- Thermal Shock Caution: However, be cautious at very close ranges, especially with delicate PCBs, as the cold discharge temperature could cause ‘thermal shock.’
- Handle with Care: CO2 extinguishers are pressurized at approximately 51 bar (740 psi). Damaging them can have severe consequences, so always handle them with respect.
- Frost Burn: During discharge, the nozzle can become extremely cold and cause serious frost burns if touched. Keep your hands away from it.
- Ventilation Matters: After use, ensure the area is well-ventilated. This allows the CO2 gas to disperse safely.
