Overview for Amerex 599 High Performance Compliance Flow Purple K Dry Chemical Fire Extinguisher (Class B:C)

The Amerex High-Performance Compliance Flow Purple K Dry Chemical Fire Extinguishers (Class B:C) are long-range, extra-rugged extinguishers that use a potassium bicarbonate agent (called Purple K) to stop Class B (flammable fuel/gas) and Class C (electrical equipment) fires. Purple K stops Class B fire by breaking the chain reaction and is also electrically non-conductive. Compared with standard-performance Purple K extinguishers, High Performance Compliance Flow Purple K extinguishers have a longer discharge range and more durable materials while complying with code requirements. The High Performance Compliance Flow Purple K Extinguisher is available in capacities of 13.2 lbs, 20 lbs, and 30 lbs. 

Highly effective Purple K agent. The Purple K agent is a specially fluidized and siliconized potassium bicarbonate dry chemical that is non-abrasive, is water-repellent, and does not produce toxic effects when used to extinguish fires. It’s also shown to be at least 4 to 5 times as effective in extinguishing fires as carbon dioxide and more than twice as effective as sodium bicarbonate. 

High performance for greater range. High Performance Amerex extinguishers have a greater horizontal and vertical range than standard-performance extinguishers thanks to the 240 PSI operating pressure. This allows a professionally trained industrial firefighter to put out more fire faster than same-size standard performance types. High Performance Purple K extinguishers have a discharge range of 40-50 feet, considerably longer than the 15-21 feet range of standard same-size Amerex Purple K extinguishers. This allows operators to stand farther from the fire, keeping them better protected from hazards. High Performance Amerex extinguishers are safe to use from -65 °F to 120 °F.

Compliance Flow for code compliance. High Performance Amerex extinguishers are available in Fast Flow and Compliance Flow models. While Fast Flow models have higher flow rates, which means they deliver more pounds of chemical per second and knock down fires faster, Compliance Flow models have a higher UL rating, lower flow rate, and extended discharge times which meet or exceed several code requirements. These models have 40-50% slower discharge rate than Fast Flow models. Compliance Flow extinguishers are ideal if complying with code requirements is a priority.

User-friendly design. High-Performance extinguishers feature extra-large stainless steel handles and ring pins with extra clearance for firefighters’ gloved hands. The pull pin has a large loop for easy pulling, and all units are bar-coded and printed with bi-lingual labels. Because these extinguishers have fewer parts, they require lower maintenance and repair costs over the entire life of a unit. Recharging a unit is inexpensive without cartridges to replace. 

High-quality, all-weather construction. Amerex High Performance extinguishers feature an Amerex-exclusive, shot-blasted, galvanized steel cylinder that offers better corrosion resistance than paint finishes which tend to corrode when scratched or chipped. The cylinder is further protected by high-gloss polyester powder paint. They also have a chrome-plated brass valve which is heavier-duty than aluminum valves. The simple stored pressure design minimizes moving parts, which then minimizes chances of unnoticed tampering, clogged elbows or hoses, and other malfunctions that commonly occur with cartridge-operated extinguishers. All units have a molded vinyl ring at the bottom to add extra protection for the paint. 

Extra-rugged and long-range, the Amerex High-Performance Compliance Flow Purple K Fire Extinguishers (Class B:C) offer valuable fire protection while still complying with code standards.
