About our extinguishers..
Fire One extinguishers are the next generation in fire extinguisher technology. Unlike traditional extinguishers in design or features, they are a giant leap forward like the iPhone was to the flip phone or Nokia; they are a completely different experience.
Fire One extinguishers are a condensed aerosol type extinguisher that utilise a potassium based agent. The particles are 600 times smaller than those in a dry powder enabling them to be much smaller in size for a comparative extinguishing ability.
The patented solid aerosol generating compound (extinguishing media A) is contained within a steel canister inside the extinguisher.
Pressing the start button initiates a controlled combustion process which converts the solid into an aerosol suspending nano-particle extinguishing agent (extinguishing media B).
The energy created during the controlled burn propels the aerosol and the particles that are suspended in the aerosol are 0.01 microns in size (that's about 600 times smaller than the width of a hair).
As a safety feature of Fire One extinguishers; the generated extinguishing agent passes through a cooling chamber prior to exiting the discharge nozzle. This process ensures a discharge temperature less than 35 degrees celcius to prevent burns to the user.
HOW FIRE ONE PRODUCTS EXTINGUISH FIRES
All fires require heat, fuel, oxygen and a chemical chain reaction to continue to burn. Removing any one of these four elements will cause a fire to go out.
During combustion, free radicals, (oxygen, hydrogen and hydroxide) are released to further fuel the fire's growth and continue combustion. This is what is known as the chemical chain reaction.
The Potassium based extinguishing agent in Fire One extinguishers bind to the free radicals changing the chemical composition of the fire and breaking the chain reaction to extinguish the fire.
