Hydrostatic Testing Machine

Hydrostatic testing is the most common method employed for testing pipe strength and leaks. It works by completely filling the pipe with liquid, until a specific pressure is reached. The hydro test pressure often exceeds the designed working pressure of the pipe, depending on the exact regulations and code requirements, as applicable. The pressure is then held for a specific period of time to inspect for leaks. Using hydrostatic testing helps maintain safety standards and durability of tube or pipe over time.
