Chemical extinguishing agents are the most commonly used extinguishing agents. They are generally stored under pressure as a liquid but revert to a gas when released. Most chemical gases are members of the hydrofluorocarbon family (HFC) and as such they fall outside restrictions imposed by the Montreal protocol on gases harmful to the ozone layer. HFC’s extinguish fires by interfering with the combustion chain reaction. They are suitable for use on live electrical equipment and in computer rooms. Chemical gases such as HFC227ea and FE25 both provide an extremely cost-effective means of fire suppression.
