Class D fire extinguishers are specifically designed for combustible metal fires. Fires involving metals such as magnesium, sodium, potassium and sodium-potassium alloys are extinguishable with the Class D extinguisher. This is ideal for a metal shop and other places where metals are heated.

There are two models to choose from.

Model 570

Contains a special blended Sodium Chloride based dry powder extinguishing agent. Heat from the fire causes it to cake and form a crust excluding air and dissipating heat from burning metal. Metals fires involving magnesium, sodium, potassium and sodium-potassium alloys can be extinguished with this fire extinguisher. 

Model 571

Contains a copper extinguishing agent specially developed by the U.S.. Navy for fighting lithium and lithium alloy fires. The copper compound smothers the fire and provides an excellent heat sink for dissipating heat. Copper powder has been found to be superior to all others known fire extinguisher agents for lithium. 

Sizes Available: 9.0kg with hose and wall bracket
