ABC or Multi-Purpose fire extinguishers utilize a specially fluidized and siliconized mono ammonium phosphate dry chemical. It chemically insulates Class A fires by melting at approximately 350°F and coats surface to which it is applied. It smothers and breaks the chain reaction of Class B fires and will not conduct electricity back to the operator. These extinguishers are suitable for types of fires involving ordinary combustibles, flammable liquids and energized electrical equipment.
CARBON DIOXIDE is discharged as a white cloud of “snow” which smothers a fire by eliminating oxygen. It is effective for Class B flammable liquids and is electrically non-conductive. Carbon Dioxide is a clean, non-contaminating, odorless gas.
Large volume CO2 protection provided in either 50 or 100 lb. (2 – 50 lb. cylinders) wheeled extinguishers. Rugged construction and easy to operate with a “quick opening” ‘T’ handle valve and horn mounted shut-off valve. A logical choice in areas where a Class B:C non-contaminating agent is required and where hand portable extinguishers do not provide adequate protection.
The Amerex “soft flow” extension applicator is particularly suited for fighting Class D fires. It allows the operator to stand away from the extreme heat and toxic fumes caused by burning material. The easily controlled, even discharge provides a non-dispersing application of the agent. The extension applicator may be quickly detached to provide a straight stream of chemical where greater range is required.

From model scale aircraft to wide body commercial aircraft, from data centers to pharmaceutical and other industrial plants, the Halotron™ I agent has been used to extinguish the fire, limit damage and help reduce downtime that can be caused by other agents.
The Halotron™ I clean agent has been determined to be the most environmentally beneficial halocarbon agent on the market today that meets wide performance standards. The primary raw material in the agent is HCFC-123, which has an outstanding profile of near-zero ozone depleting potential (0.0098, CFC-11=1.0) and a low global warming potential (77, 100 yr. CO2 time horizon). State of the art atmospheric modeling completed in 2009 describes the smaller environmental footprint than HFC-based agents available for portable extinguishers.Ideal applications for these extinguishers include: data centers, laboratories, manufacturing plants, general office areas, computer rooms, telecommunication facilities, clean rooms, control rooms, warehouses, military electronics, vehicles including classic autos, boats, engine compartments, aircraft ramps, onboard aircraft and in facilities that service aircraft and any facility where dry chemical extinguishers could cause unacceptable damage or contamination.
The Amerex Halotron I™ extinguishers feature the same qualities found in all Amerex products and adds the convenience of a “clean” extinguishing agent. Halotron I™ extinguishing agent has proven itself as the leader in the hunt for an alternative “clean” agent by being the only alternative “clean” agent to obtain FAA approvals for both ramp use (ARFF Vehicle) and on-board an aircraft. Combining the quality of Amerex products with a proven alternative “clean” agent, the Amerex Halotron I™ wheeled extinguishers offer you the best value in the industry.
