Carbon Dioxide Fire Extinguishers Carbon dioxide fire extinguishers
in the Navy are most often used to extinguish fires in engine rooms and various electrical equipment. Carbon dioxide, as a fire extinguishing material, has an advantage over others in that it does not damage expensive equipment, and also does not leave marks or stains on the surface of various materials.
It is convenient to store them in a vessel in closed rooms or open spaces, except in areas with direct sunlight or at temperatures above 50°C. In small amounts, carbon dioxide is not harmful to human health, however, with an increase in concentration, especially in closed rooms, it can lead to detrimental effects on the respiratory system. Therefore, the use of more than two carbon dioxide fire extinguishers in closed compartments is prohibited.
When it comes out of the cylinder, carbon dioxide crystallizes, covers the hot spot and blocks the access of oxygen. For a more effective influence on the flame, the distance to the ignition should be as short as possible. With a reduction in the distance, the risk for a person involved in firefighting increases, so you should carefully approach the choice of Fire fighter's equipment and outfit
