Carbon dioxide is an odorless and colorless gas. It weighs about 1.5 times the air; it does not wet, dirty and it does not damage objects. The CO2 used in the extinguishers is 99% pure and it is moisture-less. C02 is compressed in liquid phase inside the high-pressure cylinder. In normal conditions at 20°C, the pressure inside the cylinder is about 55-60 bar and 1 Kg of liquid C02 produces approx 520 liters of vapor gas.
