CleanGuard ® Fire Extinguishers manufactured by Ansul

CleanGuard ® Fire Extinguishers contain FE-36™ clean agent fire extinguishing agent, which is a hydrofluorocarbon with the ASHRAE designation of HFC-236fa and is manufactured by DuPont. Chemically it is hexafluoropropane, CF 3 CH 2 CF 3 . It does not contain bromine, like Halon 1211 (CF 2 ClBr), which is the component identified as contributing to the depletion of the earth’s ozone layer. With zero ozone depletion potential (ODP), FE-36™ is environmentally preferred and is an acceptable Halon 1211 alternative. BFPE International can provide you with the following CleanGuard ® portable fire extinguisher, safe for use in MRI facilities:

CleanGuard ® Model FE13NM – 13.25lb, 1A:10B:C rating, 3 Tesla (including wall hanger bracket)

Water Mist

Water Mist portable fire extinguishers consist of de-ionized water and employ a nozzle that discharges the agent in a fine spray making them effective on Class A fires where a potential Class C, electrical hazard exists. The fine spray provides safety from electrical shock and reduces scattering of burning material. The Water Mist portable fire extinguisher is available in two sizes – 1.75 gal and 2.5 gal – the larger of which provides a longer discharge time with twice as much agent. BFPE International can provide you with the following Water Mist portable fire extinguishers, safe for use in MRI facilities:

Amerex Model B270NM – 1.75gal, 2A:C rating (including wall hanger bracket)
Amerex Model B272NM – 2.5gal, 2A:C rating (including wall hanger bracket)

Carbon Dioxide

Carbon Dioxide portable fire extinguishers consist of carbon dioxide (CO 2 ), a colorless, odorless, and electrically non-conductive inert gas that does not leave a residue and is effective on Class B and Class C fires. BFPE International can provide you with the following Carbon Dioxide portable fire extinguisher, safe for use in MRI facilities:

Amerex Model 322NM – 5lb, 5B:C rating (including wall hanger bracket). Available in hospital white upon request.

Wheeled Units

ABC or Multi-Purpose Dry Chemical

An ABC or Multi-Purpose Dry Chemical portable fire extinguisher is effective on Class A, B and C fires. The dry chemical is mono ammonium phosphate. To extinguisher the fire, the powder chemically insulates Class A fires by melting at approximately 350F and coating the surface to which it is applied. For Class B fires, the powder smothers and breaks the chain reaction of the flammable liquid or gas. The powder will not conduct electricity back to the operator of the portable fire extinguisher making it safe for use in Class C fires. BFPE International can provide you with the following ABC or Multi-Purpose Dry Chemical wheeled unit portable fire extinguishers:
