Replacement of fire extinguishers
What to do with old fire extinguishers that may have reached the end of their useful life? When should fire extinguishers be replaced?
The lifespan of a portable fire extinguisher
How long does a portable fire extinguisher last? With proper care, capsules should last about 10 to 12 years. Off-peakers should be hydrostatically tested at 10-year intervals to confirm cylinder condition. If the test is successful, the capsule can be recharged and used for many years.
When to replace your fire extinguisher
Disposable fire extinguishers that are acceptable for household use and are not rechargeable must be replaced every 12 years. For commercial grade rechargeable extinguishers, consult a licensed fire extinguisher contractor if any of the following conditions are present:
Slow pressure drop considering it has not been used for a long time
What should I do with a fire extinguisher that fails inspection?
At certain times, parts may be repaired, especially if the fire extinguisher is new. If you are not sure whether you need to replace or repair a damaged fire extinguisher, call Hamiyar Energy for an inspection. We will provide expert advice based on what we receive.If it turns out that you need to replace your capsules, you can’t just throw them away as extinguishing agents are considered hazardous materials. These chemicals should not be misused. Here’s how to work with an old expired or damaged extinguisher:
If your canister is partially or fully charged, call the fire department and ask if they will, otherwise, take the canister to a hazardous waste disposal facility.
If your capsule is empty, press the lever to ensure that no pressure remains inside you. You can contact your energy partner or a recycling center to ask about liquid concentrate disposal.
