Buckeye Model W-150 Halotron I Features:
The Buckeye W-150 has an agent capacity of 150lb. The extinguisher uses Halotron I as the agent which is ideal for Class A, Class B, and Class C fires.
The Buckeye W-150 has a UL Rating of 10-A:120B:C. The breakdown of the UL rating for the Buckeye Model W-150 would look like this:
A = Class A fire and the amount of chemicals/agent in the wheeled fire extinguisher equivalent to the amount of water the extinguisher holds equal to 1.25 gallons of water. The number 10 that precedes the class fire letter A is the number of equivalents. Therefore, the 10A equates to 12.5 gallons of water extinguishing capability (10 x 1.25 = 12.5).
B = The number 120 that precedes the letters B:C is the number of square feet that the extinguisher can cover or is able to extinguish. Therefore, a 120B equates to being able to extinguish 120 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 W-150 can be used on Class C fires and is designed to be used on fires that involve sensitive electrical equipment. The agent (Halotron I) is a clean agent and residue free.
