The PRX Agent Solution
K-GUARD extinguishers contain
PRX Liquid Fire Suppressant, a specially formulated, aqueous solution of
inorganic salts In addition to knocking down the flame and forming a
vapor securing blanket, PRX agent provides a cooling effect that aids in
the extinguishing and securing process For these reasons, Ansul uses
this same liquid agent in both our K-GUARD extinguishers and our PIRANHA
restaurant fire suppression systems.
