ANSUL Redline 灭火器 – The La测试 and Grea测试 in High Hazard Technology
Move over portable water-mist fire extinguishers, the newest line of fire extinguishers have arrived. ANSUL Redline, cartridge-operated portable fire extinguishers have hit the market. They bring with them the la测试 and grea测试 in high hazard technology. Water-mist fire extinguishers were the newest technology recently available in the fire equipment dealer world. 然而, 它们无法与南苏丹的红线相比, simply because they are not designed to extinguish the same classes of fires.
Water-mist extinguishers are specialty extinguishers designed to put our Class A or Class C fires using a fine, 去离子水中. The new ANSUL model is designed for high hazard occupancies, or in layperson’s speak – dangerous situations that are likely to have hotter, 更具破坏性的火灾. A superior fire extinguisher if you work in the high hazard fields of aviation, 化学, 矿业, 石油和天然气, 石化, 或发电. ANSUL Redline fire extinguishers are built tougher for these situations. Instead of steel or aluminum shells, they use carbon steel. 它们也被设计成在现场更好的支撑. ANSUL uses a special polyester powder paint to ensure that the extinguishers will resist cracking and corrosion. 说句公道话，我们不能把苹果和橘子作比较. So instead of comparing this line of fire extinguishers to another brand, 让我们看看他们和ANSUL哨兵的对比.
How do ANSUL Redline extinguishers compare to the multipurpose ABC extinguishers? 让我们来看看:

如果你经营的是有轻微占用风险的生意, 您将不需要ANSUL的红线灭火器. They have been designed to meet special needs in the fire protection industry. If you do operate a high hazard occupancy business, you are in luck. You’ve probably noticed that your extinguisher has some wear and tear. This new design incorporates a special powder coating to keep it in top shape. 这样可以延长灭火器的使用寿命. 根据国家消防协会(NFPA 10.8.4.2), portable fire extinguishers must be condemned when on or more of the follow occur:
-repairs by soldering, welding, brazing, or use of the patching compounds
-where corrosion has caused pitting under a removable nameplate or name band assembly
-where the depth of a dent exceeds 1/10 of the grea测试 dimension of the dent, 若不在焊缝处, 或超过1/4英寸，如果凹陷包括焊缝
-任何局部或一般的腐蚀, 削减, 沟, or dings have removed more than 10 percent of the minimum cylinder wall thickness
This means that if your extinguisher is damaged, you cannot repair it. It also means you can’t cover the corrosion with a stick, and if it is dented or cut you may need to dispose of it. All of these things could happen under normal circumstances. The chances of them happening in a high hazard area are increased. It was a smart move by ANSUL to create a different coating system.
If the bells and whistles weren’t enough, additional protection can be purchased through upgrades. These are not standard and need to be specifically ordered or mentioned when purchasing. They allow the consumer to further customize the extinguisher to their fire safety needs.
This line of portable fire extinguishers includes a corrosion-resistant model. The exterior of this model receives the standard coating treatment, 再在外壳上涂上一层厚厚的锌基涂层. The other metal pieces of the extinguisher are black anodizes for additional protection. The cartridge is painted using epoxy to resist damage. While designed for high hazard, these might be a plus for business owners on the beach. The salty area of 坦帕 Bay beaches corrodes regular fire extinguishers quite quickly.
用一个红色把手来区分它们. They push the extinguishing 化学 out more quickly than regular flow extinguishers. These would work well for three-dimensional fires, pressure fires, and obstacle hazard fires. They would also work on Class B and C fires – flammable/combustible liquid fires and electrical fires.
Many people don’t know that most fire extinguishers are rated for use from 40 to 140 degrees Fahrenheit. 在寒冷地区, certain fire extinguishers can use an anti-freeze solution to further protect from lower temperatures. These newer ANSUL models are rated for use at temperatures as low as -65 degrees Fahrenheit. Although – if a commercial cooler or refrigerator space were large enough to merit an extinguisher, 这将是一个很好的选择.
