Our purpose is to treat our customers to a service above & beyond.  As in, showing up to a job-site when requested and providing peace of mind that the job is done efficiently & correctly.

Hydro-static testing on poly, flexpipe, flexsteel, carbon steel, facilities and pipeline.  


The purpose of hydro-static testing a pipeline is to either eliminate any defect that might threaten its ability to sustain its maximum operating pressure or to show that none exists.

Hydro-static testing is universally known and accepted as a means of demonstrating the fitness of a pressurized component for service.  After a test, a pipeline or pressure vessel can be expected to safely contain its intended operating pressure. The confidence level that a pipeline or pressure vessel is fit for safe service increases as the ratio of test pressure to operating pressure increases. This highly beneficial aspect of hydro-static testing applies not only to a new component to be placed in service for the first time.  A similar benefit accrues to an in-service component if that component is taken out of service after a period of time and subjected to a hydro-static test. A “re-validation” test of the latter type assures either that no significant time dependent deterioration of the component has taken place or that any segment that has been significantly degraded will be revealed and eliminated.  (ex;by John F.
