SPA AFFF Electrical Bottle Refill & Recertify

SPA AFFF Systems Must Be Inspected and Recertified Every 2 years. This service includes inspection of the bottle, dip tube and firing head, refilling with SPA AFFF fluid, pressurizing to factory-specified pressure with nitrogen, and FIA recertification if applicable. Additional charges may apply if replacement of firing head or other parts is required.

  • Bottles that are up to 2 years past the service due date can be serviced.
  • Bottles that are 2 years and one day past their service due date cannot be serviced (SPA and FIA requirement).
  • Bottles over 5 years old must be hydrostatically tested before service at an extra cost (DOT requirement).*
  • Bottles over 10 years old cannot be serviced (SPA and FIA requirement).
  • Bottles originally designed for gas (Halon / FE-36) or dry chem (powder) cannot be retrofitted with AFFF.

Shipping:

What shipping can I choose for my fire bottle? If it has been discharged, you can ship your bottle to us empty via overnight, 2 or 3 day air. Once your bottle is serviced, DOT regulations will not allow the bottle to be on any aircraft. We must return your fire system bottle via ground shipping ONLY.

Return UPS or FedEx Ground shipping is included with this service.

Discharged or Not Discharged:

If your SPA Technique electrically controlled fire system has run out of time and needs to be re-certified, usually this is all you will need to inspect, service, and certify your fire bottle. Do NOT discharge your fire bottle if not discharged. If you discharged your SPA electrical fire system, either by accident or fear, you will need to either replace or re-arm the electrically controlled firing head. Usually you will just need to re-arm the firing head with SPA-SP-02-001.

Old Bottles:

The older bottle design with a single weld seam around the middle of the bottle fails the new hydrostatic test about 99% of the time. The newer bottles with a weld seam at each end have a much higher passing rate. If you have an older single-weld bottle, it is likely that the DOT will not allow us to refill it. In most cases, we have new replacement bottles in stock and ready to ship.
