Stamping Manufactured Year of the Chubb fire extinguisher
« on: December 06, 2018, 06:27:07 AM »
Hi all,

Please advise me how I can find the manufactured year of the Chubb fire extinguisher (Dry Powder) on the cylinder. And which standard mention to stamping symbols?
Thanks all.

Depends on which Country the Chubb branded product was sold in and how long ago it was made.

If it's a UK market model from the EN3 era it's usually along the metal skirt, which on the 3, 6 & 9 kilo may mean removing the plastic skirt.

On the 1 & 2kg models the valve usually has the manufacture date on it too.
