Shelf Life

The inspection and maintenance requirements for gauged fire extinguishers such as model C354TS, C352TS and A344T per NFPA 10 call for a 6-year maintenance and a 12-year hydrostatic test calculated from the month and year of manufacture. As long as the extinguisher undergoes the maintenance and passes the test it can remain in service.

H3R Aviation calculates the remaining shelf life of its gauged fire extinguishers by comparing the timing of the 6-year maintenance to the month and year of manufacture per the following formula.

(72 months - Months elapsed from manufacture date) / 72 months = Shelf life remaining

For example, if an extinguisher was manufactured in February of 2009 and the current month is June 2009, it has a remaining shelf life of 94%.

(72 months - 4 months) / 72 months = 94%

Reviews

A little pricey, BUT a very important piece of equipment. I was going to keep an old extinguisher like this one I have had for 15 years, but I decided the piece of mind I would get knowing I had a newer better piece of safety equipment on board was worth the money. Easy ordering and fast shipping keeps me coming back to Aircraft Spruce.

AircraftSpruce still sells the RTA400 model which is a real surprise. I found mine empty after a year and called the Distributor who said they no longer sell them even though they are still available in the catalog. The A344T is a better alternative as it has a pressure indicator on it. Do not buy the RTA400!

Really hefty little first extinguisher. Top quality. Pilot Shop had a good price on it and provided rapid delivery.

I got this to replace an RT A600. That one I really liked for its compact size, but unfortunately one day I went to remove it and it was completely empty. Thats a lot of money to spend for a product that has a plastic top that easily pops off and the thing drains itself. This one is much higher quality from the looks of it. The unfortunate thing is that while I would like to buy a 2nd one, my other plane has an RT A400 that just fits in the position its in, and this particular design is not made in one thats similar size to the RT A400. I dont have room for this in the best location in the other aircraft. Hopefully they will make a shorter/smaller one at some point.

Purchased this to replace the RT A400 model in my homebuilt aircraft. Apparently, the RT A400 is discontinued because it was leaking. When I read this, I weighted mine and indeed, it was empty. This said, the A3444T seems higher quality. It is definitely heavier and the reason for the 5 stars is that it fit the same hole pattern as the RT A400, which made it an easy installation.

Appears to be a quality product. Hopefully I will never need to find out. Moved from an inexpensive extinguisher with no gauge to this one.
