Maximator Test conducts hydrostatic Proof Pressure Testing at pressures up to 65,000 psi using water. We can also Proof test to 145,000 psi using hydraulic fluid and up to 11,250 psi using inert gas such as Nitrogen or Helium. Testing is conducted using a plc-controlled and computer regulated test bench, or a manually operated gas booster assembly equipped with NIST traceable pressure gages. The test bench features data acquisition in PDF or CSV format, ISO/IEC 17025 calibrated primary and secondary pressure transducers, and protective safety features. With up to 10-programmable pressure intervals, Maximator Test can assist you with all your Proof Pressure Testing needs.
Programmable pressure intervals offer flexibility to meet your Proof Pressure Testing needs
Proof Pressure Testing is a type of non-destructive pressure testing used to prove the durability of a test sample in a controlled setting. Maximator Test can accommodate the common ASME, SAE, ANSI, etc. requirements and standards needed to certify your components. Samples that typically pass are not subject to deteriorating loads and the components are not intended to be pressurized until they leak or burst.
Benefits of Proof Pressure Testing:
Here is a typical pressure versus time plot that will be provided in a test report. This test component survived the minimum proof pressure of 33,000 psi for 60 seconds without leakage or failure. This is shown in the graph through the consistently flat line at the top and the ‘passed’ test result at the bottom.
Non-destructive testing such as Proof Pressure Testing is common in production settings that require every part to be tested prior to being distributed or used in an assembly. Aerospace, defense, automotive, and medical companies often have sensitive components that need to be tested prior to use. Proof Pressure Testing may give a component the seal of approval you need indicating the component can endure the required workload and will endure a pressure at or above normal operating pressure without deformation, bursting or leaking.
Maximator Test® will provide a comprehensive test report. The report will include:
