Wet Chemical Fire Extinguishers
Wet Chemical Extinguishers are specifically designed to tackle cooking oil / deep fat fryer (Class F) fires. They also have an effective capability for extinguishing Class A fires minimising the total number of extinguishers required per floor.
The contents of the extinguisher react chemically with the oil turning the fuel for the fire into a solid, soapy substance. This coats the surface of the fire and prevents re-ignition, unlike a traditional fire blanket that may be removed too soon.
Wet Chemical extinguishers are the only type available that can be safely used on class F fires. The hose/lance attachment comes as standard and allows the user to stay a safe distance from the fire whilst operating the extinguisher.
Every catering environment that uses deep fat, or even shallow frying should consider a Wet Chemical extinguisher as part of their fire safety precautions. If you are unsure whether a Wet Chemical extinguisher is required for your premises consult your Fire Risk Assessment.
