anyone know what kind of fire extinguisher this is?
it's brass body with a cast brass handle
no ID of any kind, only 'fill here' stamped at one of the hex plugs
it had about a cup of what I think is carbon tetracloride inside




Cheers

Not helpful, I know, but it looks might have fitted the bracket on my 1965 Civil Defence B40.


Mike, home is where we moor it.

It's probably a PYRENE-brand extinguisher. It used a soda and water mix under pressure to "smother" fire.
These are outdated and no longer considered 'legal' as safety devices.

My dad had one on his boat in the 1950s.

Thanks guys
I kinda thought this was a boat item, shinny brass
i've had motorcycles catch fire, never anything serious
but I sure wouldn't want to be in a small boat, on fire,
with that to rely on
Cheers
