    Default questions

    I'm doing homework for my class and little problem.

    My book that I ordered for a 2nd day air mail delivery is on its... well, 4th going on 5th day with no result and its due tomorrow.

    I was wondering if anyone here can possibly help with a couple of questions:


    What are the threee established criteria that must be met for a Class K extinguisher


    What are the other criteria items that extinguishers must meet in addition to the UL Rating?

    What anti-freeze agents are used in portable fire extinguishers?

    I'm sure you will find your answers in these websites. As a tip, we have a couple water cans on the outside of our trucks and in the winter we put a cup or so of anti-freeze (same as in your car) into the can. Worked for 15years so far.

    Good luck.
