WHERE TO USE
Amerex manufactures an extensive variety of hand portable and wheeled fire extinguishers, both “compliance”
(code required) and “specialty” types. “Specialty” type extinguishers are intended for use on particular types of hazards, so
careful attention should be made to locating them in close proximity to the specific hazard they are meant to protect. It is natural for a person to use the extinguisher located nearest to a fire. The most current issue of NFPA-10 should be consulted for
minimum recommended fire extinguisher types, placement and travel distances. Your local Amerex Fire Equipment Distributor
is professionally equipped to help you evaluate and implement these recommendations.
All “Picture Symbols” are detailed below and should be reviewed with all who might be expected to use a fire extinguisher.
Everyone should be familiar with these picture symbols which identify the types of fires on which they may be used. The International sign system diagonal red slash indicates a potential danger if the extinguisher is used on that particular type of fire.

HOW TO USE
All Amerex extinguishers are furnished with a detailed “Owners Manual” containing valuable information. The manual contains information
on the installation, use and maintenance of the extinguisher. The extinguisher nameplate (label) contains specific information on “HOW TO
USE” the particular extinguisher. The label instructions vary slightly according to type and size. All potential operators should be totally
familiar with the instructions on any extinguisher they might be required to use.
ALL AMEREX FIRE EXTINGUISHERS COMPLY WITH THE RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE NATIONAL FIRE PROTECTION ASSOCIATION AND ARE
TESTED AND RATED BY UNDERWRITERS LABORATORIES OR FACTORY MUTUAL SYSTEMS TO ANSI / UL STANDARDS. ALL EXTINGUISHER
NAMEPLATES CONTAIN THE NECESSARY HMIS INFORMATION TO COMPLY WITH NATIONAL AND LOCAL OSHA REQUIREMENTS.

Model 240 utilizes the cooling, soaking and penetrating effect of a
45-55 ft. stream of WATER. The 55 sec. discharge time makes it very
effective for inexperienced operators for use on Class A fires. Protect
from freezing by adding the Model 506 Loaded Stream/Anti-freeze
charge. In areas with a high level chloride content water it may be
corrosion protected by using the Model 507 charge.
Model 254 AFFF FOAM unique 6 liter size fills many requirements
for a lighter, more compact Class A:B extinguisher. Easy and effective
application with the patented spray nozzle. Apply to Class B liquid spills
to prevent ignition. Ideal for emergency first response vehicles.
Model 252 FFFP FOAM adds Class B fire fighting capability to the
Class A effectiveness of this extinguisher. The Alcohol Resistant fire
fighting agent is effective on fires in a wide variety of Class B materials such as alcohols, polar solvents, hydrocarbons and combinations
such as gasohol. Apply to a non-ignited Class B liquid spill and it will
seal the surface minimizing the chance of serious fire.
Model 250 AFFF FOAM Class A:B extinguisher. Easy and effective
application with air aspirated nozzle. Apply to Class B liquid spills to
prevent ignition. Ideal for emergency first response vehicles.

WET CHEMICAL extinguishers are the best restaurant kitchen
appliance hand portable fire extinguishers you can purchase.
Both have been tested and approved for the new Class K listing
by UL specifically for restaurant kitchen hazards. They contain a
special potassium acetate based, low PH agent developed for use
in pre-engineered restaurant kitchen systems. The recent trend to
more efficient cooking appliances and use of unsaturated cooking oils dictates the use of a hand portable fire extinguisher with
greater fire fighting capacity and cooling effect to combat these
very hot and difficult fires. Available in two sizes - 6 liter or 2½ gal.
with attractive stainless steel cylinders and easy to use hose and
spray application nozzle. The superior fire fighting capability of
the Wet Chemical agent is placed exactly where you aim it with
no chemical residue to clean up. The Models B260 and B262 are
the ideal “KITCHEN USE” fire extinguishers. They supplement
existing cooking equipment automatic system protection for an
extra margin of safety.

Class D fires. It keeps the operator’s hands away from the extreme heat and
prevents inhalation of toxic fumes caused by burning material. The easily
controlled, even discharge provides a non-dispursing application of the
agent. The applicator may be quickly detached to provide a straight stream
of chemical where greater range, a narrow discharge pattern or a lobbing
effect is required.

Vehicle Fire Suppression Systems:
Fire destroys billions of dollars of industrial equipment every year. It causes manpower losses, decreased property value, and, in many cases, human lives. Yet, companies fail to properly protect their workers and industrial
equipment from its damaging effects. That’s why there is Amerex.
Amerex is one of the nation’s leading manufacturers of fire fighting equipment with more engineering, manufacturing and quality control experience than anyone else in the industry. We can protect your equipment from
fire with a suppression system designed specifically for you.
Amerex Vehicle Fire Suppression Systems may make it easier to obtain insurance and also help you qualify for lower premiums. As the costs of
heavy duty vehicles rise, insurance rates escalate accordingly. Many insurance companies have recognized a reduction in claims paid out due
to the presence of a fixed vehicle fire suppression system. The Amerex Fire Suppression System will lower your fire risk, which can lower your
insurance premiums. The key phrase is “material change of risk.” Ask your insurance agent.
AMGADS III:
(Amerex Mobile Gas Detection System - 3rd Generation) gas monitoring system is a preengineered system designed to be utilized on any type of alternately fueled vehicle. The
system can be installed by the vehicle OEM or retrofitted. Its advanced technology can detect:
Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), Liquified Natural Gas (LNG), Propane (LPG), Hydrogen
and any other hydrocarbon fuel vapors.
SMALL BUS SYSTEM:
Amerex has once again revolutionalized the industry with the developement of a cost effecient fire suppression system specifically designed for small - front engine transit vehicles. The Amerex Small Vehicle System (SMVS) is designed specifically for use with
front engine vehicles such as Para-Transit, Airport Shuttle and other small front engine
applications. The SMVS kit includes all hardware components required for a complete turnkey Automatic Fire Suppression System. The electronics portion of the system is made
up of a Vehicle Operator Display with Manual Release Push Button, a wiring Interface
Module, and two Solid State Heat Detectors. The system is continuously supervised for
proper operation. If a trouble condition is present, the Operator Display indicates a diagnostic Service System LED. In the event of a Fire condition, Automatic Fire System
actuation occurs, an audible alarm sounds, a Fire LED illuminates and an internal relay
is energized. The Control Panel features visual LED system status indicators, a silenceable audible alarm. Backup power is supplied by a standard 9 volt alkaline battery. The
Fire Suppression System is FM approved. The electronics also carry CE Type approval.
SYSTEM COMPONENTS:

AVAILABLE TO AUTHORIZED DISTRIBUTORS ONLY
KP RESTAURANT SYSTEM:
The Amerex KP Restaurant System is a pre-engineered, wet chemical, stored-pressure type with a
fixed nozzle agent distribution network. The system is listed by Underwriter’s Laboratories, Inc., ULC
and tested to U.L. Standard 300. The system shall be designed, installed and maintained in accordance with: Amerex
Part No. 20150 “Design, Installation and Maintenance Manual”, N.F.P.A. 96, N.F.P.A. 17A, local codes and ordinances
by an Authorized Amerex KP Systems Distributor using factory trained personnel.
AGENT:
The system agent is Amerex KP liquid fire suppressant, a potassium acetate based solution that suppresses cooking
grease fires both through saponification and cooling. The agent has a pH of 9 or less and does not harm stainless steel
surfaces.
AGENT CYLINDER :
The agent cylinders are mild steel DOT 4BW 240 specification cylinders, tested to 480 PSI (3309 kPa). The agent cylinder/discharge valve assembly
is fully factory charged with Amerex KP liquid agent and pressurized to 240 PSI (1655 kPa).
MRM DETECTION:
The detection network uses a continuous cable run with detectors specifically listed for use with the Amerex KP System.
MECHANICAL RELEASE MODULE (MRM):
The mechanical release module is the spring-loaded type using a mechanical input and electrical, mechanical or pneumatic outputs. It is capable of
actuating from one to ten agent cylinder/valve assemblies using one nitrogen cylinder and is operated either automatically by the detection network or
manually by a remote manual pull station.
MRM LINEAR FUSIBLE LINK DETECTION:
The link to link system consists of four major components conduit connector, cable segment beginning and end, conduit box, and link to link cable segment. The link to link cable segment ensures that the links
are equally spaced at 24” center to center and yields continuous linear detection from end to end of the hood.
PNEUMATIC RELEASE MODULE (PRM):
The PRM offers superior detection by using a linear pneumatic detection system. The PRM detection system consists of the PRM, tubing and end of
line fitting. The tubing is pressurized through a small “accumulator” inside the enclosure, routed throughout the hazard area. When exposed to a fire
condition, the tubing ruptures, relieving all of the pressure in the tubing and accumulator thus firing the system using a nitrogen cylinder. The PRM
comes complete with enclosure, accumulator, end of line fitting, connector for mechanical manual pull, two SPDT microswitches, and “knock-outs”. It
is capable of actuating up to 10 cylinders and releasing 2 gas valves. Available in stainless or red enclosure.
ZONE DEFENSE RESTAURANT SYSTEM:
The Zone Defense Restaurant Fire Suppression System is a pre-engineered, wet chemical, stored-pressure type with a fixed nozzle
agent distribution network manufactured by Amerex Corporation. The system is listed by Underwriter’s Laboratories, Inc., ULC and
tested to UL Standard 300. The system shall be designed, installed and maintained in accordance with: Amerex Part No. 20150 “Design, Installation
and Maintenance Manual”, N.F.P.A. 96, N.F.P.A. 17A, local codes and ordinances by an Authorized Amerex Zone Defense Systems Distributor using
factory trained personnel. The Zone Defense system is fully self-contained and does not require electrical power or connection to either domestic
water supply or fire sprinkler supply lines.
1.
When a fire starts, either detection network will
automatically detect the fire or the manual pull
station can be used, releasing a low pH
agent throughout the hood, duct and onto the appliances.
2.
Either method of actuation will
interrupt gas or electrical power
to the appliances preceding
system discharge.
3.
The Amerex KP agent quickly extinguishes
the fire and cools the fuel while securing the
vapors with a smothering foam reaction.

AUTOMATIC INDUSTRIAL DRY CHEMICAL SYSTEM:
Our innovative fire extinguisher and automatic system designs have prevented damage and loss that would have
been caused by the ravages of fire. Costs associated with lost production time, equipment replacement and “business interruption” are a concern for any industry. In keeping with the Amerex tradition of concern for the customer, the
Amerex “IS” has been designed to offer the best fire protection available and we do it with less. Less equipment means less time to install, less
time to service and fewer nozzles to locate (and get in your way). All of this could translate into lower initial cost and lower maintenance cost over
the life of the system.
The Amerex “IS” system uses our exclusive ABC (Model 555) dry chemical. ABC dry chemical suppresses more fire, by
volume, than any other agent. ABC dry chemical has quick flame “knock-down” and can help to secure Class A fires against
re-ignition. Since many hazards involve a variety of fuel sources, our ABC dry chemical, with protection against Class A
(wood, paper, pulp), Class B (flammable liquids) and Class C (live electrical equipment) is the agent that is best suited for
most Industrial hazards.
Vehicle Paint Spray Booth v Total Flood v Open Front Paint Spray Booth v Local Application
DETECTION:
The Amerex “IS” industrial system incorporates an automatic detection system that will
operate in case of a fire anytime, 24/7, even if no one is present. As with the rest of
the “IS” system design and philosophy, the automatic fire detection system uses fewer
components which saves on installation and maintenance costs.

all electrical components to assist you in a simple and confident installation. Agent tanks are available in two sizes having a
diameter of ten inches making tank location in confined spaces easier. Tanks are charged with FM-200 in increments of two
pounds in a small tank or three pounds in a larger tank for a custom installation without unnecessary expense. Electrical actuators are used for system actuation and can be reset, reducing the number of components to be replaced during service after
discharge. The CPS system is designed to use schedule 40 pipe, giving you easy access to the materials you need to complete
the installation. Nozzles are available in three designs; corner, side wall, and center room for flexibilty in system installation to
protect those “challenging” areas. The Amerex CPS is monitored by an electrical control panel that has a battery back-up for 24
hour protection during power failure. Photoelectric smoke detectors are used for detection and are cross zoned to reduce the potential for unwanted
system discharge. A bell and horn/strobe device alarm when fire conditions are present. All electrical circuits are supervised and factory terminated.
