BC Fire Extinguishers are considered a Dry Chemical Extinguisher. They can put out both Class B and C fires caused by flammable liquids (B) and energized electrical equipment (C). They are filled with either potassium or sodium bicarbonate. *Potassium bicarbonate is considered a more effective chemical agent than sodium bicarbonate.
This type of extinguisher will leave a dry residue afterwards and if possible should be cleaned immediately after the fire is out. It can easily be mounted on a wall with a wall hook or bracket. This type is ideal for many applications. Keep one on your boat, in your garage or in your kitchen! If you have questions about choosing the right extinguisher.
