Like all things, the tank or cylinder of a fire suppression system or a fire extinguisher corrodes or takes damage over time. It can lose pressure at the seal or develop microscopic cracks that could cause it to malfunction or burst. As its name suggests, hydrotesting (hydrostatic testing) utillizes pressurized water to test the structural integrity of a tank revealing any major flaws, the factor between passing it or scrapping it. We are able to test at low pressure (up to 600 PSI) and high pressure (up to 10,000 PSI) which handles the vast majority of tanks including those requiring DOT certification.
Our service departments operate with the highest integrity, never leaving you with uncertainty about your system, fire extinguishers, or safety products.
