Element Fire Extinguishers


Recommended Posts

Neat find, can you send your Santa to Western NC? 😄

Here is a link to more info and prices. I like that it has pretty solid reviews, leaves no residue, is fairly compact and no expiration date. https://elementfire.com/collections/allproducts

I just did the same.  One for each truck, one for the Ollie or Camper.

I have an Element 50 as well as two traditional fire extinguishers in the truck. On other forums, I've seen recent comments questioning the value of the Element fire extinguishers. I have zero actual use experience, but just wanted to let folks know it may or may not be as effective as expected. Here are a couple of failure to extinguish videos posted:

20:15 into this video for the Element

 

And lastly, this notice by California State Fire Marshall )may have more to do with documentation thatn actual effectiveness.)

Better than nothing, but I'm not going to replace a traditional fire extinguisher with an Element.

No doubt, not effective on a fully engulfed fire. It is imperative one understands the limitations of these and proper use. Unlike conventional extinguishers, Element is meant to remove one leg of the fire triangle, oxygen, and not meant to be aimed at the ‘source’, as demonstrated in the featured videos.

Actually, most of them do that. Carbon dioxide and foam extinguishers also remove the oxygen. Water extinguishers remove the heat. The ABC dry chem extinguishers work by interfering with the chemical reaction itself (the fourth side of the now-called "fire tetrahedron").

We now carry both traditional and Element fire extinguishers.  What I like about the Element is the long burn time, and the small size that makes it handy to store (and grab) in the cab of the TV.  Prior to buying, I spoke with my daughter  who recently retired as a Fire Marshal from a large Oregon fire district.  She keeps them in her vehicles.

Here's a really good video, made by a firefighter, that tests and goes over proper use of multiple fire extinguisher types - including the Element:

I don't think the Element is a replacement for a regular fire extinguisher, but it's another tool in your arsenal - like the First Alert spray we have under our bed rails - that might be helpful because of its proximity when you need it.

Bingo! With early detection of a fire the Element will likely suffice, but if a fire is more involved then another type of extinguisher would be required. I like the fact that the Element will not necessitate a HazMat cleanup following its’ use. I have firsthand knowledge of an incident wherein a fire extinguisher somehow accidentally discharged inside a vehicle and it had to salvaged due to the high expense of a cleanup.
