Hydrostatic Testing

Hydrostatic Testing

FSP own and operate Australian standards approved test station No.847 for the inspection and testing of Gas cylinders and vessels. We handle all types of Gaseous fire suppression cylinders.


Don't be told your system is out of date, let us put another 10 years of life back into your Gaseous fire suppression system. By conducting the mandatory 5 yearly or 10 yearly hydrostatic pressure test.

Hydrostatic testing is a way in which fire suppression cylinders can be tested for strength and leaks. The test involves filling the vessel with water and pressurization of the vessel to the specified test pressure. Pressure tightness can be tested by shutting off the supply valve and observing whether there is a pressure loss. The location of a leak can be visually identified. Strength is usually tested by measuring permanent deformation of the container. Hydrostatic testing is the most common method employed for testing pressure vessels. Using this test helps maintain safety standards and durability of a vessel over time. Newly manufactured pieces are initially qualified using the hydrostatic test. They are then re-qualified at regular intervals by conducting further  hydrostatic pressure tests .Testing of pressure vessels for transport and storage of gases is very important because such containers can explode if they fail under pressure.

Ensure your Gaseous fire suppression system is compliant and more importantly safe for use. If your company is currently conducting the maintenance of Gaseous fire suppression systems ensure your technicians know when the hydrostatic pressure tests are due to be conducted.
