Oils & fats burn at relatively higher temp. Once they catch fire, extinguishment is very difficult due to
- High heat load
- Splashing & spreading of oil on water/foam application
- Steam so formed, occupies very high volume compared to water, leading to explosion.
KV- LITE CLASS K is a specially formulated, ready to use extinguishant, for oil & fat fires. It is formulated with speciality organic salts, stabilizers & preservatives. The formulation gives very satisfactory performance at any temperature. It is an efficient fire-extinguishing agent for grease related fires, cooking appliances, deep fat fryers, broilers, hoods and duct works.
KV- LITE CLASS K can be used with specially designed portable extinguisher and compressed air foam systems. The performance depends on the type of application method.
KV- LITE CLASS K is a ready to use extinguishing agent and hence must not be diluted. It is to be used directly during charging of the system.
