Class K Wet Chemical Fire Extinguishers

Inspection | Testing | Service | Sales

If you run a busy kitchen, fire safety is always a concern. Unfortunately, corrosive dry chemical extinguishers can damage your sensitive cooking equipment, and using a water fire extinguisher on a grease fire can be catastrophic. Fortunately, Guardian Fire Protection sells a variety of Class K Wet Chemical fire extinguishers designed specifically to handle the types of fires that might pop up in commercial kitchens.

Class K fire extinguishers contain a potassium acetate-based, low pH extinguishing agent originally designed for use in commercial kitchen fire suppression systems and tested on commercial deep fat fryers using the same type of fire test. Class K fire extinguishers discharge as a fine mist that helps to prevent splashing grease and fire reflashes while also cooling the appliance. They are the ideal choice for use on all cooking appliances, including solid fuel charbroilers.

At Guardian Fire Protection, we offer a variety of Class K Wet Chemical fire extinguishers, including:

Amerex Purple K – Purple-K extinguishers contain a fluidized, siliconized potassium bicarbonate dry chemical that is particularly effective at putting out Class B fires, both of which are commonly found in commercial kitchen environments. As an added bonus, Purple-K is electrically non-conductive so it’s safe when dealing with Class C (electrical) fires.

Badger Kitchen Defender – The firefighting power and user-friendly design of Badger Wet Chemical portable extinguishers makes them the ideal choice for commercial restaurant applications. These stored pressure extinguishers have been designed to offer the very best portable fire protection available to supplement pre-engineered restaurant fire suppression systems.
