Rusted Broken fire extinguisher Restoration



 

This is a very old Fire Extinguisher made in USA in 1910 by the company Pyrene Company Limited.
The name Pyrene was epitomised by their famous ‘pump’ extinguisher which was installed on public transport, commercial and private vehicles throughout the western world.
Pyrene Phomene installations were fitted to many ships during the 1930s.
The liner Queen Mary was protected by the installation of a Pyrene foam fire-fighting system in 1933.
