Overview for Amerex 496 50 lbs Wheeled Regular Dry Chemical Stored Pressure Fire Extinguisher (Class B:C)

The Amerex 50 lbs Wheeled Regular Dry Chemical Stored Pressure Fire Extinguisher (Class B:C) is a mobile, large-capacity extinguisher for facilities with extra-high risks of Class B (flammable liquid/gas) and C (electrical equipment) fires. It uses 50 lbs of Regular Dry Chemical, a siliconized sodium bicarbonate-based agent, to suppress as much as 160 square feet of Class B fires. The Amerex 496 is easy to transport using the wheeled carriage, making it ideal for large commercial and industrial spaces where mobile, high-capacity extinguishers are needed, such as oil refineries, construction sites, parking lots, and loading docks. 

Reliable fire suppressant: Regular dry chemical is a free-flowing and non-caking agent that knocks down fires by smothering or separating the fuel from the oxygen. It also interrupts the chemical reaction of the fire. When discharged, the agent of the Amerex 496 can reach 25 to 35 feet and last for 35 seconds. 

User-friendly: The stored pressure design of the Amerex 496 makes it very easy to operate. It has a compact design and easy-rolling 12.5” rubber wheels that make it easy to maneuver and transport in narrow hallways, doorways, and confined spaces by a single operator. It comes with a 25 ft hose for easy and safe agent application, and it is labeled with a large instruction pictogram for quick reference and a UL/ULC label with QR code.

Rugged build: Like all Amerex extinguishers, this extinguisher is made of high-quality materials that ensure long shelf life. The cylinder, carriage, and hose rack are made of heavy-duty stainless steel painted with a corrosion-resistant finish. It also has brass hose fittings, a live swivel on the discharge valve, and stainless-steel fasteners. It is safe to use at temperatures ranging from -40º to 120º.

With the quality you’d expect from Amerex, the Amerex 496 50 lbs Wheeled Regular Dry Chemical Stored Pressure Fire Extinguisher (Class B:C) provides excellent fire protection for extra-high hazard areas with single-person transport and operation.
