Extinguisher Hose Tests

Extinguisher Hose Tests

The United States Coast Guard has ruled that each discharge hose of a “semi-portable CO2 system” must be tested at a pressure of 1000 psi whenever the cylinders are tested. This ruling affects systems aboard vessels and was made last January 13.

The Coast Guard reported that a comment favoring the ruling was the only one received during the comment period required by law.
