Hydrostatic Pressure Testing

Finding Leaks and Verifying Durability

Hydrostatic Testing or a Leak Test, provides a method for finding leaks or verifying performance and durability in pipes/tubes & confirm they’ll operate properly, even under extreme conditions.

Bharat Steel Pipes & Tubes Pvt. Ltd Performs hydrostatic testing services on pipes & Tubes at our Kalamboli laboratory.

The hydrostatic pressure test is classified as one of our nondestructive testing techniques, meaning the sample is typically not harmed during the test. The hydro test can be completed with pressure up to 12000 PSI depending upon size.


Hydrostatic testing is a type of pressure test that works by completely filling the component with water, removing the air contained within the unit, and pressurizing the system up to 1.5 times the design pressure limit the of the unit. The pressure is then held for a specific amount of time to visually inspect the system for leaks.
