What aspects of the fire extinguisher should be checked before use?

Update:14 Dec 2021

In many fire-fighting devices, the fire extinguisher is an indispensable device. Before using it, it must be thoroughly inspected.

   1. To inspect the fire extinguisher, check whether the pressure and lead seal of the fire extinguisher are well sealed, and check whether the pointer of the pressure gauge on the fire extinguisher is normal. If the pointer is biased toward the red area, it is abnormal and needs to be replaced in time.

   2. Check whether the hose is intact and whether the nozzle of the fire extinguisher is damaged. If so, it should be replaced in time. At the same time, check whether the nozzle is blocked.

  3. Check whether the bottle of the fire extinguisher is rusty or deformed. At the same time, it also depends on whether the fire extinguisher is within the validity period. It is necessary to make a timely inspection record.

   4. Check whether the fire hydrant is deformed or broken, and gradually open the door of the box. If the door cannot be opened, make a record in time.

   5. Check whether the valve of the fire extinguisher is leaking. If so, replace the new valve in time to prevent the fire extinguisher from being unable to operate normally in an emergency.

  6. ​​Check whether the alarm system of the fire extinguisher is in a normal state, and check that the water tank, water gun, and water belt are not lost or damaged. The screws on the water gun need to be carefully determined.

   Finally, check whether the battery of the emergency lighting lamp has a missing order. The green indicator light indicates normal operation, and the red indicator indicates that it is charging. If you see a yellow light, it is a malfunction.
