Cylinder Pressure Testing & Cylinder Service Exchange2021-01-13T15:37:31+00:00

“Legal requirement of the European Standard EN 1968:2002 (Transportable gas cylinders – Periodic inspection and testing of seamless steel gas cylinders) & EN 1803:2002 (Transportable gas cylinders – Periodic inspection and testing of welded carbon steel gas cylinders)”

All high pressure cylinders used for all the gaseous fire suppression systems are legally required to be pressure tested every 10 years.

Not discounting the Health & Safety implications of this legislation, for many Business Critical operators the key issue remains the fact that their business processes could be highly vulnerable from the threat of fire whilst high pressure cylinders are removed from a fire extinguishing system for testing and inspection.

“It is now the system owner/users responsibility to submit their cylinders for periodic testing as laid down under the standard”

As a result of the this requirement and the impact it will have on our customers and their business, Automatic Fire & Integrated Solutions are delighted to advise that we have implemented a cylinder change out programme designed to minimise any disturbance to our customer business.

Under this change out program our change out team can replace your existing out of date un-certified cylinders with replacement cylinders certified for a further 10 years and re-commission your cylinder bank in one swift visit

The above program is designed to:
• Minimise System Downtime
• Minimise Customer Cost
• Minimise Disturbance to our customer’s business

and leave our customers with a fully certified operational Gaseous Fire Suppression System on completion for a further 10 years.

All works are carried out by fully trained and certified engineers trained specifically to carry out these works safely and professionally.

Automatic Fire & Integrated Solutions can carry out Full Cylinder Pressure Testing and Cylinder Service Exchange on all the leading manufacturers cylinders installed on the Irish Market place today such as Macron, Hygood, Kidde, LPG, Tyco, Wormald, Fireater, Chubb, Fike, FSL and Thorn Cylinders who all world leading brands in Fire Suppression.

We can also offer to refill only if required all gaseous suppression agents such as FM200, HCF227EA, NOVEC 1230, INERGEN, IG541, Argonite, IG55, Argon, IG01, Nitrogen, IG100 and CO2.

As an Engineering company Automatic Fire Suppression can also carry out a full site survey and provide you with options on upgrading your OLD suppression systems due for pressure testing to a cleaner, effective, Non Global Warming and Non Ozone Depleting Suppression System that will leave you with a fully certified fire suppression protection for a further 10 years that meets all todays engineering standards and environmental requirements.

Enclosure Integrity Testing2021-01-13T15:37:12+00:00

Gaseous Fire Suppression – the BIG question?
Users need to know whether their gaseous fire protection system will work! After mechanical and electrical checks have been completed the question remains – if agent is released onto a fire, will it achieve its extinguishing concentration and maintain it for long enough to both extinguish the fire and prevent reignition?

Our fan testing enables rooms to be tested using a portable variable speed fan instead of discharging the gaseous agent. The multi pressure test results are fed into our software with system data, which determines the total leakage area and the extinguishing concentration ‘hold time’.

British, European and ISO standards now mandate a fan integrity test to determine the ‘hold time’ for all new gaseous fire extinguishing systems. The standards also call for rechecking of enclosures, at least every 12 months, to establish that building/services changes that take place have not compromised the effectiveness of the gaseous fire protection.

Automatic Fire & Integrated Solutions fan test protocol accurately predicts the hold time for any inert or chemical gas.

How the Integrity test works
Automatics test kit comprises a variable speed fan, adjustable door frames, nylon screens and sensitive pressure measuring devices, which are used in conjunction with specialised in house computer software to evaluate leaks and determine hold time characteristics.

The test involves fitting an adjustable door frame and nylon screen within the frame of a doorway to the enclosure. A portable variable speed fan is fitted within the nylon screen. Instrumentation is connected to the fan and located within the enclosure. By adjusting the speed and orientation of the fan within the screen a series of pressurisation and depressurisation readings are taken to determine the characteristics of the enclosure.

The position in which the front or rear of the variable speed is fitted within the nylon screen determines the type of test to be performed.

A wide variety of applications
Automatic Fire & Integrated Solutions engineers can accurately test almost any size and shape of space, from a small turbine enclosure to a mainframe computer suite, quickly and unobtrusively.
