12 Year Hydrotest
Every 12 years from date of new or date of last hydrotest, every basic fire extinguisher needs to be hydrotested as per manufacturers specifications. This test is crucial as these fire extinguishers are pressure vessels,.
12 year hydrostatic testing is for dry chemical and clean agent extinguishers. After hydrostatic testing, the fire protection technician must attach a label to the fire extinguisher, recording the month, year, test pressure used and list Alltron
Systems (1990) as the service company. This service can only be conducted by a certified fire extinguisher technician in a certified recharge shop. Alltron’s recharge shop is certified annually.
