The Buckeye Model C-100-SE is one of two Carbon Dioxide wheeled fire extinguishers made by Buckeye. Both of which are sold by Online Safety Depot. Its lighter model frame, 40-foot hose, and well-balanced design allows for a single person to transport the unit through doorways, around corners and into hard to reach places to extinguish any Class B and/or Class C fires.
The Buckeye Model C-100-SE Is built with carbon steel cylinders and coated with a polyester epoxy topcoat that ensures its ability to withstand harsh environments and conditions that are needed for these types of fire extinguishers.
Wheeled fire extinguishers, such as the Buckeye Model C-100-SE, can be found in warehouses, commercial buildings, chemical plants, construction sites, storage units, refineries, shipboard use, research buildings, military bases, loading docks, and any other building, businesses or area where a more significant Class B and C fires may occur.
Buckeye Model C-100-SE Features:
The Buckeye Model C-100-SE has an agent capacity of 100lb. The extinguisher uses a carbon dioxide pressured gas as an agent which is ideal for Class B, and Class C fires.
The Buckeye Model C-100-SE has a UL Rating of 20B:C. The breakdown of the UL rating for the Buckeye Model C-100-SE would look like this:
A = The Buckeye Model C-100-SE is not suitable for Class A Fires
B = The number 20 that precedes the letters B:C is the number of square feet that the extinguisher can cover or is able to extinguish. Therefore, a 20B equates to being able to extinguish 20 square feet of a Class B fire.
C = The C in the equation means the agent is non-conductive and could also be used on a Class C fire.
Note: The Buckeye Model C-100-SE can be used on Class C fires, and is often used for fires that involve sensitive equipment.
