“Means shall be provided for the crew to safely check the quantity of the fire extinguishing medium in the containers”

  • In the UAE it is estimated by marine servicing companies that typical findings are that 10-30% of the ships CO2 cylinders have accidentally discharged or leaked.
  • Extract from IMO & FSS Codes: International Maritime Organisation (IMO) Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) International Fire Safety Systems (FSS) Code Chapter 5 - Fixed gas fire extinguishing systems 1. Application This chapter details the specifications for fixed gas fire-extinguishing systems as required by chapter II-2 of the Convention. 2. Engineering Specifications 2.1 General 2.1.1 Fire-Extinguishing Medium 2. 1. 1. 3 Means shall be provided for the crew to safely check the quantity of the fire extinguishing medium in the containers.
  • Annual certification checks cannot cater for the need to monitor suppression cylinders for the rest of the year. Annual inspections or unreliable mechanical pressure gauges leave the fire suppression system vulnerable between annual checks.


  • The Portalevel’s credentials back up this success; proven accurate to +/-1.5mm by numerous different organizations, proven to save 75% of the time to complete testing when compared to weighing cylinders, it is the only Liquid Level Indicator to achieve full Classification Society Approval and there is currently over 11,000 units in operation worldwide.
