Taking A Line Out Of Service Is Serious Business - UPI Has The Right Team To Successfully Perform These Time-Sensitive Projects

Hydrostatic Testing

United Piping Inc. provides full service Hydrostatic Testing services to our clients. These tests range from a few feet of small diameter pipe spools completed in our fabrication facility to several hundred miles of large diameter pipelines crossing multiple state lines.

Hydrostatic testing involves filling a portion of the pipeline with water and using pumps to add additional water in order to pressure test the pipeline for a specified period of time. Hydrostatic testing is used to strength test new pipe at the completion of pipeline installation in the field prior to placing the line in service.

Hydrostatic testing is also used for integrity assurance after a line is in operation. The hydrostatic test establishes the pressure carrying capacity of a pipeline and identifies defects that might affect integrity during operation.
