Water & Wet Chemical Extinguishers

A Water Fire Extinguisher fights fires that are classified as Class A. They are commonly called APW (Air Pressurized Water). This type uses a steady stream of water to put out fires from wood, paper, cloth, trash and plastics.   You can think of this type of extinguisher as a big squirting water gun.   They contain water and pressurized normal air that will cool the fire. An APW puts out the fire by taking away the heat by absorption.  They weigh about 25 pounds when full and stand about two feet tall.  You will recognize them because of their silver color.  They are simple to use and relatively easy to clean up after the fire.

A Wet Chemical Fire Extinguisher fights commercial kitchen fires & designed to supplement commercial fire suppression systems.  These are easy to use and very effective in fighting cooking fires.
