6ltr Water fire extinguishers with additive cover class A fires, but the use of a foaming additive has enabled these smaller extinguishers to produce the same fire rating as their 9ltr counterparts.
These extinguishers are a good compromise between weight and rating making them ideal for office areas, shops and business premises; where a high A class fire rating reduces the number of fire extinguishers needed. These extinguishers have also passed the 35kV conductivity test so are safe if accidentally discharged onto live electrical equipment.
This is the technical data for the 6ltr Water Fire Extinguisher with Additive - Ultrafire.

Q. Can you tell me why a 6 litre water extinguisher with additive has the same rating as a 9 litre water extinguisher without additive (21A)?
A. The chemical additives in water additive fire extinguishers lower the surface tension of the water. The lowered surface tension makes the water soak into burning materials quicker and easier, so that they are more effective in tackling the fire. Other chemicals (i.e. soaping agents such as those found in foam fire extinguishers) are usually mixed with these chemicals, lowering the surface tension still further, increasing the cooling and smothering effect and increasing the waters fire-fighting capabilities.
