The new E-Series water mist fire extinguishers from Jewel Saffire present a ground-breaking step in fire fighting. Using de-mineralised water, the water mist extinguishers use low pressure and a supersonic micron nozzle to discharge 100% environmentally friendly water in a fine mist. This mist expels oxygen from the surrounding environment to cut off the supply that keeps the fire burning. Once the fire is extinguished, the water mist then acts as a cooling blanket to soak into the burning fuel and prevent re-ignition.
After discharging a water mist fire extinguisher, the clean-up is quick and easy, with most of the water agent evaporating upon contact with the fire. These extinguishers are perfect for kitchens and food prep areas (where traditional powder or wet chemicals would usually leave a messy, poisonous residue and may involve having to shut down for a period) or areas where the contents are paper based or valuable. The extinguishers are also suitable for boats and other confined spaces. The LPCB approval on these extinguishers certifies ratings of up to 13A, 21B and 75F (on the 6litre model), unheard of for water fire extinguishers. Having passed a 35kV dielectrical test, water mist extinguishers are safe to use around electrical equipment without endangering the user.
