What Is Hydrostatic Testing?
Due to extensive use, age, or adverse conditions, the structural integrity of gas cylinders can become compromised. In these situations, the cylinder may fail, resulting in damage, property loss, health hazards, and other issues. Hydrostatic testing is the required method of testing the integrity of pressurized cylinders. The test uses pressure stress testing to locate any signs of weakness, failure to hold up to high pressure levels, and any leaks within the cylinder.
How often a cylinder requires hydrostatic testing depends upon the use of the cylinder, how often the cylinder is used, what it contains, and the OEM rating of the cylinder. These factors determine pressure testing requirements that usually fall into one of these time frame categories:
- 5-year testing
- 10-year testing
- 12-year testing
- Additional or circumstantial testing
Liberty Fire Solutions offers DOT-approved testing services that can test your cylinders and determine if they are suitable for further use. If they prove to be sound, we will update all labeling to reflect DOT certification for your business.
