the  extinguisher consists of two principal parts.

  • A drawn steel cylinder containing the liquefied CO2 gas charged at the pressure of 744lbs per square inch at 600 F
  • A control valve which by turning on and off the extinguisher is operated and closed
  • In addition to this it is also provided with a high pressure tube and a horn.The horn is designed to stop the entertainment of air with CO2 and to reduce the velocity.
