Hydrostatic Testing

Hydrostatic testing is an intrinsic part of the container manufacturing process. Large DOT container manufacturing specifications require volumetric hydrotesting, and water jacket hydrotesting has particular advantages, for example, 49CFR Part 173.302 permits cylinders that undergo this testing to be marked for 110% pressure service providing other conditions are met. In addition, DOT retesting requirements permit longer retest intervals when the water jacket method is used for initial retesting. All of these advantages are a direct result of the CP Industries’ hydrostatic testing process and the company can also perform hydrostatic proof pressure testing.
