Hydrostatic Pressure Testing Equipment

Hydrostatic pressure testing equipment is used to ensure pipes, hoses, and tubes are suited to tolerate predetermined pressures.

Hydrostatic pressure testing equipment is normally comprised of pumps, pressure gauges, and relief valves. Pumps in hydrostatic pressure testing equipment should be able to deliver the pressure and water volume needed for desired tests. Gauges, which may be mechanical or may appear on a computer screen, indicate the pressure that test system is under at any given moment and the scale shown on the gauges should exceed the maximum test pressure. Relief values guard against the system becoming over-pressurized, which can damage equipment and lead to injury.
