NCS Fluid Handling Systems Hydrotest projects
In accordance with our initiative in the month of August to share our NCS Fluid Handing Systems Teams experiences during travels and operations on site we had this moment provided to us.
Skyler Hawman leads a crew on NCS Fluid Handling Systems team experts on a storage tank Hydro-test in Northern BC. They caught an opportunity this morning to capture a beautiful BC sunrise between all the rain they have had this past week.
NCS Fluid Handling Systems performs tank hydro-testing as a core service from the beginning back in 2016 and the team has completed well over 100 API 650 and API 653, AWWA and ASME Hydro-tests over the years.
A hydro-test is an integral part of the pre-commissioning of tank assets. The Hydro-Test not only is a pre-operational test of all tank components, but the Hydro-testing of the tank also is a settlement test of the tank pad or tank foundation with a safe test medium such as water which also has a specific gravity greater than the typical hydrocarbon stored in the tanks.
