Badger Fire Protection introduces their new Badger Advantage line of portable fire extinguishers specifically designed to exceed the nozzle flow rate of dry chemical for Class “B” (Flammable Liquid) Hazards as mandated by NFPA-10 and NFPA-30.
The 2007 edition of NFPA-10 “Portable Fire Extinguishers” and the 2008 edition of NFPA-30 “Flammable Liquid and Combustibles Code” calls for portable fire extinguishers with a minimum capacity of 10 pounds of dry chemical and a minimum nozzle flow rate of one pound per second be placed in the vicinity of pressurized flammable liquids or gas storage and dispensing areas as well as three dimensional or obstacle class “B” hazards.
Examples of workplaces where high flow portable extinguishers are required include gas stations, vehicle repair shops, fueling trucks, ships & vessels, aircraft hangers and ramps, off road equipment and vehicles, auto wreckers and propane filling facilities.
