Providing the most efficient protection of any fire suppression system, dry chemical systems are the industry standard for heavy equipment applications. Dry chemical is effective against Class A (debris), Class B (fuel), and Class E (electrical) fires. These types of systems work by flooding a volume of space, such as a vehicle engine compartment, with a fire fighting agent to suffocate the flame.
AFEX dry chemical systems provide fast fire knockdown and perform especially well in enclosed areas. They are suitable for temperatures as low as -65°F (-54C) and are available in 20, 30, 60, and 125 pound sizes.
