Question Recharging Fire Extinguishers


We bought some fire extinguishers for our RV a few years back, including one for the refrigerator bay area, a halon filled one called an SS-30. This one now needs recharging. Does anyone know where or who we can take this to for getting it recharged?

The easiest way is to contact your local fire department and ask them. You can also look in the yellow pages and look for fire alarm installers as they usually sell and service extinguishers

regarding Halon 1301 –*it is no longer being made.

*While it is possible to "recondition" Halon 1301 agent storage cylinders to accommodate an alternative clean agent such as FM-200, it can sometimes cost more to have this service performed then to buy new FM-200 cylinders. Alternative agents INERGEN and FE-13 utilize a different type (high pressure) cylinder to deliver the agent to the hazard, so if the intent is to convert to one of these agents new cylinders will be required.

Halon is in limited supply and quite expensive now. Any firefighter's supply and yellow pages, if they still exist or the 'net are your friends here, can refill extinguishers. A rule of thumb given me a few years ago by my local supplier - if your extinguisher has a plastic nozzle, it wont be refilled (note I said wont not can't). Metal nozzle, yes, no problem (normally). With that said, and unless it is a big extinguisher 5# or more, it is less expensive to purchase new as the old may need the added expense of a fresh hydro test due age.
