Flanges Welding Hydro-testing
- The flange weld tester is used to hydro-test the integrity of new welds where the Welding Neck or Slip On flange has been added to a pipeline.
- When a new flange has been welded to a pipeline, traditionally the method used to prove the integrity of a weld would involve flooding the pipeline in order to hydro-test. This is time-consuming and costly, and often it is impossible, to fill a whole pipe system with e.g. demineralized water.
- The Flange Weld Tester overcomes this problem because he creates a chamber around the weld and only that chamber is tested.
