Hydro Testing and Cylinder Re-Qualifying
Security Fire Equipment is a D.O.T. certified cylinder re-qualifying facility. We hydrostatic test fire extinguishers, SCUBA tanks, SCBA tanks, aircraft cylinders, beverage (CO2) and most types of compressed gas cylinders.
We use “state of the art” Galiso computer driven test equipment capable of testing cylinder test pressures to 10,000 psi., and unlike most test facilities, Security Fire Equipment can provide you a computer printout of your cylinder(s) test for your record.
Professionally competent visual inspections are a key element in the proper maintenance of gas cylinders (such as those used for fire extinguishers, scuba diving and by firefighters), and the inspection of the cylinder neck threads is an important part of the process.
Testing Cylinder Threads With Visual Plus 3
Even the best trained and most experienced technician can miss or wrongly diagnose small imperfections, such as hairline cracks and folds in the neck/shoulder area of aluminum cylinders using hydrostatic testing alone. Security Fire Equipment uses the Visual Plus 3 and optical plus, a non destructive testing device, identifies hairline cracks in the threads of cylinders. Visual Plus 3 not only detects cracks, it identifies corrosion, gouges, pits, folds, valleys, tool stops and other types of indications—and it shows you the differences among them on five different color-coded graphs, including both linear and three-dimensional views, on a computer screen.

Endorsed by major cylinder manufacturers, including Luxfer and Catalina, Visual Plus 3 is the best inspection technology you can buy today—and because of its exclusive software and versatile calibration features, Visual Plus 3 will be the equipment of choice for inspecting new aluminum alloys in the future.00% of these defective cylinders using the latest in eddy current technology.
