O2, Co2, Halon & N2 bottles
Pressure vessel/bottle are employed in different aviation apparatus from inflating emergency and life preservation to fire suppression systems CAA can test, overhaul, refill and recertify.
Air Worthy Pressure Vessels
Cylinders are tested and re-certified using a combination of manufacture specifications, Transport Canada, FAA, and EU guidelines.
50 years of regulated aircraft component repair is transferred to safety systems division
Self-contained, high pressure, fixed oxygen sources that supply controlled pressure aviation oxygen. Regulators and delivery apparatus deliver suitable pressure for orifice-type or demand-type mask assemblies. Regulators are either of a toggle-type or lever-type. Toggle-type regulators ensure error free use by keeping the systems on or lever type to regulators offer safe on/off actuation.
The portable oxygen systems are that provides a constant flow breathing system and the type of cylinder determines the life limit before recertification is needed.
CAA basic oxygen bottle service is to hydrotest the cylinder, perform a functional test on the regulator and refill the bottle.
Fire extinguishers cylinders filled with Halon protect the aircraft's Engine, APU, Lavatory and Cargo compartments.
Types of Fire Bottles
Two types of fire bottles:
- o-ring, bottles, seals pressure using o-rings
- hermetic bottles seals the pressure through a welding process
A blowdown bottle is a highly pressurized cylinder containing nitrogen, which is used to force open doors or to bring down landing gear.
Dependent on the bottle, five years and other units it is ten years.
Standard Overhauls and Cartridge ("Squibs") Replacement
Fire bottles may require interval replacement of squibs, which depends on service history, manual guidelines, and time.
