How to dispose fire extinguishers · Method
Even if the expiration date is not stated, let's stop storing or using fire extinguishers that are stored for about 5 to 8 years or those that have rust and scratches on the body of the fire extinguisher.
As for disposal, consult with a dealer, a fire extinguisher maker, or a nearby fire department. Fire extinguishers and aerosol fire extinguishers for residential use have a useful life of 3 to 5 years. Regarding here, since the last year is always stated, I will always check. As for disposal here as well, consulting with dealers, fire extinguisher makers and fire departments is a short cut. Municipalities basically do not collect fire extinguishers.
|Main body container||Those with corrosion are dangerous in terms of strength, so please dispose of it.|
|Lid (cap)||Those that are scratched, deformed, or corroded should be discarded promptly.|
|Zinc alloy die-cast lid, the gloss of plating is gone, wrinkles, streaks, and the surface is creped.|
|Plating peeled off, and white crystals were formed in the traces.|
- Fire extinguishers are designed to eject fire extinguishing chemicals at very high pressure. Therefore, corrosion due to rust, and scratches / deformations, there is a danger that the part can not withstand pressure and break.
- Please be careful not to let yourself get injured, nor to handle others carelessly.
- To prevent accidents, please dispose fire extinguishers that are no longer needed to dealerships or professional dealers who have never used them without fail.
- Disassembly / disposal processing costs expensive.
- For details, please ask the nearest fire extinguisher dealer or fire department.
