    What is hose pressure testing?

    Hose pressure test is often called hydrostatic test

    The hydrostatic test is the process of filling the hose with the following media: water / glycol or oil, then venting all air out of the hose, isolating the valve and applying hydrostatic pressure at a uniform growth rate. Then use a pressure gauge or pressure sensor to measure the pressure.

    Purpose of hose pressure test:

    The hose pressure test gathers valuable information about hydraulic and pneumatic hoses. Record product, length, working pressure, burst pressure, details. Other details were also checked, such as cracks, leaks, deformation or any other possible signs of failure. Part of the process is also to provide a standard to make it easier to find and replace hydraulic or pneumatic hoses when they reach their end of life or are damaged.

    The hoses are pressure tested, which not only provides customers with convenience, but also ensures that their equipment has a minimum of downtime. In applications where high-pressure hydraulic lines are close to people or sidewalks, most projects will provide test certifications or field tests within their scope to ensure worker safety.

    Benefits of hose pressure testing:

    ● Ensure long service life to ensure reliability and minimize downtime

    ● Ensure the quality of products and materials

    ● Easy to replace and identify hose assemblies

    ● Screen out unqualified hoses
