Cartridge-Operated Fire Extinguishers

Cartridge-operated fire extinguishers are rechargeable, high-quality, durable extinguishers ideal for use in harsh environments. Unlike a traditional stored pressure extinguisher, which has the agent and pressure mixed in the same container inside the extinguisher, a cartridge-operated extinguisher has the powder/agent inside and a separate pressure cartridge outside the extinguisher that must be activated to pressurize the extinguisher. These units are used primarily in construction and heavy equipment environments and protect areas that house chemical storage, marinas, spray paint booths and welding.

Common Applications:

  • Heavy construction sites
  • Oil pumping stations
  • Mining equipment
