Hose Testing

WG offer a mobile on site hose testing service which saves time and fuel costs to our customers. Our trained staff will travel to the site, and with specialist equipment will pressure test the hoses to ensure that they are in a safe working order. Any pipes which fail can be assembled on the spot and replaced immediately. Hoses that pass the test are given a new WG code and a certificate, therefore ensuring all information is up to date. Method statements and Health and Safety guidelines are issued to comply with the relevant site's own procedures.

The WG code is engraved onto one of the securing bands at one end of the hose. The expiry date is then engraved on the second band at the same end. This gives a quick visual guide to the age of the hose. Expiry dates are 12 months from the time of a new hose being issued. We also use other methods of identification including tags and colour coding ties.

All hoses which are assembled in WG's hose workshop are tested using air pressure or water pressure techniques.

WG also offer an online certification system whereby a customer is given access to a database of all the hoses which are tested to their vehicles. A unique username and password are allocated so that our clients can access information concerning a pipe on a certain tank or a land based application. This gives our customer the confidence that compliance procedures are in place, so can pass that confidence onto their clients.
