Carbon Dioxide Fire Extinguishers

The popular Firechief CO2 extinguisher range includes a variety of options and carbon dioxide extinguishers do not leave a residue after the fire is out as some extinguishers do.

Carbon dioxide extinguishers should NOT be used in confined spaces where there is danger that fumes may be inhaled. When using a C02 extinguisher, discharge and then walk away from the area to avoid asphyxiation.

Which is correct – C02 or CO2?

Carbon dioxide is often spoken about using its chemical formula name of CO2 which is sometimes spelt with an 0 instead of a capital O within the C02 fire extinguisher setting; we would say that the correct version is CO2 for the oxygen atoms in the carbon dioxide molecules.
