Description : Copper-coloured cylinder with a domed top. A black, red, and brass-coloured label covers much of one side of the cylinder. At the top of the cylinder is a red metal wheel/valve. At one side, a curved metal piece connects a fibre hose to the domed shoulder of the cylinder. A metal nozzle is at the opposite end of the hose.
Commentaires : This fire extinguisher contained a small bottle or tube sitting in a rack at the top of the extinguisher. This bottle would have held acid. When the extinguisher was turned upside down, the contents of the bottle would mix with the sodium bicarbonate solution held in the rest of the extinguisher, creating pressure and foam to extinguish the fire. Foam fire extinguishers, like this one, are effective on flammable liquids, such as oils, solvents, and paints, as well as ordinary combustibles, such as wood or paper. The foam floats on top of the burning liquid, breaking the interaction between the flames and the fuel. The extinguisher required recharging on a yearly basis. This particular extinguisher was used in the work station known as the Brown House. It was then salvaged by the museum when the Brown House was torn down. The Brown House was used for carpentry, and for the general maintenance work and repairs that were required for upkeep of the various mission buildings.
Fonctions : This extinguisher was used for putting out fires.
