When ampoule is thrown at the fires the chemical will disperse over the
. At the same time, the extinguishing chemicals would generate
. Waterevaporation would cool down the temperature of combustibles (cooling effectiveness) while ammonium gas would create a
effect that restrains the burningchain reaction. At the same time, one of the main ingredients forFIRE-117 and
produced by heat would suffocate oxygen and restrain combustibles from burning (cutting oxygen).
Why is FIRE-117 safe to use?
Chemical Safety (Environmental Friendly)
The extinguishing liquid is of weak alkalinity. It is made of
and it uses themost ideal, safe
which are authorized as national and officially approved items. The extinguishing agent could be thrown away as sewage and it isharmless to the environment.

Use 6% dilution with ultra-pure water as a sample for test. This test report was issued by Chemicals Evaluation & Research Institute, Japan.
and ammonium gas are very effective in the early stage of fire.The
numerical value of carbonic gas and ammonia gas is lower than the permissible figures,permitted by Labor Safety Standard, Japan. The gas smells a little of ammonia, but it isharmless on human body

fire extinguishers should be conspicuously located where they can beaccessible easily and quickly in case of an emergency. It is recommended that to storethe ampoule in the plastic casing that mounted on the wall approximately 2-3 metersfrom the area that poses a potential fire hazard (for instant cooking stove) otherwise you
would not be able to grab it in time.
