Hamilton Tanks performs leak testing on all of our tanks to ensure they are leak free after fabrication. We use both air pressure and hydrostatic water pressure to meet the testing requirements of UL, STI, API, & ASME.
When conventional leak testing is not an option, such as on open top tanks or containment dikes, water fill testing is available. This method uses the static weight of water to look for any leaks below liquid level.
Vacuum Testing is available as a form of leak testing on the secondary space of our double-walled tanks. Tanks can also be shipped to site with a vacuum held on the secondary space to eliminate the need for performing on site testing.
Additional forms of Non-Destructive Examination are available as required per code or upon request including X-Rays, Dye Penetrant, Magnetic Particle, and more.
