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 C (electrical) fires. These types of systems work by flooding a volume of space, such as a vehicle engine compartment, with the fire fighting agent to suffocate the flame.
AFEX dry chemical systems provide fast fire knockdown and perform especially well in enclosed ares. They are suitable for temperatures as low as -40°F (-40°C) and are available in 20, 30, 60, and 125 pound sizes.
