Fire Extinguisher Repair
Fire extinguishers are a critical part of your business’s fire protection plan. Of course, they can only be effective if they are in proper working order. Do you have a leaky, rusty, or damaged fire extinguisher? Did you discharge it recently, and now it needs to be recharged? Contact Liberty Fire Solutions in Central Pennsylvania, and we’ll perform the fire extinguisher repair you need. If a repair is not possible, we are happy to recycle the cylinder for you and recommend a suitable replacement product.
Fire Extinguisher Repair
Pressurized metal cylinders are highly durable, and inspections don’t usually turn up any problems. However, if you discover one of your fire extinguishers has bumps, dents, rust, or a broken tamper seal, it might not be safe to use if a fire breaks out. Before you assume you must replace the cylinder, contact Liberty Fire Solutions. We may be able to repair your extinguisher so you can place it back into service for a lower cost than replacing it.
Fire Extinguisher Inspection
While you can conduct monthly fire extinguisher inspections on your own, a professional fire safety technician should also perform routine inspections once a year. This service ensures your fire extinguisher doesn’t need repair. If we uncover any issues during the inspection, we can take the necessary steps to restore the extinguisher to its fully functional condition.
Fire Extinguisher Recharge
During routine inspections, always check the pressure gauge. The needle on a full cylinder will point to the green. However, a leaky or discharged extinguisher will point to the red. Even if the cylinder has only been discharged slightly, this could affect its performance the next time you need it. To ensure it’s ready to battle a blaze at a moment’s notice, never ignore an under-pressurized extinguisher—instead, bring it to Liberty Fire Solutions for recharge services. We’ll refill the cylinder and check for any defects that could have caused it to lose pressure.
Fire Extinguisher Hydrostatic Testing
After years of holding gases under pressure, fire extinguishers may lose their structural integrity. If the cylinder fails, it could cause property damage or injury. Hydrostatic testing catches problematic fire extinguishers and other pressurized cylinders before they become a safety hazard. Liberty Fire Solutions performs hydrostatic tests at our DOT testing facility in Central Pennsylvania. Testing is required at 5-, 10-, or 12-year intervals, depending on the type of cylinder you have. Contact us with questions or to schedule services.
Fire Extinguisher Replacement
Fire extinguisher repair is always ideal to save money and reduce waste, but certain problems can’t be fixed. Because of its life-saving importance, you will most likely need to replace your fire extinguisher if any of the following is true:
- The hose or nozzle is cracked, clogged, ripped, or otherwise damaged.
- The pin on the handle is broken or missing.
- The handle is wobbly.
- The shell is cracked.
- The inspection tag is missing, making the history of the cylinder a mystery.
