IKM Ocean Team’s hydrostatic pressure testing is a certified procedure used to verify that fluid pressure vessels (e.g. heat exchangers, coolers, separators, hydrocyclones, pig launchers and receivers, pipe systems, etc.) do not leak or have manufacturing flaws.
Hydrostatic pressure testing of pressure vessels is crucial for safety and durability under operating pressure. However, our hydrostatic pressure testing method is also capable of identifying leaks in low-pressure vessels and devices such as pipes and plumbing. In many projects where IKM Ocean Team is responsible for oil flushing, chemical cleaning or PVI (pressure vessel inspection), our customers also ask us to perform hydrostatic pressure testing since identical installation work is required and cost savings can thus be obtained.
All hydrostatic pressure testing procedures and documentation produced by IKM Ocean Team are in a format suitable for submission to the relevant certification authority. Tasks for which IKM Ocean Team are responsible are always performed in accordance with customer requirements and IKM Ocean Team safety guidelines and procedures.
