Carbon Dioxide Extinguishers
Carbon Dioxide extinguishers are filled with non-flammable carbon dioxide gas under extreme pressure. You can recognize a CO2 extinguisher by its hard horn and lack of pressure gauge. The pressure in the cylinder is so great that when you use one of these extinguishers, bits of dry ice may shoot out the horn.
CO2 cylinders are red and range in size from 5 lbs to 100 lbs or larger. In the larger sizes, the hard horn will be located on the end of a long, flexible hose.
CO2s are designed for Class B and C
(flammable liquid and electrical) fires only.
Carbon dioxide extinguishes work by displacing oxygen, or taking away the oxygen element of the fire triangle. The carbon dioxide is also very cold as it comes out of the extinguisher, so it cools the fuel as well. CO2s may be ineffective at extinguishing Class A fires because they may not be able to displace enough oxygen to successfully put the fire out. Class A materials may also smolder and re-ignite.
CO2s will frequently be found in laboratories, mechanical rooms, kitchens, and flammable liquid storage areas.
All CO2 extinguishers at USC undergo hydrostatic testing and recharge every five years.
CO2 fire extinguishers are safe to use on fires in, on or around electrical equipment and live cables. CO2 gas is dry, inert in air, and leaves behind no residue that will affect electrical equipment’s future operation. So, you will often find a CO2 fire extinguisher next to precious electrical equipment, from switchgear to mobile discos.
In most office, workplace, factory or warehouse situations, the best combination is to have a water additive or foam unit alongside your CO2 extinguisher, for maximum fire fighting ability.
CO2 fire extinguishers should not be used on Class D fires, involving flammable metals. The CO2 gas reacts with many volatile metals, and as with other non-D rated extinguishers, can also blow burning metal over a wide area, making the situation worse. And it is not affective on Class A fires such as paper, wood or cloth.
CO2 fire extinguishers do not have pressure gauges, as the gas is condensed in the cylinder. The only way to assess if a CO2 fire extinguisher is empty is to weigh it. The gross weight (G W) is stamped into the meatl of the cylinder shoulder with other information. To assess how full your CO2 fire extinguisher is, weigh it (without the swivel horn) and compare this to the stamped gross weight.
However, rather than take the risk of a part-used fire extinguisher, or have the expense of a call-out visit and factory refilling or service exchange, it is often more cost effective to replace a used CO2 fire extinguisher with a new one. Expert firms or your local Civic Amenity Centre (the local dump) will be happy to recycle your old CO2 fire extinguisher.
