About Aviation Fire Systems Australia
"AFSA" Aviation Fire Systems Australia is a subsidiary division of Fire System Services Pty Ltd.
AFSA was developed to provide aircraft sustainment in the field of Fire Safety and Life Support Services.
The company skill sets for aircraft sustainment is testing and maintenance of the following equipment:
In addition, we are also able to assist with our sister company National Hydro Cylinder Testing Services in providing service in the realm of structural pressure testing, Our workshop capabilities allow us to provide a quality service in relation to hydrostatic pressure testing. Our expertise allows us to obtain extremely accurate testing from .05mpa / 500kpa / 5bar up to 1000mpa / 100,000kpa / 1,000bar.

Precise Test Measurements:
Why is it important to place emphasis on test pressures, items that have been overstretched (over pressurised) can be prone to failure. it's critical to know that the pressure being achieved are with in Manufacturers Test Specifications.
Using Quality Assured test gauges such as Crystal Engineering XP2i Gauges, this allows the test station to be able to data log into the test gauge. This will give the client test certificates which helps meets all their airworthiness certification.

What are the testing intervals and life limits?
Intervals vary by bottle type and manufacture, as well as by airframe application. The following simplified chart of the current DOT published requirements follows:
Require your Aviation Oxygen Cylinders Tested or Cleaned?
workshop activities also include testing and refilling inflation cylinders such as Co2/Nitrogen life raft cylinders and also high pressure 4500psi helium composite cylinders used on helicopter emergency inflation skids.
Apart from aviation cylinders, the station is called upon to conduct structural testing to hydraulic fluid lines which are fitted upon aircraft.
Other capabilities include testing of:
POB Ejection Seats - we were asked to look at testing and cleaning Oxygen Cylinders that was associated with ejection seating.
