Industrial Hose Testing and Inspection
Hose inspection and testing is an important part of good hose assembly management, that helps maintain fully functioning, safe and effective operations. By having your hose assemblies inspected and tested, you are able to lower the risk of any unpleasant surprises that often present themselves in the form of water, air & pollution leaks, hose/pipe blockages and kinks.
Should a hose have a defect, it could lead to a range of problems from slowed or halted production/operation and environmental issues, to personal health risks to those who work with or close to hose assemblies. By having a professional undertake a visual inspection and internal inspection, you are able to virtually eliminate any risk at all surrounding hose assemblies, meaning you can focus on effective processes, rather than experiencing the dreaded “down time”.
You are able to get an accurate review on how safe and effective your vital equipment is, through a range of tests and inspection processes being carried out. Various hose testing techniques include; hydrostatic testing, nitrogen testing, helium leak testing and electric continuity testing – each of which are designed to give a thorough test and review of the equipment being tested.
After the inspection and testing process, you will be given details on any faults, damages or any improvements that could be made to your hose assemblies. Should your hose be dangerous or faulty, a professional company will be able to notify you of this and in turn offer you the opportunity to replace it with a new one.
