How Does a Wet Chemical Fire Extinguisher Work?

Wet Chemical Fire Extinguishers contains a solution of potassium which effectively attacks the flame in two methods:

Firstly the mist cools the fire and lowers the temperature to stop the fire spreading, also prevents splashing of the hot oils/fat.

Secondly 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.
