Your first line of defense is your handheld extinguisher. Grabbing a strategically placed extinguisher can prevent a fire from becoming substantial and causing more damage. A must-have for all businesses, All Florida Fire Equipment can provide and service all types of extinguishers. Following The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), our licensed technicians will provide annual inspections as well as mandatory maintenance.
Annual Inspections: It is a state law that an external evaluation of the extinguisher is performed annually. This process is done by inspecting the cylinder for damage, rust, and wear and tear. Make sure the manufacturer labels are legible and intact. Ensure the hose line is clear of debris and the pressure gauge reads at the appropriate level. Once the inspection is complete, a tamper seal will be affixed to ensure this proper state. A certification sticker or tag will be attached showing that your extinguisher has been inspected by a licensed professional.
Recharge: Based on the manufacturer’s guidelines and following NFPA standards, an extinguisher will receive its first maintenance (recharge) when it’s six years old or if it has been used. Along with the standard annual inspection, an internal evaluation will also be done. First, Remove the chemical from within and examine the internal structure of the cylinder for fractures or contaminants. New chemicals will be added, and the cylinder will be repressurized. A maintenance collar and a silver sticker will be attached, stating maintenance has been completed.
Hydrostatic Test: All Florida Fire Equipment is one of the most prominent DOT (Department of Transportation) hydrostatic testing facilities in the Tampa Bay area. When it comes to your extinguisher, a hydrostatic test will be performed once it reaches twelve years, based on the manufacturer’s guidelines. This process is more extensive to ensure the cylinder can withstand the pressure inside. The hydrostatic test will begin if it passes the internal and external visual examination. The cylinder is placed inside a water jacket and pressurized more with water added by a high-pressure pump. Specific measurements are taken then the water returns to normal pressure. Qualified extinguishers will then be refilled and repressurized; The valve and O-ring will be replaced, and the certification stickers will be attached.
