Hydrex Fire Extinguishers

These extinguishers are very similar to water extinguishers, but contain an additive which reduces their electrical conductivity.  They are not designed for use on electrical fires, but can be used safely near electrical appliances and power sockets without fear of electrocution.  Hydrex extinguishers are typically used in homes and places where children have access to them, or where they may be accidentally set off.

Advantages:

  • Suitable for many environments where there is a risk of Class A or Class B fires
  • Can be used safely near sources of electricity
  • Higher fire fighting rating (longer discharge time) than plain water extinguishers

Disadvantages:

  • The liquid in the extinguisher will damage electrical equipment such as computers (although these may of course have already been damaged by the fire itself)
