In order to test whether a pressure vessel will last a certain lifetime, cyclic pressure tests are performed. We use a RESATO hydraulic pressure testing machine to simulate pressure variations that will occur during the lifetime of a pressure vessel. This test can be done at both ambient and elevated temperatures.
Burst testing reveals the maximum pressure a vessel can withstand. By observing the way and exact place of failure, the design of the pressure vessel can be optimized, if necessary. Burst tests are performed using the RESATO hydraulic pressure testing machine.
