Specially created for hospital MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scanner rooms and nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometers (NMR's), this 2kg CO2 fire extinguisher is totally non-magnetic and anti-static with a special valve and fittings. Carbon dioxide fire extinguishers are, by far, the best extinguisher for use on electrical items and leave no mess or damage.
The magnetic field from an MRI scanner will stay for a long time after it is turned off so fire fighters cannot enter (unless they take their clothes off!) until long after the fire has done the damage. Fire fighters have been seriously injured after being sucked into scanners with something as simple as a belt buckle.
Suitable for all premises with live electrical equipment, computers, machines. Also good for small flamable liquid fires or for welding
Types of fire include Class B (flamable liquids) and fires involving live electrical equipment
Anticipated lifespan with indoor use and maintenance - over 10 years
