A fire extinguisher needs refilling on two accounts:
First: If the fire extinguisher is used, even partially, it is useless in case of a subsequent fire scenario. Hence it is essential to get the fire extinguisher recharged immediately, without any delay.
Second: The statutory framework in the country makes it mandatory for the shell of the fire extinguisher to undergo Hydrostatic Pressure Test every 3 years.
The Industry Refilling Process
The extinguisher refilling activity is often carried out by unskilled and untrained people in a highly compromised environment.
In most cases refilling by the local players means only re-pressurizing of the cylinder. No component of the extinguisher is actually changed as a process.
Only broken / dis functional parts are changed with local spares.
In most cases the extinguishing agent (ABC Powder) is recycled. The top up is done many times with the local/sub-standard ABC powder.
These days rampant use of marble dust being added as extinguishing agent by local players are being reported.
Ceasefire Refilling Process
Every Ceasefire Fire Extinguisher that comes to us for a refill undergoes the following standard process…
1. The Fire Extinguisher is manually discharged / fired and emptied.
4. The cylinder undergoes
the fresh painting process by first, Static Charge Powder coating and then baking in Oven at 180 degrees for 15 minutes. This results into a super fine quality and durable new paint surface on the cylinder.
2. The extinguisher is then dismantled completely; cylinder is de-stressed.
5. New extinguishing agent (powder, gas, water or foam) is filled in the cylinder through a vacuum based process that fills the cylinder with exact quantity of extinguishing agent.
3. The cylinder then is made to undergo a Hydro Static Pressure Test at 30kgf cm sq
for 2 minutes to check for leaks and the burst capacity.
6. New Discharge fitment mechanism including all new rubber seals, O rings,
and hose pipe (EPDM with 50 kg burst capacity) are attached.
7. Fire extinguisher is charged pressurized) with 99.99% pure nitrogen mixed with helium.
8. The Fire Extinguisher is then
made to go through Leak tests. The first is an inverted beaker test in water. The extinguishers also undergo a Mass Spectro Meter Helium Leak Detection Test which is the most advanced leak detection technology available currently in the world.
