Maintenance of pressurized fire extinguishers

Posted on February 18, 2017 in News

The extinguisher should be inspected at regular intervals (monthly or more often if circumstances dictate) to insure that it is ready for use.  Inspect that a fire extinguisher is available and is in operating condition.  It is intended to give reasonable assurance that the fire extinguisher is fully charged.

Visually inspect the pressure gauge:

a. If bent, damaged or improper gauge, depressurize and replace.

b. If pressure is low, check for leaks.

c. If over pressurized (overcharged), depressurize the extinguisher and follow recharge instructions.
