All hoses that are supplied by Alatas will complete a Hydrostatic Test immediately prior to installation, our testing serves the purpose of confirming the integrity of the hose and coupling interface, and ensuring the reinforcement is completely intact.
Hydrostatic testing is essential for high pressure hoses to establish clear, concise records on the quality of installed hoses, their safety and durability under OEM specified operating pressures and procedures.
As well as testing according to OEM specifications and industry standards, where requested we can test to suit customer requirements. Prior to installation all hoses are inspected for leaks, measured and full data recorded. Every hose installed by Alatas will be tagged and given an individual serial number.
Following completion of a hose installation ALATAS supply a Hose Registry Master List that will include the following information:
|• Hose serial number
• Fitting 1
• Fitting 2
• Hose type
• Hose length
• Working Pressure
| • Test pressure
• Length of test
• Tester name
We would then issue an individual test certificate for every tested hose that has been supplied.

We can also offer optional InfoChip technology that provides our customers 24/7 online access to view hose registers, certifications and schedules.
RFID and mobile handhelds are available for on-site hose identification, status, detail & location which in turn is synched with the online register to view hose history through the crane’s lifecycle
