Dry chemical fire extinguisher is by far the most common fire extinguishers at present. They can handle all three types of fires you would find in a kitchen or workshop: combustible solids like wood or paper, combustible liquids like gasoline or grease, and electrical fires. The idea behind a dry chemical fire extinguisher is to blanket the fuel with an inert solid (similar to dirt or sand). A dry chemical extinguisher sprays a very fine powder of sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3, baking soda), potassium bicarbonate (KHCO3, nearly identical to baking soda), or monoammonium phosphate ((NH4)H2PO4). These solids coat the fuel and smother the fire.

According to the classification of mobile mode, dry chemical fire extinguisher can be divided into portable, knapsack and trolley type three types. Currently dry chemical fire extinguisher has been widely used in oil fields, oil depots, oil refineries, chemical plants, chemical storage, shipping, airports, and industrial and mining enterprises.
