We offer Fire equipment Recharging for the following fire fighting agents: ABC, Standard BC & Purple-K dry chemical. Class D Powders including Class D Sodium Chloride for Magnesium and Titanium metal hazards and "Copper" Class D recharging for Lithium type hazards. We offer De-ionized Water charging for Water Mist extgs., as well as Anti-Freeze charges for Water extgs. installed in areas below -32F. Wetting Agent/Liquid Chemical is offered for water extinguishers which makes the water wetter and offers a better Soaking/Quenching effect for these liquid extgs. on Class A hazards. For Clean-Agent Recharging, we offer: Halotron I, Halon 1211 & Clean Guard/FE-36 Pressure Gas and CO2 Carbon Dioxide Recharging. Please note that all Halon 1211 recharging is performed using "Non-Virgin" Recycled Halon 1211 Gas which conforms with all current EPA Environment Protocols. Call us for your fire equipment recharging needs. Look for our Blue Inspection/Service Tag indicating that your equipment is current and safe to use.
Hydrostatic Pressure Testing
HYDROSTATIC PRESSURE TESTING is a pressure test that is required every 12 years on dry chemical, wet chemical systems, halon, halotron, FE-36, and other clean agent fire extinguishers. This pressure test is also required every 5 years on CO2, compressed gas, and all liquid type fire extinguishers, including stainless steel cylindered extinguishers. The hydrostatic pressure test is performed to confirmed the integrity and ensure the safety limits of the pressure vessel (cylinder) so it is safe to pressurize and use as a fire extinguisher in the event it is needed to fight a fire. This procedure is required under National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) pamphlet #10, 17,17A, 11, #2001 Standards and Department of Transportation (DOT) Regulations.
Six Year Maintenance Procedure
SIX YEAR MAINTENANCE is an internal procedure that is performed on all dry chemical, dry powder and Clean Agent extinguishers. This procedure is required so as to inspect the chemical agent internally and confirm that the fire fighting agent chemical will discharge properly when called upon. This service procedure is also required by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), State Fire Code and your Insurance Carrier.
In addition, we further ensure the capabilities of your equipment by pressurizing your fire extinguisher using DRY NITROGEN GAS verses compressed air, which if moist, could cause the chemical agent to cake and not discharge properly when called upon.
