Rubber hoses can handle a working pressure up to 1800 bar / 26.000 psi and are being used in many industries such as the hose industry, oil & gas industry and automotive industry. To assure the safety and quality of the rubber hoses, they need to be periodically tested with hydrostatic and/or pneumatic tests.
New hoses always need to be tested to assure the safety and quality. A broken, damaged or poor quality hose can lead to severe damage to people, environment and equipment:
- Injuries / fatalities
- Damaged equipment
- Environmental contamination
Tests performed on Rubber hoses by Resato units
At Resato, we can make a distinction of tests between non-destructive and destructive tests that are performed on rubber hoses with our hose testing benches/equipment.
- Static Hydrostatic Test
A proof test is also referred to as a proof test or leak test.
- Volumetric Expansion Test
A volumetric expansion test measures how much the hose expands at a certain pressure level.
- Rotation Measurement Test
The rotation measurement test measures the amount a hose will rotate a certain pressure level.
- Length Measurement Test
A length measurement test measures the length a hose will gain at a certain pressure level.
- Burst Test
A burst test aims to define the maximum pressure until the material fails and the hose bursts.
