    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Applies to metal-bodied portable fire extinguishers of the foam type, in which the foam is expelled by pressure generated as a result of chemical reaction between solutions in the extinguisher.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This specification applies to metal-bodied portable fire extinguishers of the foam type, in which the foam is expelled by pressure generated as a result of chemical reaction between solutions in the extinguisher. It refers to materials, method of manufacture and performance of the extinguisher.NOTE: The requirements for turnover type extinguishers are retained in this specification solely to facilitate parts replacement as it is intended that these types should be phased out of manufacture not later than 1 January 1980.
