High Pressure Hydrotester, Low Pressure Hydrotester, & Test Jackets
The high pressure hydrotest unit is used in hydrotesting high pressure cylinders, such as oxygen, nitrogen, co2, helium, scba (self contained breathing air), & scuba (self contained underwater breathing air) tanks. All high pressure cylinders must be tested in maximum 5 year intervals if there are no physical changes to the cylinder, (some cylinders must be tested at 3 year intervals), and if physical damage or other specifications are present they may qualify for re-test sooner then the specifications demand. This hydro tester is authorized by the Department of Transportation per our certification requirements.
The low pressure hydrotester & test jacket is used to hydro-test low pressure (dry chemical, water press, class K, etc) fire extinguishers. The cabinet is a safety precaution to protect from the expansion of the shell during testing in the event of having a cylinder not pass.
