The Rusoh® Eliminator® fire extinguisher is designed for self-service. It eliminates the need for the specially trained and equipped licensed technician required for traditional extinguishers. That need is based on two concerns: 1) maintaining the stored pressure in the extinguisher at the 185-205 psi levels required to fight a fire and 2) maintaining the otherwise inaccessible agent chemical inside the extinguisher in a fluffed (fluid) state. Concern 1: Correct Pressure Unlike traditional pressure extinguishers, The Rusoh® Eliminator® fire extinguisher’s contents are not stored under pressure. The Rusoh® Eliminator® is only pressurized when you need it: to fight a fire. The source of the pressure is an expellant cartridge you can check with ease and even replace yourself. It simply screws in place.
Concern 2: Fluffed Agent Maintaining the agent chemical inside the extinguisher in a fluid state is critical for both the Rusoh® Eliminator® and standard extinguishers. Fine particles in the chemical naturally compact and become dense, potentially making discharge ineffective and putting you and your business at risk.
Regulations for a standard extinguisher require a trained technician to periodically tear down extinguishers. The technician depressurizes the extinguisher, empties and replaces the chemical agent, and then re-pressurizes the unit.
In contrast, the Rusoh® Eliminator® extinguisher’s chemical agent is fully accessible to the user via the patented Rusoh® fluffing wheel located at the bottom of the extinguisher. The Rusoh® wheel eliminates the need for a technician. By periodically turning the fluffing wheel, you can yourself maintain the powder in a fluid state. The Rusoh® fluffing wheel is connected to an auger that fluffs the chemical, ensuring that the agent will flow freely when needed to put out a fire.
