The P50 is the most technologically advanced fire extinguisher on the market. Britannia’s unique P50 foam and powder extinguishers will reduce the number of extinguishers required in your premises as they cover multiple risks. This also helps to avoid confusion in a panic situation.
There are four types of P50 extinguisher. Foam, Powder, F Class (wet chemicals) and Monnex. High fire ratings give very advanced fire protection covering all risks.
P50 BSX ASX Foam
The Fluro Factant Free Foam fire extinguisher has excellent fire fighting capabilities, making it effective on Class A materials, wood, paper and textiles, and Class B fires fuelled by paints, solvents, oils and petrochemical products. The unit has also passed the EN 3 test for use on live electrical equipment up to 1,000V at a distance of 1m. It has an operational temperature range from +5°C to +60°C. Frost protection to -5°C is available.
P50 F Class
The formulation of the chemical in this F Class extinguisher is based on nitrogenated derivatives and ammonium salts of phosphoric acid and hydrocarbon and fluorinated surfactants in aqueous solution. The extinguisher medium forms a seal on the surface, preventing re-ignition.
P50 ABC40 Powder
The ABC40 Powder fire extinguisher is designed to be installed in areas where there are a variety of fire hazards and where fast extinguishing is required. ABC40 Powder fire extinguishers can tackle fires on Class A materials, wood, paper and textiles, Class B fires, those fuelled by oils, paints, solvents, and petrochemical products, as well as on Class C flammable gas fires. It is safe to use on live electrical equipment up to 1,000 volts at a distance of 1m. It has an operational temperature range from -20°C to +60°C.
Monnex is based on a Potassium bicarbonate-urea complex. The extinguishing powder interferes with the chemical reactions and the fire is extinguished. In the combustion zone, Monnex power explodes, breaking into smaller particles which dramatically increases the surface area o the powder. Monnex Powder is safe to use on live electrical equipment up to 1,000 volts at a distance of 1m and will extinguish Class B flammable liquids fire and Class C flammable gas fires. It has an operational temperature range from -20°C to +60°C.
Benefits of the P50
The P50 extinguisher range represents a new and improved generation of fire extinguishers. With massive cost saving benefits, reduced weight, and lower environmental impact, P50 extinguishers provide the first truly sustainable option whilst also offering enhanced performance and financial benefits.
