USCG Type B-I 5 lb Clean Agent
Leaves no residue whatsoever. These handheld units are ideal for areas containing sensitive electronics, such as nav stations, as well as for engine fires. Their extinguishing agent is Halotron, an environmentally friendlier alternative to the no longer produced Halon agent.
These extinguishers are super pressurized, using argon gas, which enables a user to stand as far as ten feet away from the fire. Upon release, the agent turns instantly into a "heavier than air" gas. As such, it cools and tends to settle and remain in an enclosed space, such as an engine compartment. Applied directly to engines, it causes no cold shock, as with carbon dioxide extinguishers, and thus will not damage the engine or component parts.
