All companies in Palm Springs, Los Angeles and Orange County Use Portable, wheeled or fixed unit fire extinguishers. Fire Extinguishers are an invaluable tool if they are readily available and properly functioning in the event of fire emergencies. Hydrostatic testing is used to make sure the fire extinguishers are functioning properly as time and use can take a time on the cylinder and parts. Fire extinguishers are designed for specific use and should be matched to the Class of Fire it was designed to fight, such as Class A, B, C, D or Class K (Types of Fire Extinguishers) installing them near their specific designated fire hazards in vehicles, buildings, facilities or structures as described by Insurance Company, OSHA, Federal or Government Agency and Fire & Safety Codes in Southern California.
When KORD Fire Protection conducts a Hydrostatic test, we ensure the fire extinguisher tank cylinder will hold the stored pressure, and thus the extinguishing agent. We are certified to services all installed fire extinguishers in Southern California. Our process and the state and local mandated evaluation helps determine the containers strength against possible failures.
Hydrostatic testing is performed by filling the container with water or another non-compressible fluid that is compatible with the fire extinguisher container. The pressure is then increased on the container to a specific point as required by the manufacturer or Federal safety standards, and the container is inspected for potential failure points. The pressure must be maintained for at least 30 seconds.
