SCBA Cylinder Hydro Tests – How Often?

Breathing apparatus is essential life support equipment and must be maintained at the highest level. Each manufacturer provides a service schedule for their devices.

AS2030 and AS2337 require specific tests at intervals specific to the construction of the cylinder to take place anything from every 12 months to up to five years apart. These tests have to undertaken at an approved and accredited test centre.

There is a requirement for cylinders to be marked with specific indications that this has been completed.

Breathing Air cylinders such as those fitted to Self Contained Breathing Air (SCBA) systems are required to have regular hydrostatic tests to ensure the integrity of the cylinder walls at regular intervals, typically 3 years (DOT) or 5 years.
