Carbon dioxide gas is anefficient fire extinguishing agent which offers unique properties to user. Thecolourless and odourless gas is heavier than air and works by smothering theflames and reducing the oxygen content of the air around the fire. Carbondioxide is the ideal agent for use on Class B (flammable liquids) and Class C(flammable gas) fires. It is non conductive and therefore particularlyeffective against fires in electrical plant and equipment. Carbon dioxideextinguishers are used throughout industry as a protection againstcomplex industrial fires when dangerous chemical and gasses are involved.Carbon dioxide does not deteriorate with storage or freeze in the container.
After use carbondioxide disperses without leaving any contamination or corrosive residue but ifused in a confined area normal ventilation procedures should be followed
