When adding a nozzle to any vessel, a hydrostatic test must be performed. Carber T.S.E. makes this process much more efficient with our patented Nozzle Test Technology. Our technicians can hydro test your new nozzle connection without filling the entire vessel and without the need to weld a cap to the inside shell. Some vessels simply cannot withstand the complications and weight involved with filling to capacity and pressurization to perform a traditional hydro test. Also, welding a cap inside of some vessels is not a good idea. Each hydro test performed by Carber T.S.E. only uses a minimal amount of test medium, which ensures very accurate results, reduces downtime, is cost efficient.
Our technology is designed to meet ANSI/ASME codes. We keep several common tool sizes readily available, however we realize many nozzle tests are client specific. To complete these tests, Carber T.S.E. will custom manufacture a nozzle test tool to meet specifications identified by the client. A minimal lead time (up to three or four weeks) allows Carber T.S.E. to complete custom jobs in a timely manner to help keep your project on-track.
