is a abc fire extinguisher condemned if it is missing its serial number. What code number is it?
not really seeing anything ?? that requires the serial number
18.104.22.168 Where required by 22.214.171.124, the following inspection procedures shall be in addition to those addressed in 7.2.2:
126.96.36.199 Physical Condition. An annual external visual examination of all fire extinguishers shall be made to detect obvious physical damage, corrosion, or nozzle blockage to verify that the operating instructions are present, legible, and facing forward, and that the HMIS information is present and legible, and to determine if a 6-year interval examination or hydrostatic test is due.
If by chance you encounter the same serial number on other extinguishers of the same manufacturer and same model check with that OEM to see if they know why the same serial number. It just might me a counterfeit extinguisher.
Of course a serial number is recommended for hydro test records
