direct pressure
Explicación:
These Amerex commercial Direct Pressure extinguishers utilize a 23 ft3 nitrogen cylinder with a “quick opening brass valve” to pressurize and completely discharge the agent cylinder. The compact size and 16" semi-pneumatic tires allow easy maneuvering and operation by one person, through narrow doorways and aisles. A 4" stainless steel fill opening with rugged chrome plated brass cap makes servicing easier. For large hazards choose the 300 lb. ABC or Purple K or 350 lb. Regular Direct Pressure extinguishers with a “quick opening” 55 ft3 nitrogen cylinder. They provide quality and economical fire protection, large volume capacity for extra high hazard areas with single person transport and operation. The 36" X 6" wide steel wheels make movement possible in sandy or soft soil.

125 lb. ABC & Purple K and 150 lb. Regular Direct Pressure extinguishers utilize a 23 ft3 nitrogen cylinder with a “quick opening valve” to pressurize and completely discharge the agent cylinder. The compact size and 16" semi-pneumatic tires allow easy maneuvering and operation by one person, through narrow doorways and aisles.

In terms of design, a distinction can be made between fire extinguishers under stored pressure (where gas is placed directly in the containers) and extinguishers with a cylinder (where gas is placed in a cylinder within the container).

DRY CHEMICAL - extinguishers are either stored-pressure models or cartridge-operated models. The stored-pressure models have a lever above the handle for operation. The cartridge-operated models require two steps: Depress the cartridge lever, and then squeeze the nozzle at the end of the hose. The dry chemicals leave a residue that must be cleaned up after use.

As far as I can see, 'direct pressure' is also known as 'stored pressure'. I'm not an expert in fire extinguishers, though I had a couple for over 20 years that used to be serviced every year and emptied and refilled ('retimbrado') evey five years.

Stored Pressure Fire Extinguishers
Stored pressure fire extinguishers contain the extinguisher agent (water, powder, foam, CO2, etc.) and the pressurising gas (dry air or oxygen-free nitrogen) in the same cylinder.

Cartridge operated Extinguishers
Cartridge operated extinguishers contain the extinguisher agent (water, foam, powder, CO2 etc.) in the main cylinder (this is not pressurised) and a seperate gas cartridge containing highly pressurised CO2. Once the handle is squeezed the CO2 cartridge is pierced releasing the pressure into the main cylinder.

I've been reading about fire extinguisher mechanisms and I think 'stored pressure' is the right term. I'm sure it means that they're immediately ready for use by pressing a handle and lever. 'Cartridge operated extinguishers contain the expellant gas in a separate cartridge that is punctured prior to discharge, exposing the propellant to the extinguishing agent'.

Jane, thank you for the points. I have to go into town later and out of interest I'll ask the person who used to 'look after' my fire extinguishers what it could mean.

Usuario que pregunta: Thanks Helen, this looks very tempting.

Usuario que pregunta: Thank you Helena. I used this but did add a note asking for clarification as well.

Usuario que pregunta: That would be great. I've moved on to scaffolding now and did pop over the road to ask some scaffolders to confirm some of the vocab!
