Hydrostatic Pressure Testing:

Hydrostatic or hydraulic pressure testing of heat exchangers, pressure vessels, pipework, systems or components etc. may be periodically required following time in service, to prove the ongoing integrity of the plant.

By performing hydrostatic testing, we can provide information on the asset’s suitability for future service. A hydrostatic test is a way in which the plant can be tested for strength and leaks. The test involves filling the vessel or pipe system with a liquid, usually water and pressurisation of the vessel to the specified test pressure. Pressure tightness can be tested by shutting off the supply valve and observing whether there is a pressure loss.

This is conducted by us with calibrated equipment as a third party verification to satisfy insurance company or customer requirements. We have a wealth of over 20 years experience in this field.

We can carry out hydrostatic pressure testing on the following:

  • Shell & tube heat exchangers
  • Commercial food kettles
  • Pipework
  • Air Receivers
  • Calorifiers
  • Hydraulic / Pneumatic Fittings / Assemblies
  • Shot Blast Vessels
  • Boilers
  • Pressure Vessels
