HYDROSTATIC TESTING OF COMPRESSED GAS CYLINDERS
How many different types of cylinders are we dealing with in fire stations? Fire extinguishers, oxygen, SCBAs, scuba’s, cascade systems, large storage cylinders on the air trailer/compressor, cutting torch, and air supply for the vehicles` air horn may come from a stored pressure air cylinder. All of these and more, depending on specific locale, are cylinders that may require hydrostatic testing at a DOT-authorized cylinder requalification facility. There are finite rules and regulations concerning cylinder hydrotesting and safety. GCH takes that responsibility very seriously.
