Hydrostatic H2O & Dry Nitrogen Pressure Testing


Our two in-house pressure testing units allow the assembly team to confidently assess and report on the safe working pressures of a variety of hose assemblies including hydraulic, rubber compressor, air breathing and pneumatic. Utilising both the Hydrostatic H2O and the leak detecting Dry Nitrogen water tank, any vital assembly can be delivered with absolute confidence in its performance. Pressure testing is available for kits, hose assemblies and tube manipulation.

Guaranteed safety… every time

As with any ‘on task’ application of hose assemblies, pressure testing is also a high-risk activity. When applying stored energy to an assembly, especially for the first time, there is a potential for injury through the rapid escape of gas or liquid following catastrophic failure of the hose or fittings. In-house pressure testing ensures confidence and peace of mind in all FTUK assembled products.

Benefits
Having an in-house testing facility means that all hose assemblies can be subjected to the relevant hold test at twice working pressure (hydraulic) as standard, for twice the amount of time than is recommended by the BFPDA. This, combined with a percentage test and the use of quality hose and components, brings security and a reassurance in FTUK’s pledge to deliver a superior product, safely.
