Extinguishers are subjected to periodical inspections in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions and serviced at intervals not exceeding one year.
As part of annual inspection scope, we weigh the extinguisher, check to see if extinguisher has been operated, if the pressure is within limits and if there is any corrosion or damages.
Servicing and inspection of pressurized extinguishers is carried out at our shore servicing facility. We have adequate facilities at our premises to conduct refilling of CO2 for example.
Our team will check the charges and ensure free flowing. If necessary, we will replace the charge in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. We maintain an ample amount of dry powder, foam and cartridges.
We will also check that the safety pin is removable and that the lever is undamaged. When required, we are able to top up pressure of the extinguishers.
As part of 10 yearly service, we will hydraulically test the extinguishers and any accompanying propellant cartridges after a detailed examination, cleaning and replacing all parts that are found to be faulty.
