How CO2 fire extinguishers work:
CO2 fire extinguishers discharge CO2 gas, also known as carbon dioxide. This is stored in the extinguisher as a liquid, and the gas is created under pressure when the handle of the extinguisher is squeezed. This causes the CO2 gas to emerge at great speed, this is why they are not recommended for chip pan fires – they could blast the flames into surrounding areas. Unlike water and foam extinguishers, CO2 Extinguishers do not work by cooling the fire, so are ineffective on fires involving flammable solids. CO2 extinguisher work by replacing oxygen surrounding the flames with carbon dioxide, meaning the fire can no longer burn.
