Fire Extinguisher recycling / re-purposing Answered
I run a fire safety company in the UK.
I'm looking for new ways to re-use old fire extinguishers. Maybe I could make a smoker/dehydrater from a large cylinder type?
We always have old fire extinguishers to get rid of that are no longer required. The ABC Powder type are a pain to dispose of, but provide different sizes of metal cannisters and 'mono-Ammonium Phosphate' powder, which could potentially be re-used as fertilizer.
Whist we do send 2kg & 5kg CO2 units away to get a rebate on new units we tend to have plenty of these available, should someone want to tinker with one. Possibly for the wind-chime / Temple Bell Instructables? or maybe to make a resin filled filter for biodiesel?.
If you live in the UK and would have a use for these untis let me know, you can always collect some from Bristol or Gloucestershire.
