What fires can dry chemical powder fire extinguishers be used on?

ABE Type :-

Class A Fires – paper, cardboard, wood, fabrics, people etc.
Class B Fires – flammable liquid fires, petrol, deisel, oil etc
Class E Fires – electrical fires, computers, photocopiers, switchboards etc

BE Type:-

Class B Fires – flammable liquid fires, petrol, deisel, oil etc
Class E Fires – electrical fires, computers, photocopiers, switchboards etc
Class F Fires – although not included in the rating the BE type is capable of extinguishing cooking oil fires
Both types of dry chemical powder fire extinguishers can be used on flammable gas fires, however evaluate the situation carefully before doing this, as burning gas eliminates the gas, whereas if the fire is extinguished, the gas can continue to leak, build up and become a potential bomb if ignition is triggered.

How do dry chemicial powder fire extinguishers work?
All fire extinguishers work by removing one or more elements of the fire triangle – heat, fuel and oxygen

The dry chemical powder use in most ABE fire extinguishers is called monoammonium phosphate. This powder has the ability to melt and flow once heated which allows it to coat the fuel and extinguish the fire especially class A and E fires. With class B fires the powder smothers the surface of the fire and stops the vapour (fuel) escaping and therefore extinguishing the fire straight away. Flammable liquid fires do not generally store much heat in the fuel source, therefore the powder will not normally melt.

BE type dry chemical powder extinguishers differ in that they do not melt onto the fuel surface and are therefore ineffective against class A fires giving them a BE rating.
