Are all Racecar Fire Bottles the Same?

There are multiple types of fire extinguishers for the auto racing community ranging from Carbon Dioxide, Dry Chemical Powder, and Vaporising Liquids such as Novec to firefighting foams such as AFFF and Cold Fire.

This also includes low-pressure gas cylinders and high-pressure rated gas cylinders.

Manually Mechanically Operated Units / Manually Electric Operated Units / Dual Manually & Electric Operated Units.

  • Manually mechanically usually is a pull cable operating system.
  • Manually, electricity is typically voltage sent to a solenoid that opens the valve.
  • Dual manually electric is an electric solenoid and an N2 gas fire detection tubing that operates the solenoid and valve.

Low-Pressure Cylinders

Our workshop capabilities allow us to test and refill low-pressure vehicle fire suppression systems and hand-held portable fire extinguishers.

Low-pressure vehicle fire suppression cylinders usually have a working pressure of 10 bar / 1000 kPa and a life cycle of 10 years.

These are typically used for firefighting foam applications and are somewhat affordable.

They are considered throwaway cylinders due to a 10-year life cycle from manufacture.

If these units are discharged after five years of age, generally, they should not be refilled as they can not undergo a hydrostatic pressure test, as the cylinders do not bear a test pressure indicator. The cylinders can fail a hydrostatic pressure test at 25 bar / 2500 kPa.

Within the Commonwealth of Australia, Per the Gas Cylinder Test Scheme and Australian Standards AS2030 & AS2337, these welded cylinders must undergo pressure testing every five years.

Some fire suppression cylinders are fitted with a single-shot actuator and require new parts after every use; this can only be undertaken by distributing agents.

It should be noted that according to the Gas Cylinder Test Scheme and Australian Standards AS2337 & AS2030, All Fire Extinguishers must Undergo Hydrostatic Pressure Testing every five years.

This includes Motor Sports in Australia regardless of whether FIA / ASN Racing Standards or Regulations Apply.

Before getting re-gassed, any older cylinders must be checked to see if the Gas Cylinder Test Stamp is current.

Failing to do so leaves the operator and the re-filler at risk of injury and prosecution if someone is injured.

High-Pressure Gas Cylinders

Our licensed gas cylinder test station and capabilities allow us to test high-pressure gas cylinders associated with Motorsports.

High-pressure gas cylinders are used for various gas traffics such as carbon dioxide, nitrogen, nitrous oxide, and fire-fighting foams such as Cold Fire.

These gas cylinders do not have an end-of-life date and can be refilled within the Commonwealth of Australia.

These gas cylinders are generally more expensive but can usually be refilled by local fire safety gas cylinder test stations or accredited fire cert ii technicians.

Cold Fire

Fire System Services stocks and refills Cold Fire, fire extinguisher & suppression cylinders.

Cold Fire™ is a multi-purpose environmentally friendly fire extinguishing agent that puts out the fire faster and safer, with less water and less property damage. Cold Fire cools 21 times more quickly than beats other foams hands-down!

Completely ‘green’ and non-toxic, Cold Fire puts out any Class A, B, D, or F Class fires, hydrocarbons or non-polar solvents, metals, tires, and asphalt.

It also suppresses vapors and helps to remediate spills.

Cold Fire is UL-listed and is used by fire departments and high-risk organisations worldwide due to its fantastic ability to quench nearly every fire. It eliminates the need to carry multiple foam types, like AFFF, AR-AFFF, and Class B foams.

Just one foam is needed – Cold Fire!
