requalification of pressurized cylinders

All cylinders and extinguishers must be periodically inspected.

 

The decree of 15 March 2000 on the use of pressurized equipment, stipulates the following maximum interval between two periodical requalifications:

  • 2 years for cylinders for breathing apparatus used in deep-sea diving and for mobile recipients made of materials other than metal.
  • 5 years for cylinders for breathing apparatus used in deep-sea diving that have been periodically inspected at least once a year under the conditions specified in the circular TIV 864-1.
  • 10 years for other recipients (extinguishers), unless they are used after 5 years. Up to 5 years, the recipients simply have to be refilled.

Promat Sécurité is qualified to inspect this equipment in its certified workshops or on site.

Our requalification center is authorized by the ASAP to apply the official State stamp, allowing it to operate quite independently.

The applicable regulations are very precise in terms of inspections and vary according to the type of cylinder.
