CO2 Fire Extinguishers are used for Class B fires, including petrol fires, diesel fires, and oil fires etc.
CO2 Fire Extinguishers can also be used in cases of electrical fires including computer fires, disco equipment fires, and electrical machinery fires etc.
CO2’s come in 2 standard sizes, 2kg and 5kg and can also be used in cases of flammable liquid fires. CO2 Extinguishers are usually made from aluminium bodies as the gas inside needs to be kept at a very high pressure, and steel is often very heavy, so the aluminium keeps the Extinguisher relatively light.
