Wow, that is about 5.5 Metric Tonnes of Dry Chemical. Equals 12, 125 pounds of powder minimum.

Quite something to bring to a fire.

Thanks again, for all these interesting Fire Engines. Regards, from Canada, Pat_R-B

Viacheslav, do you know what sort of fire this truck would respond to?
Thanks

Dry powder is very versatile, and can be used on virtually any class of fire. It is commonly found in hand extinguishers all over the world. I have used them in my own home when beds in our guest room caught fire (they were too small, and turned out to be pretty useless).

Umits like this are called to fires, which either cannot or should not be extinguished by water or foam. These include electrical installations, vehicles, aircraft fires, machinery which could be permanently damaged by water, as well as certain chemicals and metals.

Dry powder is very popular in northern and central Europe, but these types of major dry powder trucks are relatively few and far between elsewhere, except at airports and in certain industrial fire brigades. The trend nowadays amongst municipal fire services is to instal the powder cylinders on pods, which are brought to the incident by a multi-purpose transporter.

Powder trucks or pods are usually special called instead of being part of the first response, except where the pre-plan has identified a specific risk.

If you are buying a dry powder extinguisher for home or garage use, my advice is to get a 10KG unit - they may be a bit heavy for some family members, but the 2 and 5 KG extinguishers are a bit marginal in their effectiveness.
