This process involves pumping water into a sealed vessel, or piece of equipment, to generate static pressure over a set period of time to ensure that vessel can handle it’s intended operational functions without leaking or failing. Many common uses are storage tanks, piping systems, gas cylinders and other industrial pressure vessels, while more specialized uses include Blow Out Preventer (BOP) testing and holding backside pressure on a wellbore.
Hydrostatic testing is the most common way to test if there’s a leak in pressure containing equipment and helps maintain safety standards and durability of pipelines or storage vessels over time. Testing is critical for storage and transport equipment because such containers can explode if they fail under pressure.
