Hose Testing

Overview: Hose Pressure Testing

At Flextech we take the safety of our customers, staff and general public very seriously. Hoses under pressure can fail in service causing severe injury if they are not correctly assembled or installed. It is for this reason that we have destructive and non-destructive testing procedures to ensure the integrity of each hose under pressure. We operate a technologically adept automated pressure testing equipment system that is capable of running bespoke test cycles with recorded test results to ensure safety and peace of mind. Leaking hose assemblies are not only a risk to employee health and safety but also there is increased risk of environmental contamination and costly production losses due to downtime.

 

At Flextech we operate a number of different hose testing procedures to satisfy the requirements of hose assemblies for their bespoke applications. 

 

  • Hydrostatic Testing: Hoses are pressurised with water to ensure they can hold pressure without leaking.
  • Air-under-water Testing: Hoses are pressurised with air to ensure they can hold pressure without leaking.
  • Electrical Continuity Test:
  • Visual (External) inspection: The hose’ exterior is examined for defects which could potentially cause it to leak. 
  • Visual (Internal) inspection: The hose’ interior is examined for defects which could potentially cause it to leak.
