Hydrostatic & Pneumatic Testing

Astro Pak provides hydrostatic & pneumatic testing of gauges, valves, tubing assemblies, and other components at our California and Florida AS9100 certified cleanrooms.

Hydrostatic & pneumatic testing is essential for systems that operate under pressure, as these systems typically require validation prior to operational start-up.

Hydrostatic testing involves pressurizing a piece of hardware with deionized water (DI H2O) and measuring the pressure by attaching a calibrated gauge between the pump and the hardware.

Comparatively, pneumatic or pneumostatic testing employs the same methodology as hydrostatic testing, but utilizes an inert gas to pressurize the hardware.

Astro Pak can hydrostatic pressure test up to 30,000 psi, and pneumatic pressure test up to 32,000 psi. We test using NIST referenced calibration and certification to ASTM standards. We also routinely complete military standard requirements. Whether you require ASME B 31, KSC C 123H, MIL-STD 1330D, MIL-STD 419D, NFPA 99C and more, we can test your parts.

Hydrostatic & pneumatic testing can be performed together with precision cleaning, passivation, cleanliness certification, or clean assembly operations.

Trust the Experts

With over 60 years of experience, Astro Pak has gained experience and expertise for testing a variety of different fabrication materials including stainless and carbon steel, composites and other exotic alloys and materials. We understand the importance of safety when operating at high pressure and as a result, developed industry leading safety guidelines. Our state-of-the-art testing equipment validates thousands of vessels, pipelines, valves, filters, pumps, and more.  Accordingly, our highly trained technicians and management staff have a keen understanding of ASME, ASTM and other testing specification authorities.
