Hydro Testing a Steam Boiler — The Boiling Point

Today on the Boiling Point, Ritchie talks with Steven about hydro testing a steam boiler.

It is very important to have proper seals on your tubes, flanges, connections, etc. and hydro testing a boiler is one way of doing this. Flooding the boiler with water and bringing it up to pressure in this controlled test is a safe way to check that your boiler is ready to be fired and put into production. Any pinhole leaks and cracks can be seen safely with this testing rather than catastrophically if the boiler was in use and not tested.

Be sure to watch the video for more information on hydro testing a boiler.
