Data is key
High-pressure hose testing is often required to comply with industry standards, regulations, and certifications. These standards specify the minimum pressure levels, duration, and acceptance criteria for hose testing, ensuring consistent quality and performance across the market.
With advances in technology, automated and computer-controlled testing systems have become prevalent in the hose test market. These systems provide accurate pressure control, data monitoring, and analysis capabilities, enhancing testing efficiency and reliability.
Hose pressure testing
Hose pressure testing procedures involve many small steps. The
process begins with the transportation of the hose, goes over into the
test phase, and ends with dismantling the hose. In total, we divide the
hose pressure testing phase into eight single steps: Transport, mounting,
prefilling & de-airing, pressure build-up, stabilization time, isolation/test
phase, pressure relief/bleeding, and dismantling.
The generation of a certificate is the result of a hose pressure test.
The certificate shows whether the hose has met predefined quality
standards, or not. A detailed report provides precise information about
the period between the pressure build-up and relief. This process can be
done manually but automated solutions provide time savings and reduce
Maintenance and calibration
Regular maintenance and calibration of the hose test benches is
necessary to keep up the life-and uptime of the unit. Depending on the
usage rate and utilized pressures, it is advised to perform maintenance
and calibration activities once a year.
