hydrostatic testing

hydrostatic testing

A method of pressure testing compressed gas cylinders with high-pressure water rather than a compressed gas, such as air. The cylinders are filled with water at a pressure that is higher than that of the compressed gases that they carry and hold this pressure for a specified length of time. Water is used for reasons of safety, as no explosion will occur in the case of failure of the cylinder.
