Caption: Wet chemical fire extinguisher. Pressurized cylinder containing potassium acetate for use in extinguishing a fire. The origins of a fire determine the extinguisher to use. This extinguisher is suitable for use on deep-fat fryers, with the potassium acetate cooling the burning oil and then forming a foam layer that smothers the fire. This fire extinguisher type only works on fat, not on flammable liquids such as petrol. This fire extinguisher is labelled with UK and European safety standard symbols, and is marked for use on Class A and F fires. For fire extinguisher types, see C014/6960 to C014/6965.
