Hydro Testing on Pipelines

At Alpha, we follow ASME B31.3 protocol when ensuring strength and tightness of the pipe.  We will provide our customers with our professional technicians to perform a hydrostatic test, will furnish all equipment necessary to fill and test the line and the compressors, dryers and pigs to dry the line.  We will also furnish the  launchers and receivers necessary, the  reports and PE certifications for the hydro tests.  In the instance of a leak happening during a hydro test, our technicians can also find those pin-hole leaks while performing the hydro test. 

Hydro testing is accepted as a means of:

  • checking for leaks
  • testing the strength of the pipeline
  • removing defects of a certain size
  • reducing residual stresses
