Hydrostatic Testing & Recertification in Orange County for Beverage and Industrial Tanks

                 

Giant CO2 offers convenient and affordable hydrostatic testing and certification. All of our hydro-testing is performed by Orange County Cylinder Requalification (OCCR) and is available for residential, commercial, and industrial tanks up to 100 pounds. Tanks can be dropped off Monday through Friday by appointment only. For commercial clients with a large number of tanks, we can arrange for pickup and delivery. Call for a quote.

A hydrostatic test, or "hydro-test," verifies that a tank is in good condition and able to withstand the pressure of holding compressed gas. Whether for personal, commercial, or industrial use, the California DOT (Department of Transportation) requires that all aluminum and steel cylinders used for compressed gas pass a hydrostatic test every five years. If a tank's hydrotest date is past the five years, it is illegal to refill the bottle until it has been tested. To check if your tank is due for recertification, check the date stamped near its neck. Requalification is also recommended anytime that the cylinder's integrity is suspect (such as after it has been dropped, exposed to excessive heat, left unused for a few years, or has excessive rust or corrosion).

       

Hydro-testing generally takes about a week. If your tank passes the test, we’ll requalify and restamp it, certifying it for another five years. Once it has been requalified, it is ready to be filled. Upon request, we can fill it with CO2, Nitrogen, or Beer Gas before returning it to you. Payment is required upfront; we accept all major credit cards.
