Pressure Testing Our two pressure testing units allow the assembly team to confidently assess and report on the safe working pressures of hose assemblies including hydraulic, rubber compressor, air breathing and pneumatic. Utilising both the Hydrostatic H2O and the leak detecting Dry Nitrogen water tank, any vital assembly can be delivered with absolute confidence in its performance. Pressure testing is available for kits, hose assemblies and tube manipulation. Capabilities Hydrostatic H2O Testing • 3/16” up to 2” • 5 outlet ports capable of testing to 1500 bar • Test bed – 2000 x 800 x 500 mm

Benefits All hose assemblies can be subjected to the relevant hold test, at twice working pressure (hydraulic) as standard, for twice the amount of time than is recommended by the BFPDA.

Nitrogen Test Unit • 10 outlet ports capable of testing up to 30 bar • Air and water hose assemblies tested submersed in water • Oxygen free nitrogen test

This, combined with a percentage test and the use of quality hose and components, brings security and a reassurance in our pledge to deliver a superior product, safely.

Testing • All testing is performed by fully BFPDA trained personnel • All testing is performed to BS EN ISO 7751





Walform The Walform system enables the production of mechanical cold formed tube ends, reducing any risk of material split experienced via traditional heat manipulation methods. The machine uses a conventional DIN fitting body and a DIN nut which guarantees a leak-proof seal. A lower tightening torque compared to other cutting-ring tube fitting systems enables shorter assembly times and an overall reliable assembly. Capabilities We are able to offer a tube manipulation service in conjunction with Walform ended tubes. The Walform system uses standardised DIN fittings which are recognised worldwide and are available in stainless steel and mild steel. • Onsite evaluation of requirements is available • Cleanliness of the finished tubes is a priority • Capping and bagging comes as standard



Benefits The Viton seal ensures each tube is manufactured to offer increased consistency, safety and reliability compared to conventional methods or re-shaping. The risks that stem from improper assembly of the tubes can be reduced dramatically, creating a safer working environment – machine operation mitigates the risk of leakages normally caused by engineers overtightening the connections. This significantly reduces slip and trips, fire hazards and environmental damage caused by sub-standard assemblies.



Equipment Packages We are able to offer a proficient and economical service, producing a range of bespoke kits which comprise a series of parts, hose and fittings, amalgamated or assembled into kits or sub-assemblies and sold under one part number.
