Cartridge Fire Extinguishers, in contrast to the more common stored pressure fire extinguishers, are not permanently pressurised. Inside the extinguisher is instead a gas cartridge which is pierced when the extinguisher handle is operated. The gas then pushes the contents of the extinguisher out and extinguishes the fire. While the maintenance of cartridge extinguishers is more involved, they are still commonly used on marine vessels or anywhere where extinguishers might need re-pressurising (e.g. after use) without a compressor being available.
