Wet Chemical Fire Extinguishers
A wet chemical fire extinguisher is vital for any environment where oils and fats are used at high temperatures, particularly in commercial kitchens. This is because ordinary water units would evaporate or spread the flames when the oil is disturbed.
Wet chemical fire extinguishers use a special chemical which forms an extinguishing layer over the liquid to cut off the oxygen and cool the solution.
At Fire Safety Equipment, we supply wet chemical extinguishers - featuring yellow labels - for businesses and premises across the UK.

What can wet chemical fire extinguishers be used for?
Wet chemical fire extinguishers can be used on class A fires but have been specifically designed for class F fires, where cooking oils or fats have caught fire. This is because the chemical solution can be sprayed to create a layer over the liquid, cooling the solution and extinguishing the flames.
What can’t wet chemical fire extinguishers be used for?
Wet chemical fire extinguishers can’t be used to tackle fires involving flammable liquids (class B), flammable gases (class C) or electrical fires, as they will not be effective in extinguishing the flames.
