What you need to know about DOT hydrostatic testing
Why do you need hydrostatic testing of your cylinders? It is the most effective way of finding out the structural integrity of the cylinder. Prevent potential injury or other disasters by discovering structurally weak cylinders before they are put into use. The DOT has specifications to regulate the strength and quality of the stainless steel cylinders used for these applications and different types of cylinders will need to undergo hydrostatic testing either every 3, 5, 10, or sometimes 12 years depending upon the age of the cylinder, the contents, the material of the cylinder, and other factors. The experts at General Fire & Safety can help you understand the specifics for your hydrostatic testing needs in Omaha.
