Hydrostatic testing on hose assemblies

We conduct hydrostatic tests to validate the capacity of a hydraulic or industrial hose to function without failure at pressures up to 20% above its operating pressure. Tests are conducted at a specified pressure and for a given interval of time. Test are recorded to validate the absence of any variation in pressure.

Moreover, our testing validates that the hose assembly is leak-proof and resistant to pressure, and that the fittings were correctly installed so as to make sure they will resist perfectly when in operation.

Why should you ask us to test your hose assemblies?

  • Investigate what is causing repeat failures of your hose assemblies in operating conditions
  • Validate quality and safety of your hose and rigid piping assemblies
  • Validate reliability of your hydraulic system or equipment under pressure
  • Validate that your assembly is leak-proof
  • Ensure the safety of your work site
  • Certify your equipment according to standards
