In order to provide comprehensive pre-commissioning services to its customers, B&W performs Hydrostatic Testing services to verify the integrity of piping systems, vessels, boilers and HRSGs.
A hydrostatic test is performed to ensure the structural integrity of the vessel or piping system is secure for testing and operation. The test involves filling the vessel or system with a liquid, usually water, which may be dyed to aid in visual leak detection, and pressurization to the specified test pressure. Pressure tightness can be tested by shutting off the supply valve and observing and recording whether there is a pressure loss.
Our team designs an integrated hydrotesting and cleaning program that ensures these construction activities only happen once, which eliminates many wasted man-hours and unnecessary costs. We employ highly trained and qualified personnel to ensure hydrotests are performed safely and effectively. In addition, our hydrotests are accompanied by comprehensive engineering procedures to ensure all safety protocols are followed and the correct equipment is provided to execute the work.
