Water, chemical and portable fire extinguishers
If discovered in the early stages, a fire can be extinguished quickly if the correct fire extinguisher is available and used. It also helps if the person operating the extinguisher has been trained to use it properly.
Fire extinguishers are classified according to the type of fire they can extinguish. Mesong Fire and Safety Equipment supplies, installs and maintains portable fire extinguishers of all classes i.e. Class A, B, C, D and K.
Fire extinguisher maintenance depends upon the type of portable fire extinguisher being used, such as:
- Stored pressure, or dry chemical type, extinguishers are straight-forward and do not require an internal examination
- Water or steam fire extinguishers should be discharged, disassembled and inspected annually according to NFPA 10, 4-4.1.1
- Dry chemical extinguishers that require a 12 year hydrostatic test must undergo emptying and necessary maintenance procedures every six years
- Non-refillable, disposable dry chemical extinguishers are exempt from this requirement according to 29 CFR 1910.157(e)(4)
