SPECIFICATIONS OF DCP FIRE EXTINGUISHER

The DCP fire extinguishers are available in different sizes such as 1 kg, 2 kg, 4 kg,6 kg,8 kg, and 12kg. The material of the cylinder is steel. The extinguishing agent is mono ammonium phosphate and ammonium sulfate powder and the discharge time of the agent is 13 seconds. The classes of fire it can effectively extinguish include classes A, B, C, and E.

 

 

WHAT DOES DCP FIRE EXTINGUISHER CONTAIN?

The chemical inside the fire extinguisher is a mixture of mono ammonium phosphate and ammonium sulfate powder. The proportion of these two chemical powders is 40:60 or 60:40. The mixture when heated can melt and flow. When the melted mixture the cylinder over the fire it coats the flames and terminates the fire.

 

 

WORKING PRINCIPLE OF DCP FIRE EXTINGUISHER

The fire breaks out when all the three elements of the fire triangle (heat, oxygen, fuel) are present. For the successful suppression of fire, any one element of the fire triangle should be absent. The dry powder type extinguishers work by discharging a fine powder using pressurized gas to spray it from the storage cylinder on the fire so that fire can be extinguished. DCP fire extinguisher puts out the fire by coating the fuel with a layer of powder and in this way the powder creates a barrier between the fuel and oxygen. When the fire extinguisher sprays the powder over the fire, this powder cuts off the supply of oxygen and rapidly knock out the fire. After extinguishing the fire, we can clean the residue with the help of a vacuum cleaner.

 

 

WHAT CLASSES OF FIRE IT CAN EXTINGUISH?

DCP fire extinguisher very reliable for extinguishing the following classes of fires:

 

CLASS A (ORDINARY COMBUSTIBLES):

Class A fire occurs due to material made of paper, wood, and textile. Fire extinguisher uses pressurized water, foam, and multipurpose dry chemical to extinguish the Class A fire.

 

CLASS B (FLAMMABLE LIQUIDS, GREASES, OR GASES):

The fire breaks out by liquids, greases, or gases such as petrol, diesel, or oil. Fire extinguisher uses Foam, carbon dioxide, dry chemical, and multipurpose dry chemical to extinguish Class B fire.

 

CLASS C (COMBUSTIBLE GASSES):

The Fire is caused by combustible gasses like natural gas, LPG.

 

CLASS E (ENERGIZED ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT):

Extinguish energized electrical equipment by using an extinguishing agent that is not capable of conducting electrical currents. Fire extinguishers used multipurpose dry chemical, carbon dioxide, and dry chemical to extinguish this type of fire.

 

 

TYPES OF DCP FIRE EXTINGUISHER

DCP Fire Extinguisher is further classified into two types based on classes of fire they extinguish and the chemical they used to extinguish the fire.

 

  1. ABE DRY CHEMICAL POWDER FIRE EXTINGUISHER: This is one of the commonly used types of DCP fire extinguishers. The name of ABE dry chemical powder is this because of the classes of fire it can extinguish effectively. It can extinguish Class A, Class B, and Class E fire. The cylinders contain mono ammonium phosphate which can melt and flow easily from the cylinder over the fire and extinguish the fire. They are useable in vehicles, home kitchens, workshops, homes, and offices, and so on.
  2. BE DRY CHEMICAL POWDER FIRE EXTINGUISHER: This is another type of DCP fire extinguisher. Because of the classes of fire, it can trigger we call it BE dry chemical fire extinguisher The powder inside the container does not melt that is why it is ineffective against class A fires so it is BE dry chemical powder. Both types of DCP Fire extinguishers can suppress the fire caused by flammable gas, but the user has to evaluate the situation before using it. Because after extinguishing the gas can leak out again and can cause re-ignition.
