Hydrostatic Pressure Testing Equipment
MEYER’s Hydrostatic Shop Test Units are engineered to quickly and safely test pressure in BOPS, wellheads, and valves in a controlled shop environment. Electrical, diesel, gas, and air-powered hydrostatic valve testing equipment is available and we offer optional remote panel operation. Our hydrostatic pressure test equipment increases operator safety by removing pressure hazards.

Controlled Hydrostatic Pressure Testing
Hydrostatic pressure testing in a controlled shop environment is important to verify that the components being tested are ready to be transported for installation into the field. With our controlled hydrostatic pressure tests, we verify the current integrity of new and old pipes by detecting any leaks or losses of pressure.
Controlled hydrostatic pressure testing with a shop test unit begins with filling vessels or pipelines with a liquid that is typically dyed to visually verify any leaks or pressure issues. Next, the pressure testing unit pressurizes the component being tested to a certain pressure, testing for any pressure loss. If there is a leak or loss of pressure, the test liquid helps to identify the location of a leak, allowing the technicians to properly diagnose and fix any pressure and leakage issues.
Hydrostatic shop test units are one of the most widely used processes for precisely testing pipes and pressure vessels in the oil and gas industry. Pressure testing in a controlled environment allows for the testing and verification of the quality of equipment, ensuring that each piece of equipment is aligned with safety regulations and protocols before being placed into the field. A controlled testing environment allows for safer hydrostatic pressure testing and more accurate diagnosis of issues, should any problems arise.
