Fire extinguishers are categorized based on the types of fires they can combat, ranging from Class A for common combustibles like paper and wood to Class K for kitchen fires. The extinguishing agents in each type work uniquely to either cool down the burning material, displace or remove the oxygen, or interfere with the chemical reactions that make the fire continue. This ensures quick and effective fire suppression, safeguarding both lives and property.
Kitchen fires, particularly those involving cooking oils and fats, require specialized fire extinguishers. Our Lohtragon® wet chemical extinguishing products use potent agents like potassium acetate, potassium carbonate, or potassium citrate. These agents react with cooking oils to form a foam-like layer, effectively cutting off the oxygen supply and suppressing the fire in seconds.
Case Study Lohtragon® O52 - Rapid, Residue-Free & Effective Fire Suppression
Fire extinguishers containing Lohtragon® O52 | our aqueous solution based on Potassium Acetate showcased a superior ability to rapidly suppress fires by disrupting the combustion process and cooling the burning material efficiently. They demonstrated a decreased likelihood of re-ignition and proved environmentally friendly, with minimal residues post-application, marking potassium acetate as a pivotal component in enhancing the efficiency and eco-friendliness of fire extinguisher formulations.
Our primary focus lies in offering a range of Lohtragon® products that leverage advanced chemical formulations, including both dry and wet chemicals. These extinguishers are not just robust but also highly efficient, making them ideal choices for various settings.
When you opt for a Lohtragon® fire extinguishing agent, you are choosing a product built on advanced chemical know-how tailored for specific requirements. Do not compromise on your safety.
