Class A fires: This is a category of fire that results from the burning of wood, glass fiber, furnishing, and upholsteries. When the contents from the type of fire extinguishers are sprayed on the fire, it smoothers the fire by cutting down the heat factor from the fire triangle. The foam that is formed from these extinguishers separates the oxygen part from the fire.
Class B fires: This is a category of fire that occurs from the burning of fluids like paints, fuels, lubricating oils, cooking oils, and alike.
Mechanical Foam: It is a hydrolyzed protein material made up of closely formed bubbles with water retention properties and stability. It also can float on even the lightest flammable liquid, making for the best-in-class extinguishing agent for all types of flammable liquid fires. It also works by cooling the temperature of the burned items and creates a protective later holding the water in and creates resistance from being overpowered by fuels of a fire.
There are multiple advantages of using the Mechanical Foam Type Fire Extinguishers. First and foremost, the main advantage is that the foam is non-toxic and does not damage any materials. In addition to it, it works towards putting off the fire in a progressive way; also ensuring re-ignition of the flammable liquid is never possible. Since it works by forming a layer over the burning materials, it cuts off the oxygen supply into the fire, this ensures that the burning liquid or the material will slowly cool down and does not have the heat to re-ignite again.
