Tech Tips # 10

Description

WARNING: NEVER LEAVE CARBON DIOXIDE TRAPPED IN A WHEELED CO2 EXTINGUISHER HOSE ASSEMBLY.

Amerex Wheeled Carbon Dioxide extinguishers are equipped with a shut-off at the extinguisher horn. If the horn shut-off is closed before the extinguisher cylinder valve is shut off, CO2 gas will be trapped in the hose assembly. The CO2 gas can expand to the point of rupturing the hose in warm weather or an extremely warm environment.

YOUR CUSTOMERS AND SERVICE TECHNICIANS SHOULD BE ADVISED OF THIS PROCEDURE TO AVOID POTENTIAL PERSONAL INJURY OR PROPERTY DAMAGE.

ALWAYS VENT ANY REMAINING CO2 BY SQUEEZING THE HORN SHUT-OFF AFTER THE EXTINGUISHER VALVE IS CLOSED!
