    Overview for Amerex 488 125 lbs Stored Pressure Wheeled ABC Fire Extinguisher

    Keep your facility fire-ready while minimizing costs with the Amerex 488 125 lbs Stored Pressure Wheeled ABC Fire Extinguisher. This large-capacity, portable extinguisher is designed for large facilities with extra-high risks of Class A (ordinary combustibles), B (flammable liquid/gas), and C (electrical equipment) fires. Amerex stored pressure extinguishers are less expensive to purchase, maintain, and service, and are as reliable as cartridge-operated units. With a UL rating of 30A:240B:C, the firefighting power of the Amerex 488 is equal to that of 37.5 gallons of water. One unit can suppress 240 square feet of Class B fires. With a cage-type design and well-balanced platform, the carriage of the Amerex 488 keeps the cylinder secured and protected during transportation and operation. 

    Multi-purpose ABC agent. The Amerex 488 contains 125 pounds of the ABC dry chemical agent, a unique, specially fluidized and siliconized mono ammonium phosphate dry chemical that is yellow in color. It insulates Class A fires and smothers and breaks the chain reaction of Class B fires. It will not conduct electricity back to the operator. The ABC agent is free-flowing, non-abrasive, water-repellent, and does not produce toxic effects when used. It can produce mild corrosion when mixed with moisture in post-fire situations, making prompt cleanup extremely important. The Amerex 488 has a discharge range of 30-40 feet and a discharge time of 48 seconds. 

    Portable and user-friendly. All Amerex wheeled extinguishers are designed to be as compact as possible to make them easy to maneuver and transport in narrow hallways, doorways, and confined spaces by a single operator. The 16” semi-pneumatic rubber tires of the Amerex 488 are easy to use on rough, uneven terrains. It comes with a 50 ft hose for easy and safe agent application, and it is labeled with a large instruction pictogram and a UL/ULC label with a QR code. The stored pressure design keeps the chemical and pressure sealed in the agent cylinder, always protected from contamination and ready to be discharged anytime. The large fill opening makes the Amerex 488 easy to service. 

    Rugged, reliable build. Amerex is known for its high-quality fire extinguishers that are guaranteed to last long with proper maintenance and service. The Amerex 488 features an all-metal, corrosion-resistant construction including the heavy-duty steel cylinder, carriage, and hose rack, as well as the brass valve, stainless-steel fasteners, gauge guards, brass hose fitting, and live swivel on the discharge valve. It is safe to use at temperatures ranging from -65º to 120º. 

    Applications. Because of its portability and versatility, the Amerex 488 is ideal for construction sites, airports, parking lots, loading docks, and other large commercial and industrial spaces with high amounts of highly combustible materials. ABC extinguishers are usually used in offices, school campuses, laboratories, chemical storage areas, and the logging industry.
