hydraulic testing of engineering components

The following three examples demonstrate TQC's expertise in the area of hydraulic testing of engineering components:

burst test

Destruction Testing aluminium gas bottles which need to withstand pressures of up to 1000 bar.  The test was achieved safely by pressurising with water whilst the cylinder is contained within a water jacket.  The water is pumped into the cylinder and the pressure then monitored for any change.
