Wheeled Dry Chemical

Wheeled fire extinguishers come with a number of benefits, including an increased capacity for fire suppression agents, higher agent flow rates, extended discharge times. Primarily, they work in bigger areas on bigger fires.

These dry chemical wheeled fire extinguishers can be an excellent multi-purpose option for use in a number of facilities. These units are appropriate anywhere there is a potential of a large-scale fire, including:

  • Steel mills
  • Loading docks
  • Airports/Heliports
  • Factories
  • Full depots
  • Workshops

They are available in ABC, BC and Purple K formats. Although these extinguishers tend to have a greater capacity, they are still relatively compact and can normally be operated by one person. Large diameter wheels make these extinguishers easy to maneuver, and a fast-opening valve allows for quick actuation. As always, it’s incredibly important that employees are well-trained on best practices with this type of equipment and properly trained on safe usage for wheeled extinguishers. We carry 50 LB and 125 LB ABC stored pressure wheeled extinguishers from Amerex and 150LB and 350LB cartridge operated wheeled units from Ansul.

Wheeled fire extinguishers are priced based on their volume, ranging from 50LB to 350LB. Depending on the size of the fire extinguisher, the construction and wheel mechanism will change. We carry a variety of different wheeling mechanisms to best suit your needs.

A wheeled fire extinguisher works similarly to a handheld ABC , or Purple K fire extinguisher he wheeling mechanism allows for a greater capacity of fire suppression agent to be used on moved to an area where fire suppression is required. With this increased volume, they allow for a longer discharge time, and higher flow rates. They most often used in larger industrial areas with the potential for larger fires such as oil and gas refineries, airports, heliports, and railway yards.

The two types of wheeled extinguishers are stored pressure-wheeled and cartridge-operated extinguishers. Stored pressure extinguishers contain nitrogen gas that propels the agent inside the canister as a dry chemical. Meanwhile, cartridge-operated canisters store their nitrogen in a separate pressurized cartridge that must be released to activate the extinguisher.

The extinguisher should be wheeled within a safe distance of the fire depending on the effective range of agent throw. This will vary depending on the size and manufacturer. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions as stored pressure and cartridge operated wheeled fire extinguishers operate differently and operate under great pressure.
