How they work

Dry chemical fire extinguishers are by far the most common fire extinguishers in the home. They can handle all three types of fires you would find in a kitchen or workshop. The idea behind a dry chemical fire extinguisher is to blanket the fuel with an inert solid. A dry chemical extinguisher sprays a very fine powder of sodium bicarbonate , potassium bicarbonate, or monoammonium phosphate. These solids coat the fuel and smother the fire.
