Air Gun Cylinder Hydrostatic Test

Title

Air Gun Cylinder Hydrostatic Test

An Air Gun Cylinder that is classed as a surface use cylinder requires a Hydrostatic Test every 5 years. For a cylinder to be classed as a surface use bottle, it must be fitted with a surface use valve NOT a scuba diving valve. The distinction between the two valves is easy to identify. A surface use valve is identified by having a built-in gauge and bleed screw.

Serviceable Air Gun Cylinders

We can test all brands and most types of scuba cylinders including steel and aluminium cylinders at our IDEST Test Facility. 

Air Gun Cylinder & Valve Testing

As part of the Air Gun Cylinder Hydrostatic Test, your valve will be serviced and the threads on the neck of the cylinder and the valve will be checked with calibrated thread gauges. Your cylinder's structural integrity will be evaluated and tested at this time. If your air gun cylinder or air gun valve fails inspection or testing we are required by law to render the item unserviceable. This will either be by crushing, burning a hole in the shoulder, or cutting through the neck thread of the cylinder or valve.

Additional Costs

If your cylinder requires Shot Blasting to clear internal corrosion, this is only identifiable once our service technician removes the valve. If this is required, the technician will advise you as soon as possible. There is an additional fee for this service.
