Overview for Amerex 716 High Performance Z-Series Compliance Flow Purple K Fire Extinguisher (Class B:C)

With an industry-leading corrosion-resistant coating, fewer moving parts, and an affordable price, the Amerex Z-Series Fire Extinguishers are the ultimate corrosion-proof extinguishers with minimal repair and maintenance costs. The Amerex High-Performance Z-Series Compliance Flow Purple K Fire Extinguishers (Class B:C) are long-range, code-compliant extinguishers that use a potassium-bicarbonate-based dry chemical agent to extinguish Class B (flammable fuel/gas) and Class C (electrical equipment) fires. Available in capacities of 13.2, 20, and 30 lbs, each unit comes with an easy-to-install wall bracket.

Unmatched corrosion resistance. The Z-Series extinguishers are High Performance extinguishers with the new proprietary, zinc-enriched coating that resists damage, stress, and wear for up to 12 years in industrial environments with high amounts of corrosive chemicals, gases, and salt. The Z-Series product line is in fact the only UL verified corrosion-resistant extinguisher on the market. This makes it the best option for oil refineries, mining operations, agriculture, coastal and marine environments, and waste management sites. The all-metal valve, chrome-plated brass gauge guards, and protective rubber foot rings add to the durability of these extinguishers. With a 12-year warranty, the Z-Series extinguishers offer superior performance while keeping purchase and maintenance costs down. 

Highly effective Purple K agent. The Purple K agent is a specially fluidized and siliconized potassium bicarbonate dry chemical that effectively stops Class B fires by inhibiting the chemical chain reaction of fire. It’s also non-conductive, making it safe for fires involving electrical equipment. Purple K is non-abrasive and does not produce toxic effects when used to suppress 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 agents.

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. Because of the longer range, operators can stand farther from the fire to stay 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 Z-Series 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 resulting in faster fire knockdowns, Compliance Flow models have a higher UL rating, lower flow rate, and extended discharge times which comply with several code requirements. Compliance Flow extinguishers are ideal if complying with code requirements in a harsh industrial setting 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. 

With unmatched corrosion resistance, superior firefighting power, and low-maintenance design, the Amerex High Performance Z-Series Compliance Flow Purple K Fire Extinguishers (Class B:C) are ideal for fire suppression in corrosive environments while still complying with code standards.
