It’s important for marine servicing companies to bid to service a ship’s CO2 fixed fire fighting system as this can comprise 200 – 600, 45kg CO2 Cylinders per ship. These cylinders are under 720psi or 49 bars of pressure. They can discharge accidentally or be subject to slow seepage. Some marine service companies estimate that at one time 20% of a ship’s CO2 cylinders have discharged or partially leaked their contents and there are over 55,000 commercial vessels at sea at any time.
Servicing and CO2 bottle testing is often carried out in port, and the ship may only be available to the contractor for a couple of hours. The usual is one component of a CO2 fixed fire fighting system inspection, these marine service crews shut down the CO2 system, dismantle it and weigh each cylinder. On average each cylinder will take 40 minutes to dismantle, weigh, record and reinstall, meaning that it would take 400 man-hours to achieve that on a 600 cylinder marine installation.
Choose the Portalevel range of Co2 Level Tester for your CO2 bottle testing which is ideal for a quicker and safer CO2 fire suppression system inspection.
Typically used for CO2 bottle testing, Portalevel can also be used CO2 discharge test to identify the level of contents left in the cylinder. Otherwise Portalevel could be useful to avoid a full CO2 discharge test by confirming the cylinder fill.
