Fire extinguisher maintenance


"This is a set of pictures of a exploded fire extinguisher that was nor properly maintained. In a fire in the factory the FE was used, however due to lack of regular maintenance the outlet nozzle was choked resulting in excess internal pressure built up, resulting in the CO2 canister blowing off. This compounded the already chaotic condition prevailing as well as injuring the person using the FE. A classic case of safety equipment not being properly maintained. Thus not only making them useless during the hour of need but also compounding to the problem at hand"
