Hydrostatic Test Systems: Jacket Method

Jacket Method

For hydrostatic testing of diving and related high pressure cylinders.

The system features a test panel, test jacket and associated equipment.

The system operates by hydrostatically pressurising the cylinder inside the jacket which is also filled with water.

The volumetric displacement of water in the jacket by cylinder expansion is then measured on the panel mounted burette with any permanent expansion subsequently calculated to determine pass/fail.

The jacket and panel are manufactured from mild steel with a hard wearing powder coat finish.

The jacket features a coned lid to ensure no trapped air to achieve the desired level of test accuracy.

Compliant for testing to all relevant standards including BS EN1802, BS EN1968 and BS EN ISO18119 when used with our latest addition HY-PAC (Hydrostatic Pressure Automatic Cut-Off) to meet over–pressure control requirements.
