Hydrostatic testing is a procedure designed to test for strength and leaks in piping systems, boilers, gas cylinders and pressure vessels to confirm theyï¿½ll operate properly, even under extreme conditions. Tests are typically required after repairs and shutdowns to validate equipment can successfully return to operation. Testing is conducted at higher pressures than normal operating pressures, typically up to 150 percent of the designed pressure.
Why pick us for Hydrostatic Testing?
The hydrostatic testing process requires high caution and precision, which only people with decades of experience can execute—fortunately, GIFTS harbors experts who collectively possess decades of experience in this field.
There are certain unsaid norms followed by such experts when it comes to high-pressure testing services. For instance, you can quickly identify the leak’s location if the water has a colorant added to it.
Usually, the strength of the container is tested by measuring its permanent deformation. Hydrostatic testing is a standard method used to test pressure vessels and pipes. Testing every vessel is very important; if ignored, there are chances the container might explode when subjected to high pressure while transporting.
Be it a pipeline, fuel tank, or any container - GIFTS provides one of the best high-pressure testing services in Saudi Arabia.
Initially, a vessel undergoes the Hydrostatic testing process. Then, at regular intervals, these vessels are subjected to the proof pressure test, also known as the modified hydrostatic test. Our team of experts follows stringent regulations while checking any product, alongside making sure that this testing process maintains the durability and safety standards over time.
Walking through the process, here is an overview of what exactly happens during the testing procedure.
The container is filled with an incompressible liquid (water or oil.) Next, the fluid is pressurized to test the pressure, and the container is examined for permanent changes in shape or leakages. Dyes (red or fluorescent) may also be added to the liquid - this helps to identify the leaks easily. The pressure during the test is comparatively higher than that of the standard operating pressure; this is done to ensure safety.
