Target B270-B272

Target # 1

Description Imagine the problems with theft, vandalism, and clean up caused by dry chemical extinguishers in public schools. Have you thought about how some of the problems can be solved by the Models B270NM and 272NM? The spray wand takes the “fun” out of using it as a very large water pistol. It makes less […]

Description In Amerex Tech Tip #5 we discussed the problems associated with using ABC Dry Chemical on these chemicals. If you read the Tech Tip (enclosed) you will also see that in most cases WATER SPRAY is the preferred agent. Until the advent of the Model 272, a regular water extinguisher such as our Model […]

Description Similar to problems in hospitals, these facilities are concerned about respiratory problems and fire extinguisher training.

Description In all of the sales literature you have seen and in previous TARGET sheets, you have heard us explain why the Model 270/272/B270NM/B272NM is the PREFERRED AGENT/EXTINGUISHER COMBINATION for health care facilities and hospitals.

Target # 9

Description The Model 272 is designed to make the most efficient use of water. Smaller droplet sizes in the discharge pattern mean that the water will absorb more BTU’s (British Thermal Units) than a solid stream, cooling the fire faster. For years, people have been instructed to put their finger over the nozzle of our […]

Description In “Target” #9 we talked about the more efficient use of water that is incorporated into the design of the Model 272. Another application for the Model 272 and its fine spray pattern is large laundry facilities. Historically, large laundry facilities have a problem with lint fires occurring in the drying process. These fires […]

Target # 11

Description No health department will allow the use of food that has had either dry chemical or halon fire extinguisher agent discharged onto it.
