Fire Stryker

Ran across the Fire Stryker fire extinguisher on the web. Made is South Africa. It burns potassium nitrate which takes the oxygen out of the air at the base of the fire. Has anyone seen something similar in the US? Seems liked it would be easier to carry and not solidify like a standard bottle type extinguisher.

Did you watch Fire Stryker vid? Not the same product at all.

My bad.... I should have said a similar product in operation. IMO cold fire looks like a better product. Lots of LE personnel using it for some years now. I've only used Halon which isn't considered enviro-safe these days.

What seems very promising is that both claim a low level of residue after use. A normal fire extinguisher can leave a very corrosive residue behind, and is hell on a engine after a fire.

I have the cold fire one in my ambo. Best part is it doesn't dry out like the regular extinguishers where the powder packs at the bottom. I can also recharge it at home or on the road. Basically it's kinda water with soap. The soap helps the water to stick on material longer instead of just falling off. As such it's very safe and you can spray it on your body without issues. The rechargeable solution is $5 or so and water is still free

Happy new year guys!

Cheers
David

That's what I like about both products as well. Having an extinguisher in your vehicle that you know will work when you need it is important.

Edit: Took the fire extinguisher at our church for its annual inspection. While they were working on it I asked the technician about FEs in vehicles. He had never heard of the powder inside packing solid after long periods of riding in a car. It sounded like he did not believe it.

Well according to the fire extinguisher tech that serves our company, they have seen this (packing) in boats and suggest mounting it sideways. My bass boat in choppy water feels like my van on washboard. Could also be a wives tale.
