The one and only non-toxic fire extinguisher that extinguishes more effective than a typical ABC powder extinguisher. These extinguishers are toxic, corrosive and destructive. They have to be checked and recharged yearly which incurs a cost.
Grease fires are the #1 cause of house fires and yet you cannot use an ABC extinguisher. Cold Fire on the other hand is new technology that can extinguish many classes of fires including A, B, D, and K. Those classes include everything from grass, wood, vehicles and utv’s (utility vehicles), liquids like gasoline and even magnesium and grease fires. It has been around since 1991 and is used by police and fire departments across the country. It’s non-toxic, non-corrosive, bio-degradable, and has no expiration date! It is safe for all ages and can be used to extinguish or protect an individual who may be trapped in a fire to provide time for emergency crews to extract the victim.
How does Cold Fire™ work?
To understand how Cold Fire works, you must first understand the basic structure of fire. In order for a fire to be created, four components are necessary: fuel, oxygen, heat and chemical chain reaction. These components form what is called a “fire tetrahedron.” Most agents extinguish fires by breaking down one leg of the tetrahedron, heat or fuel.
Cold Fire™ is considered to have 6 times the penetrating capability of water. This characteristic, coupled with its extraordinary capability to absorb heat, allows Cold Fire™ to penetrate a fire faster, absorb the heat, and bring the fuel source generating the fire under its flash point more quickly. Cold Fire™ also works to encapsulate the fuel source and its vapors, and simultaneously stops the chain reaction and begins to break down the molecular structure of the hydrocarbon fuel source, preventing re-ignition. It comes in the standard formula that comes in a silver can that has a freezing point of 32 degrees Fahrenheit or the newest formula which has a freezing point of -20 degrees Fahrenheit and comes in a black canister with a handle.
