ARDL’s hose testing laboratory is capable of custom impulse testing and high pressure burst testing polymeric hoses. We can also assist in developing new hose compounds to meet specifications and ensure quality products with consistent performance.
High Pressure Hose Burst Testing
ARDL can test the burst pressure of your hose, up to 44,000 psi, at ambient fluid temperatures to ensure desired performance. The air-driven SC plunger pump can test samples with a variety of fluid types.
High Pressure Hose Impulse Testing
Impulse pressure on polymeric hoses continues to increase as field applications become ever more demanding. ARDL can build unique test stands based on your pressure, temperature and fluid requirements. Please contact us for more information. Common test fluids include EG solutions, automatic transmission fluids and water.
