Tubular testing system

Combined load frame with 1590 tonnes capacity. Tubular test samples can be tested in tension, compression and bending combined with internal and external pressure.

  • Internal pressure with liquid or gas (N2, CO2, …)
  • External liquid pressure
  • Testing temperature from cryogenic to 350°C.
  • Leak integrity testing, buckling testing, structural integrity testing and limit state testing
  • All auxiliary equipment (power tong, bucking unit, bake out, …) for sample preparation of OCTG threaded connections is available

Testing according to

  • API RP 5C5 and ISO 13679 (e.g. CAL IV qualification testing of premium connections)
  • ISO 12835
  • Custom test protocols
