CO2 fire extinguisher is a type of cylinder containing CO2 - 790 degrees Celsius compressed with high pressure, portable inside. They are used to extinguish small fires when they first arise such as liquid and solid fires. It can be especially effective against chat rooms in basements, closed rooms or electric chat rooms.

When you detect a new fire, you need to immediately carry a CO2 fire extinguisher and follow these steps: One hand holds the spray speaker and points it at the fire source at a distance of at least 0.5m, with the other hand, open the lock. tank valve. When the tank valve is opened, thanks to the pressure difference, the liquid CO2 gas in the tank will escape through the spray speaker system and diving tube, then turn into gaseous snow with a coldness of up to -790 degrees Celsius. This cooling when encountering a fire can help reduce the concentration of the vapor mixture when burning, thereby cooling the fire area and extinguishing the fire quite effectively.
