Wet Chemical Fire Extinguisher can be identified by the words printed across a yellow rectangle as “wet chemical”, also it has an extended applicator.
This has been created for extinguishing Class F fire; they are much effective as they are able to dissipate fires which is of high temperature: like fats and cooking oil etc.
The chemicals mixed in the canister dispels the fire, cools down the burning material, and form as soap solution which seals the burning surface and evicts re- ignition of fire.
They do discharge a high effective, gentle spray like L2 and M28 powder extinguishers to prevent burning oil/ fat from splashing on the user or spreading on surroundings.
The effective way is to spray it in slow circular motion. Individuals are supposed to clear the whole content onto the burning oil or fat, or else the fire may re- ignite.
NOTE: This type is not suitable for class B fires (which includes liquid) and can combat class A fires, but it is not as effective as other fire extinguishers.
