Hose Testing

Ref: MDG41 –

“Hose assembly proof testing minimises assembly related errors which may cause premature failure of the hose assembly in the operating environment.

Hose assembly testing, where required, should be carried out in accordance with ISO 6605 or SAE J343 or AS 1180.5.

All hose assemblies which involve high risk as defined by risk assessment (see Clause 2.3) should be proof tested at two times the maximum working pressure. The test pressure should be held for a period of 30 to 60 seconds. There should be no indication of leakage or failure.”

Hardy Spicer has modern test facilities, located in various branches, to enable testing of hose assemblies to the relevant standards.

Hoses can be tested individually, or in batches, in line with customers’ requirements.

All tested hoses are issued with an individually numbered test certificate.
