    Overview for Amerex 489 125 lbs Wheeled Stored Pressure Purple K Fire Extinguisher (Class B:C)

    The Amerex 489 150 lbs Wheeled Regular Dry Chemical Stored Pressure Fire Extinguisher (Class B:C) is a mobile, large-capacity extinguisher for facilities with extra-high risks of large-scale Class B (flammable liquid/gas) and C (electrical equipment) fires. It uses 150 lbs of Regular Dry Chemical, a siliconized sodium bicarbonate-based agent, to suppress as much as 240 square feet of Class B fires. The Amerex 489 is easy to transport using the wheeled carriage, making it ideal for large commercial and industrial spaces where mobile, high-capacity extinguishers are needed, such as oil refineries, construction sites, parking lots, and loading docks. 

    Reliable fire suppressant: Regular dry chemical is a free-flowing and non-caking agent that knocks down fires by smothering or separating the fuel from the oxygen. It also interrupts the chemical reaction of the fire. When discharged, the agent of the Amerex 489 can reach 30 to 40 feet and last for 53 seconds. 

    User-friendly: The stored pressure design of the Amerex 489 makes it very easy to operate. It has a compact design and easy-rolling wheels that make it easy to maneuver and transport in narrow hallways, doorways, and confined spaces by a single operator. It comes with a 50 ft hose for easy and safe agent application, and it is labeled with a large instruction pictogram for quick reference and a UL/ULC label with QR code. The carriage has built-in holes for easy lifting. 

    Rugged build: Like all Amerex extinguishers, this extinguisher is made of high-quality materials that ensure long shelf life. The cylinder, carriage, and hose rack are made of heavy-duty stainless steel painted with a corrosion-resistant finish. It also has stainless-steel fasteners, a stainless-steel gauge guard, a chrome-plated brass valve, brass hose fittings, and a live swivel on the discharge valve. It is safe to use at temperatures ranging from -65º to 120º. 

    With the quality you’d expect from Amerex, the Amerex 489 150 lbs Wheeled Regular Dry Chemical Stored Pressure Fire Extinguisher (Class B:C) provides excellent fire protection for extra-high hazard areas with single-person transport and operation.
