Homes must always have a fire extinguishing product to protect the homeowners, as well as the home structure from the imminent danger of an unexpected fire occurring inside the home. There is a new fire extinguisher product known as cold fire extinguisher spray that puts off fire faster and better than the conventional extinguisher.
The basic features of cold fire extinguisher spray are the following: it is a multipurpose suppressing agent, biodegradable, non-toxic, water soluble, and safe product, which can be kept under the kitchen sink, near the barbecue area or anywhere in the house where there is risk of fire. There are four components for a fire to exist – fuel, oxygen, heat and chemical chain reaction, which is referred to as fire tetrahedron, and most fire suppressing agents extinguish fires by breaking down one part of the tetrahedron component, which is either the heat or fuel; however, using the cold fire extinguishing spray process, its formulation has the capability to absorb heat, brings the fuel source under its flash point more quickly, stops the chemical chain reaction caused by the fire and breaks down the molecular structure of the hydrocarbon fuel source, thereby preventing re-ignition.
The effectiveness of the cold fire extinguisher spray product is due to its formulation and technology such that these has provided the product with these advantages: environmentally friendly as it is 100% biodegradable, non-toxic, non-corrosive; reduces the density of hydrocarbon smoke, thus allowing more visibility during fires; has unique rapid cooling capability which enhances safety and lowers the chances of flashover and re-ignition; shelf-life is indefinite if stored in closed containers between temperatures 28 degrees Fahrenheit and 120 degrees Fahrenheit; can be mixed by batches to create a booster tank; does not clog equipment or hose lines; and it is non-slip.
The Art of Mastering Sprays
When there is water used at the same time in extinguishing the fire, cold fire extinguisher spray becomes more efficient and brings these additional advantages, such as: it enhances the water’s ability to penetrate the source of the fire for fire fighters to gain entry into a room much faster, extinguishes fire with less water, and reduces the amount of water damage. With chemical fires, like ethanol fires, methanol and other polar solvents, cold fire extinguisher spray can extinguish chemical fires and a foaming nozzle is recommended to help bring down the vapors and kill the flames. Comparing foam spray and cold fire spray, foam is both toxic and corrosive, sits on top of the fuel source, blanketing and smothering to eliminate the oxygen, while cold fire spray does not only create a foam blanket to smother the fuel but it works into the fuel source to encapsulate and break the chemical chain reaction.The Essentials of Products – Revisited
