Purple-K Fire Extinguishers

Inspection | Testing | Service | Sales

Purple-K fire extinguishers contain a fluidized, siliconized potassium bicarbonate dry chemical that is highly effective at putting out Class B fires (flammable liquid fires). Purple-K is also electrically non-conductive, so it’s safe for use against Class C (electrical) fires.

Purple-K fire extinguishers are commonly used in the oil, gas, chemical, and utilities industries, as well as in oil refineries, airport ramps, service stations, military facilities, naval warships, power plants, and other places where flammable liquids are handled and stored. Purple-K is often paired with foam in twin agent systems, and is sometimes found fitted to airport fire suppression systems.

Purple-K is used in small handheld or larger wheeled extinguishers as well as mobile and stationary units, including fixed-nozzle piping systems.

Purple-K is a highly effective fire suppression material, but it can be very difficult to clean up, especially when it gets wet. In addition, it should never be mixed with phosphate-based fire suppression agents such as ABC dry chemical fire extinguishers, as these will react together and ruin the efficiency of the Purple-K.
