Water-Type Fire Extinguishers contain Water and/or Water-based agents, such as Aqueous Film-Forming Foam (AFFF), Film-Forming Fluoroprotein Foam (FFFP), and Antifreeze. These fire extinguishers leave no powder residue and are effective on Class A and some Class B fires. There are two basic types of water-type fire extinguishers, Loaded Stream, and Foam. We also offer Water Mist fire extinguishers.
A Loaded Stream fire extinguisher is effective on Class A fires. An anti-freeze charge can be added to provide freeze protection to -40F.
An AFFF Foam fire extinguisher is effective on Class A and Class B fires. It can be applied to Class B liquid spills to prevent ignition. They are ideal for emergency first response vehicles.
An FFFP Foam fire extinguisher is effective on Class A and Class B fires. FFFP is an alcohol resistant agent making it effective on Class B fires involving alcohols, polar solvents, hydrocarbons, and combinations of these. It can be applied to Class B liquid spills to prevent ignition.
