Fire Suppression Cylinder Hydrostatic Testing

Ten Year Periodic Fire Suppression Cylinder Hydrostatic Testing & Recertification Services

All cylinders used in data centre or server room fire protection applications are legally required under the European standard BSEN1968 (2002) to be hydrostatic pressure tested at least every ten years.

Hydrostatic pressure testing of the pressurised gas cylinder should be undertaken in order to prove its strength, integrity and to ensure that safety standards are maintained so your gas cylinders remain safe, in good working condition and suitable for continued use.

It is the responsibility of the company, owner or user of the equipment to ensure that periodic hydrostatic testing is undertaken. Failure to ensure that periodic hydrostatic testing of cylinders is undertaken could lead to fines and in cases extreme cases where lives have been endangered, imprisonment.

Identifying Cylinder Age - Each fire suppression cylinder typically has identification markings on the neck ring detailing the year/month of manufacture in order to see when the cylinder test is due.
