Types of Hydrostatic Testing

What is traditional hydrostatic testing? Hydrostatic testing is a way of utilizing pressure decay to measure integrity of pressure containment vessels such as fabricated pipe, BOP stacks, tanks, well-head, pipelines, reactors and much more across various industries. A traditional hydrostatic test uses water as the test medium and four main pieces of equipment: a dual-pen chart recorder, deadweight tester, pressure pump, and a pressure gauge. The test requires the operator to record the ambient…

Why use a Laser Distance Meter

Understanding the Technology A Laser Distance Meter sends a pulse of laser light to the target and measures the time it takes for the reflection to return. For distances up to 30m, the accuracy is ±3mm. On-board processing allows the device to add, subtract, calculate areas and volumes and to triangulate. You can measure distances at a distance. Compared with a good, old-fashioned tape there’s no contest. A Laser Distance Meter wins on every…
