In general, metal fires are very dangerous due to their very high temperatures. Therefore, a fire class D was introduced specifically for metal fires. In order to extinguish these fires successfully, a special extinguishing powder was developed. In order not to whirl up the burning metal chips and thus spread the fire, the extinguishing agent is applied to the fire almost without pressure via a special applicator (trickle nozzle). In order not to endanger the user, the metal fire extinguisher is equipped with a lance.
The Jockel metal fire extinguishers are not only suitable for extinguishing magnesium or aluminium fires, but also for lithium fires, which can develop particularly high temperatures.
To extinguish metal fires, a special metal fire powder, which consists largely of salts, is applied to the burning metal. The extinguishing powder melts and thus encapsulates the fire under a largely air-impermeable fusion crust.
Thermal processes with extremely high temperatures make fighting metal fires a special challenge. Therefore, we recommend a separate instruction of the personnel.
