Dry Chemical Powders(DCP)

Areas of Use

Dry powder is a highly versatile Class A, B & C fire-fighting medium for any fire risk. In addition to dealing with electrical hazards, flammable liquids and gasses, powder is also effective for vehicle fires.
SABS CERTIFICATION MARK - SANS 1910

Approvals

Accepted and recognised by the organisations: SABS, A.S.I.B, Fire Surveyor's Association of S.A., Department of Public Works & Land Affairs, SA Post Office, Telkom, Department of Transport, Department of Education, Department of Water Affairs, Chamber of Mines, Spoornet, SANDF, Armscor, Escom, Iscor, Municipal Fire Departments and the major oil companies.

Features

  1. Multi-purpose Extinguisher
  2. Simple method of operation
  3. Unique tamper-evident safety pin
  4. Corrosion-resistant high quality durable finish
  5. Rugged design ensures long service life
  6. Rapid flame knock-down is achieved with our special powder formulation
  7. Much improved fire ratings
  8. Controllable discharge ensures fire-fighting efficiency
  9. Silkscreen label, giving permanent markings and manufacturer identification
  10. High performance valve
  11. Wind tunnel designed discharge nozzle

Applications

Suitable for Class A (combustible materials: wood, paper, textiles, B (flammable liquids/gases - petrol, oil, solvents/propane, butane, LPG, acetylene), and C (electrical) fire risks.

Maintenance

Every 12 months, or sooner, (depending on local authorities or risk area). New line pressure testing of cylinder is required every 5 years to comply with SANS 10105 and SABS 1475.

Fire Rating

These ratings measure the knock down capability of fire fighting equipment.
They are categorised into Class A Fire and Class B Fire rating categories:

  1. Class A Fire indicating organically consumable material fires e.g. wood, paper, textiles etc.
  2. Class B Fire indicating flammable liquids and flammable gas fires e.g. petrol, oil, methane gas etc.

The 9kg 34-40% DCP Extinguisher has the highest fire ratings of the South African manufactured extinguishers being 43A/233B. This indicates that on the Class A fire rating the extinguisher extinguishes a wooden crib fire 0.5m wide, 0.56m long and 43m high. The rating figure is ten times the length in metres.

Class B is related to the surface area. The rating figure relates to the quantity of flammable liquid in a mixture of water and fuel that can be extinguished in a circular pan. The numerical figure relates to the litres of fuel used. The 9kg extinguisher has the capability to extinguish a fire of 233 litre of petrol, a true test of knockdown capability. No other local extinguisher has a Class B rating more than 183B.

This fact illustrates the importance of research scientific design and quality when manufacturing extinguishers.
