General Fire and Safety provides CO2 recharging for commercial cylinders across various industries. CO2 extinguishers and cylinders are filled with non-flammable carbon dioxide gas under extreme pressure. CO2 cylinders range in size from 5lbs to 100lbs, or even larger. Refilling a CO2 extinguisher or cylinder requires gas-compressing equipment from our facility and the expertise of our staff.
Our Expertise in CO2 Refilling
We refill CO2 and HPA paintball cylinders. We can also fill SCBA cylinders and airsoft rifle charging cylinders rated up to 4500 psi. All CO2 extinguishers undergo hydrostatic testing and recharge every five years. General Fire and Safety offers professional and expert refilling, recharging, and hydrostatic testing for optimum performance of CO2 extinguishers and cylinders.
CO2 Cylinders and Safety
Carbon dioxide, or CO2, is stored in cylinders as a compressed liquified gas. This is why it is so important to keep temperatures regulated around your CO2 cylinders, as any increase in temperature will cause an increase in pressure as well. Beyond just making sure you are storing your cylinders in a cool place with low level ventilation, we recommend you always use gloves when handling CO2 cylinders and valves. At our CO2 cylinder recharging facilities we take the utmost care in our safety precautions.
Schedule a free, no-obligation walk-through to make your workplace safer. We check for things like ensuring the proper equipment is being used for the usage of your CO2 cylinders, that cylinders are secured vertically with the valve at the top before use, and that your cylinders have the correct commodity labels.
It’s important to have your empty CO2 cylinders recharged as soon as possible once they are empty.
