In order to avoid stressing the hose before bringing it into service, one out of every ten will be subjected to a hydrostatic pressure test and a non-pressurized bending test. If desired, such tests will be conducted at our facility with the presence of a third party or a client witness. Our client requested a bending test with increased water pressure this time in order to analyse more realistic stresses during operation and corroborate our predictions. The hose was a floating hose with an ID of 1000 mm and additional wear rings inside to make it more stiffer. Bending was conducted until an angle of 134°Read More →
