Are you sure that the Fire Extinguishers in your premises are actuallay Effective?
The aim of the MAP Quality Assurance Test is to determine the percentage of mono-ammonium
phosphate(MAP) in ABC dry chemical powder. Do you know why it is important for us to know the
percentage of mono ammonium phosphate powder present inside the ABC powder type extinguisher?
ABC stored type fire extinguishers are commonly used in all buildings to put off fires of A, B
and C types as well as electrically generated fires. ABC stored type fire extinguishers are
completely sealed and we may not know the actual quality of the extinguishing media, that is,
the quality of Mono ammonium phosphate(MAP) powder filled inside it. The percentage of MAP decides the
extinguisher efficiency in effectively putting off a fire. The standard MAP content is expected to be
around 40 to 90% and an extinguisher with 0% MAP cannot put off even a small amount of fire. Therefore
is extremely important to test the quality of the powder using the "MAP Testing Kit".
