There are several different types of inspections required:
6 Year Inspections for all extinguishers which are subject to the 12 year hydrostatic test:
Per NFPA 10, every 6 years, stored pressure dry chemical fire extinguishers shall be emptied and subjected to internal examination procedures as detailed in the manufacturer’s service manual. The extinguisher is discharged into an approved container and then the chemical, cylinder and all parts are inspected and replaced If necessary before the extinguisher is recharged and certified. When the rebuild is complete, the fire extinguisher should have a verification of service collar around the neck and a label on the back indicating the company who performed the service.
