Technician Performing Hydro Testing
Applied Technical Services conducts hydro testing to verify the structural integrity and safety of pressure systems and vessels.

Hydro Testing

Hydro testing, also known as hydrostatic testing, is both a destructive and a nondestructive testing method used to monitor a pressure system’s ability to retain water without the potential of ruptures or leaks. This process begins by filling the subject with a liquid, typically water. Once filled to maximum capacity, one of our certified hydrostatic testing experts use equipment to pressurize the vessel, and then performs a visual inspection on the subject to detect leaks. This testing method requires that operations temporarily halt, as technicians cannot conduct this method while the pressure system is in service. Hydrostatic testing is a highly accurate method used to determine compliance with industry safety standards and is often employed to check that a recently repaired pressure system or component is ready to return to service. Hydrostatic testing is usually required every three to five years, depending on the type of system or component.
