How does CO2 Fire Extinguisher works?
The CO2 type fire extinguisher contains carbon dioxide in liquid form, and when the extinguisher lets off, the liquid is released into the air defusing like oxygen that the fire feeds on and disables the fire's ability to spread. The CO2 fire extinguisher is an effective fire-fighting equipment to put out fires and prevents any fire tragedy. It’s possible because of the lack of oxygen and the ice-cold temperature of the CO2 when released from the extinguisher.
