Where is a CO2 Extinguisher NOT Ideal?
One of the places a CO2 fire extinguisher should not be used is in a kitchen. Most kitchen fires are started with cooking oil-a substance that cannot be snuffed out by CO2. The reason for this is that oil fires can be easily asphyxiated by CO2 removing oxygen; however, it disperses quite quickly, which may cause popping and ultimate spreading of the fire.
CO2 extinguishers will also have very little effect on fires outside and fires of fixed materials (wood, cartons, plastics, paper etc)
All CO2 extinguishers are CE, SOLAS (M.E.D. 96/98/EC) and Class approved for the marine industry.
