3.5Kg CO2 Carbon Dioxide Fire Extinguisher
Fire Products Direct 3.5Kg CO2 Fire Extinguisher (Carbon Dioxide) is used on class B (Flammable Liquid) & E (electrical) fires. This type of extinguisher is suitable for use on fires involving burning liquids, but is also a good solution for quenching fires involving computer equipment and other electrical appliances, as it does not cause damage to the electrical items and does not cause the system to short circuit.
3.5Kg CO2 Carbon Dioxide fire extinguisher is the only model that is recommended for a fire that involves electrical equipment. This is due to the fact the carbon dioxide gas is non-conductive and that once it has been discharged does not produce or leave any kind of residue as would happen if a powder or foam model was deployed. Another great use of the CO2 extinguisher is on Class B fires that involve flammable liquids, making this quite a versatile product.
When to Use CO2 Fire Extinguisher?
CO2 extinguisher can be used to extinguish electrical fires and fires involving flammable liquids such as petrol.
The carbon dioxide extinguisher should not be used in the following scenarios:
- Fires involving flammable metals
- Kitchen fires
- Fires involving materials like paper or textiles.
Where to Use CO2 Fire Extinguisher?
This type of fire extinguisher works by suffocating the fire with CO2, causing the oxygen to be displaced and the fire to burn out.

CO2 fire extinguishers are mainly aimed at electrical fires but are also suitable for Class B liquid fires and are used in different ways depending on the type of fire they are being used on. Do not use CO2 extinguishers in very small spaces, as there is a risk of asphyxiation.
Only tackle small fires with an extinguisher. If the fire has taken hold do not fight the fire but evacuate immediately and warn others of the fire, then call the fire and rescue service
CO2 fire extinguishers are ideal for places with a lot of electrical equipment such as offices or server rooms because they are safe to use on fires involving electrical apparatus. Carbon dioxide extinguishers do not leave any residue, unlike a foam extinguisher. They can also be used on Class B fires, those involving flammable liquids such paraffin or petrol. CO2 extinguishers work by smothering the fire and cutting off the supply of air.
