Water fire extinguisher

About water fire extinguisher

The water fire extinguisher is one of the simplest and the earliest type of fire extinguisher that are available in the market. A steady jet of water is discharged from this fire extinguisher over the source of the flames lowering down the temperature of the burning material below the point of ignition. These fire extinguishers are commonly of two types. The first one is the air pressured fire extinguisher. In this the air pressure discharges the water from the container to the flames. The water mist spray fire extinguisher is the second type of fire extinguisher which contains pressurized nitrogen mixed with water which is spread as tiny droplets or a mist instead of shooting a strong jet of water. These types of fire extinguishers are most commonly used in cramped and small places because they are less messy than any other type of fire extinguisher.
