Refilling and Charging Fire Extinguishers with Cold Fire
It's This Easy To Recharge Your Own Cold Fire Extinguisher.
Follow these simple steps below. You will need a 10 quart measuring bucket, air-compressor, funnel, Cold Fire and water! No more sending a fire extinguisher off to be serviced!
Loosen the extinguisher head and remove.
Add Funnel Then add (8) eight quarts of water to a 2.5 Extinguisher or (5) five quarts of water to a 1.5 Extinguisher .
Add (1) one quart (32oz.) concentrate of Cold Fire to the extinguisher.
Replace and hand tighten extinguisher head. Do not over-tighten.
Charge extinguisher using air-compressor to 125 PSI. Note: Always stand to the side as pictured above while charging fire extinguishers!
Pull the Pin at the top of the extinguisher. The pin releases a locking mechanism and will allow you to discharge the extinguisher.
Aim at the base of the fire, not the flames. This is important - in order to put out the fire, you must extinguish the fuel.
Squeeze the lever slowly. This will release the extinguishing agent in the extinguisher. If the handle is released, the discharge will stop.
Sweep from side to side. Using a sweeping motion, move the fire extinguisher back and forth until the fire is completely out. Operate the extinguisher from a safe distance, several feet away, and then move towards the fire once it starts to diminish. Be sure to read the instructions on your fire extinguisher - different fire extinguishers recommend operating them from different distances. Remember: Aim at the base of the fire, not at the flames!!!!
