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.
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
