Model 272 Water Mist Fire Extinguisher

After eight years of research and testing of every known clean agent substitute for halon, Amerex is pleased to announce a viable, unique alternative.

The Amerex Water Mist Model 272 Fire Extinguisher

Water is the ultimate agent - it is NON-TOXIC, and has no ODP (Ozone Depletion Potential), it does not contribute to global warming, there are no environmental concerns about its atmospheric life, it has no toxic products of decomposition. Its extinguishing properties are universally understood - preferred by novice and professional fire fighters alike, it will always be available and it is one of the least expensive agents known.

What better agent to use than one that supports life itself on this planet?

Clean and Safe - it creates no risk to the occupants nor damage to surrounding equipment. The purpose of a hand portable fire extinguisher is to stop fires in their very early - incipient stages, to save lives and to protect the surrounding area and equipment from further damage.


This is the ultimate extinguisher for Class A fires, especially where a potential Class C (electrical) hazard exists. The unique misting nozzle not only provides the safety from electrical shock but it greatly enhances the cooling and soaking characteristics of the agent. Unequivocally the best extinguisher for hospital environments, telecommunications facilities and "clean room" manufacturing facilities.

Amerex Model 272 is the friendly solution to many problems associated with many other types of hand portable fire extinguishers!
