Hydrostatic Pressure Testing

“Hydrostatic pressure testing” is a diagnostic technique to perform hydrostatic tube test, hydrostatic pipe test, hydro test of hoses, cylinder hydro test, hydro test of pressure vessels & boilers, hydro test of cross country pipe lines, valves, castings, components etc. for leaks or defects. The hydro test pump equipment is used to check the component to be tested, is being filled up with an incompressible liquid, usually water or oil. With the help of a positive displacement reciprocating plunger pump incorporating appropriate safety relief and controls, the pressure of the test component is slowly increased to a predetermined set point and held for a predetermined time. Visual inspection is subsequently performed to determine whether any leakage exists or the pressure reduces from set pressure point.
