Destructive and Non-Destructive Weld Testing for Hydrogen Fuel Cells

Your hydrogen fuel cell production should include weld testing to ensure compliance and high operability. It’s not uncommon for power cells such as three-pass heat exchanger hydrogen fuel cells to receive both non-destructive and destructive testing to ensure long-lasting operation. Axenics’ team has decades of experience in the sometimes rigorous demands of welding parts usedRead more

Leak Testing: Helium Testing Versus Hydrostatic Testing

The chemical, medical device, semiconductor, and alternative energy industries rely on a range of components and manufacturing equipment during the course of their business. They regularly utilize components including stainless steel cylinders and canisters, metal pipes and plastic tubes that hold or move chemical materials and compressed gasses. These cylinders and pipes can experience extremeRead more


Pressure Testing: Pneumatic and Hydrostatic Testing

Pressure testing is performed to test the integrity and safety of pressure systems, and to ensure that they are reliable and leak tight. Whenever a new pressure system is built, it must be tested prior to use. In addition, if a pressure system is repaired or altered in any way, it must be re-tested forRead more


What You Need to Know About DOT Hydrostatic Testing

The Department of Transportation employs strict guidelines for any business which transports low-pressure stainless steel cylinders containing compressed gas and other chemical materials. These guidelines are set forth by DOT Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA), and in accordance with the Compressed Gas Association (CGA). About DOT Specifications DOT specifications are designed to regulateRead more


Hydrostatic Testing 101 – Definition, Uses and Benefits

When it comes to testing the integrity of manufacturing products, there are a variety of types of testing that can be performed. Pressure and vacuum testing are commonly used to ensure the integrity of welds. Pressure testing measures from the outside of a component, and vacuum testing measures from the inside of a component. HydrostaticRead more
