Hose Testing

Many hose applications can be hazardous to operating personal or create environmental damage if the hose fails.

  • Do you have a hose management system in place to ensure you minimize any chances of a hose failure?
  • If a hose fails on your site, what will the down time cost be to your business?

HCD recommends that hose assemblies be pressure tested and certified before use and thereafter on a regular basis. We will either test hoses at our facility or at the customer’s site using our mobile hose testing rig.

We test to the appropriate NZ or International Standards and these can include NAHAD (National Association of Hose and Accessories Distributors).


Hose Testing can include:

  • Pressure Testing
  • Electrical Continuity Testing
  • Vacuum Testing
  • Visual Inspections
  • Certification

Once hoses are tested and certified, HCD offers a free listing of the certification and hose detail on its on line hose testing web page.

Each customer is provided with a password to enter a dedicated site listing all hoses tested by HCD. You can view all your hoses, their history and specifications at the click of a button.

The service also includes a customer prompt if the hose is to be re tested by a set time.
