Wet Chemical Fire Extinguishers are suitable for use on Class K Fires. These ranges of extinguishers are specialists in regards to cooking fires caused by oils and fat. Kitchen Fire Extinguisher are specifically designed for commercial kitchens, food processing units, etc.
Wet Chemical Fire Extinguisher contains a solution of potassium which effectively attacks the flame in two methods:
1st the mist cools the fire and lowers the temperature to stop the fire spreading, also prevents splashing of the hot oils/fat.
2nd the potassium salts react with the hot oil and causes the process of saponification, coating the surface of the cooking oil or fat in soapy foam that is non-combustible and acts as a barrier between the fat and oil.
Kitchen type fire extinguishers use a clean agent as the extinguishing agent. This ensures that no residues are left behind post use and you can remain hassle-free about the same. These K class fire extinguishers are designed in a way to provide rapid and targeted action in the case of kitchen fires.
