    Overview for Amerex 595 High Performance Fast Flow Purple K Dry Chemical Fire Extinguisher (Class B:C)

    The Amerex High-Performance Fast Flow Purple K Dry Chemical Fire Extinguishers (Class B:C) are high-power extinguishers that use a potassium bicarbonate agent (called Purple K) to stop Class B (flammable fuel/gas) and Class C (electrical equipment) fires. Purple K stops Class B fire by breaking the chain reaction and is also electrically non-conductive. Compared with standard-performance Purple K extinguishers, High Performance Fast Flow Purple K extinguishers have higher discharge range and rates, making them the ideal choice for high-risk industries such as oil, gas, chemical, and utility industries where fast knockdowns of three-dimensional fuel fires are needed. The High Performance Fast Flow Purple K Extinguisher is available in capacities of 13.2 lbs, 20 lbs, and 30 lbs. 

    Highly effective Purple K agent. The Purple K agent is a specially fluidized and siliconized potassium bicarbonate dry chemical that is non-abrasive, is water-repellent, and does not produce toxic effects when used to extinguish fires. It’s also shown to be at least 4 to 5 times as effective in extinguishing fires as carbon dioxide and more than twice as effective as sodium bicarbonate. 

    High Performance for greater range. High Performance Amerex extinguishers have a greater horizontal and vertical range than standard-performance extinguishers thanks to the 240 PSI operating pressure. This allows a professionally trained industrial firefighter to put out more fire faster than same-size standard performance types. High Performance Purple K extinguishers have a discharge range of 40-50 feet, considerably longer than the 15-21 feet range of standard same-size Amerex Purple K extinguishers. This allows operators to stand farther from the fire, keeping them better protected from hazards. High Performance Amerex extinguishers are safe to use from -65 °F to 120 °F.  High Performance extinguishers also have an exclusive 12-year warranty - unparalleled by any other extinguishers in the market.

    Fast Flow for greater discharge rate. High Performance Amerex extinguishers are available in Fast Flow and Compliance Flow models. Fast Flow extinguishers discharge at higher flow rates, which means they deliver more pounds of chemical per second. This makes FF models the safest and fastest extinguishers for knocking down three-dimensional and fast-moving fires that often occur in high-risk areas. Because of the higher discharge rate, they deplete faster than their Compliance Flow counterparts and standard-performance extinguishers. 

    User-friendly design. High Performance extinguishers feature extra-large stainless steel handles and ring pins with extra clearance for firefighters’ gloved hands. The pull pin has a large loop for easy pulling, and all units are bar-coded and printed with bi-lingual labels. Because these extinguishers have fewer parts, they require lower maintenance and repair costs over the entire life of a unit. Recharging a unit is inexpensive without cartridges to replace. 

    High-quality, all-weather construction. Amerex High Performance extinguishers feature an Amerex-exclusive, shot-blasted, galvanized steel cylinder that offers better corrosion resistance than paint finishes which tend to corrode when scratched or chipped. The cylinder is further protected by high-gloss polyester powder paint. They also have a chrome-plated brass valve which is heavier-duty than aluminum valves. The simple stored pressure design minimizes moving parts, which then minimizes chances of unnoticed tampering, clogged elbows or hoses, and other malfunctions that commonly occur with cartridge-operated extinguishers. All units have a molded vinyl ring at the bottom to add extra protection for the paint. 

    Extra-rugged, long-range, and equipped with high discharge rates, the Amerex High-Performance Fast Flow Purple K Fire Extinguishers (Class B:C) offer valuable fire protection in extremely demanding environments.
