Hydostatic testing of fire extinguishers
Fire Extinguisher’s body needs to be checked for its durability. This test involves subjecting the fire extinguisher to levels of pressure that exceed its rating but is still capable of maintaining the necessary pressure to discharge effectively in the event a fire breaks out.
In addition to hydrostatic testing, we will also inspect certain areas during the annual maintenance to see if they are broken, corroded, worn out, nicked or cracked. Identify corrosion on the cylinder that has caused pitting, or dents that are deeper on the surface area. Furthermore, we will also determine if the extinguisher has been misused or exposed to excessive heat or flame.
We do everything from standard maintenance to repairing or servicing specialized components. The main reason for doing a hydrostatic test is to check for leaks and overall strength to ensure the safety and overall effectiveness of the fire extinguisher.
How often does a fire extinguisher need hydrotesting?

Generally, the test must be undertaken every 5 years for pressurized water, carbon dioxide, and wet chemical fire extinguishers. If it is for dry chemical fire extinguishers, it needs to be carried out every 12 years, also depends on the material used for extinguishers shell.
