SENTRY CO2 Extinguishers

  • These Ansul Sentry carbon dioxide extinguishers protect areas where class B (flammable liquids and gases) or Class C (energized electrical equipment) fires could occur. They may be used indoors where winds and drafts do not affect dischage or where a clean extinguishing agent is required. Typical applications include laboratories and electronic equipment.

    Sentry carbon dioxide extinguishers are available in one-piece, powder-coated steel or lightweight aluminum shells in capacities of 5 lb (2.27 kg), 10 lb (4.54 kg), 15 lb (6.80 kg) and 20 lb (9.07 kg).The steel shell option features a fluted-base design to resist corrosion and help prolong service life while the aluminum version is sturdy and lightweight. The extinguishers are easy to operate and maintain while offering a six-year limited warranty from the date of delivery. A wall hanger hook is included with each; with the optional heavy-duty vehicle bracket, (sold separately) the 5, 10 and 15 lb models are USCG approved for marine use. All models are UL listed and all aluminum models are also ULC listed.
