Dry Powder Fire Extinguishers

Dry powder fire extinguishers pack down over time, and form a solid block inside the extinguisher. Preventing them from dish charging completely: (approx 15 to20 seconds)
This can be demonstrated with white flour in the kitchen, if continually bumped on the counter will form a solid mass at the bottom of the container, this may take some time but we all know if you need to fit that last cup full in the container bumping the container will start this compaction process. Dry powder is extremely fine and this process of compaction takes less time.
Thus it is recommended by the makers and authorities the gently bump the extinguisher with soft hammer while holding extinguisher inverted and rotating it around to ensure all powder is in a fluid state inside the extinguisher. Gentle taps are all that is required you do not need to beat the extinguisher to death as the powder being such a fine state, will resume its fluid state easily.

Loan Wolf Racing: we cant do enough towards safety in our sport.

Also a extinguisher that has a hard mass and has not been tapped can also give a false reading on the charge level

Sounds like some clubs want fire extinguishers serviced regulary (Pt Lincoln), Must have tags or be stamped. This means a new, out of the box fire ex might not pass. Be careful.

cotton overalls are the minimum requirements (eg king gee etc..) but a fire proof race suit is recommended as per the rule book. You will find probably 50 % + race in overalls.

I agree with every thig said but for the life of me i can get a rule book.....If anyone can help please do, all i can manage to get is a copy on the computer, ive got eveything else ready but NO rule book, so do you get a rule book when you join a club? do you have to buy one, i see i can buy one from a bloke in Arno bay for $20, im not paying $20 for something i think would be no more than $5, one should be given to each driver on joining a club, it makes it hard building a car with out a rule book, an i cant race without one but no one knows how to get one just seems funny to me, so as i said if anyone can help me please point me in the right direction...( not you Furnall you always tell me where to go)
Thanks guy an girls

Hi Rick,

Just a heads up, The rule books are coming, the association are working thu the updates to the book at the moment. If we don't have any before our first meeting you will be allowed to race and we will supply you with the rules of racing before the meeting. The standard cost of the books are $10. I'll keep you informed to when they are avaliable.

Cheers
matt

If you are preparing to join one of the A.D.C.C.S.A clubs then it is recommended that you purchase a rule book before you build your car, otherwise it could end up becoming a costly task if you dont. You dont have to be a member to purchase a rule book, but the book is copyrighted by and for the association, and in 2012 a new/revised rule book is to be released.

Why is this?



Fire extingushers should be pressure tested by a qualified technician every 6 months and stamped on the tag. Correct me if I am wrong but I think the rule book states this also?
