ANSUL® RED LINE cartridge-operated extinguishers are premium firefighting units preferred by safety directors in high fire-risk industries. Cartridge operated means increased reliability, on-the-spot recharge and ease of service. Typical applications… fuel loading racks, heavy construction sites, dip tanks, oil pumping stations, mining equipment, paint lockers, trucks and buses, fuel storage rooms, production lines, and others.

 

 

Wheeled extinguishers are designed to protect high fire-risk areas where the potential for large fires exists. These heavy duty units have greater extinguishing agent capacities than portable extinguishers, yet are highly mobile and can be fully operated by just one person. Available with dry chemical, foam, carbon dioxide, and special dry powders. Typical applications… airports, loading docks, steel mills, paint spray booths, offshore platforms, heavy manufacturing areas and others.
