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.Ammonium Phosphate - dry chemical that can be used on Class A, B, and C fires, but should never be used on a fire in a commercial grease fryer because of the possibility of reflash and because it will render the fryer's automatic fire-protection system less effective.Sodium Bicarbonate - dry chemical, suitable for fighting Class B and C fires, is preferred over other dry-chemical extinguishers for fighting grease fires. Where provided, always use the extinguishing system first. This also shuts off the heat to the appliance.Potassium Bicarbonate, urea-base potassium bicarbonate, and potassium chloride - dry chemical are more effective and use less agent than sodium bicarbonate on the same fire.Foam (or AFFF and FFFP) extinguishers - coats the surface of a burning flammable liquid with a chemical foam.
