Fire extinguishers operate using a cartridge containing the extinguishing agent (water, foam, powder, CO2, etc.) in the master cylinder (it is not pressurized) and a separate gas cartridge containing highly pressurized CO2. When the handle is tightened, the pierced CO2 cartridge releases pressure into the master cylinder.
