NWS50 - BC Dry Powder

NWS50 BC Dry Powder

BC powder is based on Sodium bicarbonate. The extinguishing powder interferes with the chemical reactions that take place in the combustion zone, thus the flame ceases to exist and the fire is extinguished.

The powder is nonconductive and may be used in the presence of an electric current.

BC powder will extinguish Class B (flammable liquid) fires and Class C (flammable gas) fires.

Rough terrain double bogey wheels are available.
