Fire extinguisher maintenance is one of the most important aspects of fire protection for your building. In addition to monthly self-checkups and annual professional inspections, rechargeable fire extinguishers also require six-year maintenance.
If you need required six-year maintenance for the fire extinguishers in your building in New Jersey, Delaware, or Philadelphia, contact Confires today.
Why Does My Fire Extinguisher Need Six-Year Maintenance?
Every six years, stored pressure fire extinguishers that require a 12-year hydrostatic test (e.g. dry chemical extinguishers) must be emptied and proper maintenance procedures performed [see NFPA 10(98), Sec. 4-4.3]. The exception to this rule is non-rechargeable extinguishers, which are required to be removed from service 12 years from the date of manufacture. Again, this maintenance must be performed by an approved extinguisher servicing company.
Fire Extinguisher Maintenance Inspection
Our trained technicians will take the appropriate steps to ensure your fire extinguisher is in working order. Here are some the steps involved in a six-year fire extinguisher maintenance test:
- Complete disassembly and discharge of the fire extinguisher
- Detailed inspection of the inside of the extinguisher
- Valve is taken apart and thoroughly cleaned
- Outside shell of the extinguisher is inspected for cracks, leaks, or abnormalities
- Extinguisher is refilled with chemical
- Valve and shell are reconnected, and a service verification tag is attached
