  • Pressure, vibration, and temperature
  • Dynamic fatigue
  • Fluid compatibility
  • Air and liquid cycling
  • Static, circulated or impulse pressure (high and low pressure)
  • Burst tests
  • Vacuum testing
  • Electro dynamic shaker
  • Material identification (fingerprint)
  • Servo-hydraulics capabilities (tensile, strength, vibration, etc.)
  • Material identification for liner and jacket materials
  • 3-A Sanitary Standards testing

Types of rubber and plastic hose products tested in our labs:

  • Tubing / hoses
  • Fittings / couplings
  • Reinforced polymer goods
