Various media flow through the containers, leads, tanks or reactors used in industrial processes and put them under pressure. For smooth processes, it is important to test them after production or during maintenance phases. The hydrostatic pressure test subjects the specimens to tightness and strength tests at pressures of up to 3,000 bar.

URACA supplies the required pressure testing units in many different versions.

drive is electric, manual or operated through internal combustion engine


URACA provides the appropriate technical solutions for these three types of pressure testing:


Static Pressure Test

For the static pressure test, the test specimen must hold a certain test pressure for a given period of time. If the containers are not closed, leakage is balanced to maintain the test pressure. For the pressure tests different pump units from URACA are used.


Bursting Pressure Test

Another application of the hydrostatic pressure test is the burst pressure test. The procedure exposes the specimen to a continuously increasing pressure load until it fails. This determines how far the permitted operating pressure can be exceeded. The results of the bursting pressure test document the safety of pressure vessels.


Cyclic Pressure Test

The cyclic pressure test attempts to simulate typical loads during operation. The process increases the pressure over a certain time and then relieves the specimen again. The pressure change takes place cyclically. Cycles of more than 50,000 are not uncommon. The cyclic pressure test can be used to protect a specimen against failure during operation.


Common applications of pressure testing

Pump units from URACA support the different variants of the pressure test. Thanks to pump capacities of up to 3,000 bar and a huge range of pumps, the test pump units from URACA are extremely versatile. Even customer-specific requirements can be met easily. Typical applications are the testing of containers, pipelines or valves for leak tightness and strength in the chemical or pharmaceutical industry. The pressure test should ensure the process and prevent the leakage of media.


Different drives of the test pump units are possible for the different applications. The pumps can be powered by squirrel cage motors or diesel and petrol combustion engines. Manually operated test pumps are also available.
