to combat fires involving flammable liquids, gases and greases (Class B) including such fires when involved with energized electrical equipment (Class C). Specific applications include the protection of commercial food preparation equipment such as fryers, griddles, and range hoods as well as textile machinery. Badger Regular dry chemical is a sodium bicarbonate-based substance containing additives to make it free flowing, water repellant, non-abrasive and, when used as a fire extinguishing agent, produce no toxic effects. Post-fire cleanup can be readily accomplished with a vacuum cleaner or a broom and dust pan. Caution: Never mix Badger Regular dry chemical with phosphate-based dry chemicals. A chemical reaction will take place that is harmful to the extinguisher.
Replacement gas cartridges (item # 09726) and dry chemical refill agents are also available. The Safety Data Sheet (SDS) for the Badger Regular dry chemical agent is available for download.
