Regular independent testing and calibration of your hydraulic and pneumatic tools and equipment, ensures that your tooling performs accurately and consistently during use.

In many cases, UK and International standards require that high pressure hydraulic and pneumatic tools are tested and calibrated on a regular basis to comply with all necessary quality and safety criteria. The use of equipment that has not been regularly calibrated, could easily lead to inaccurate loading figures being applied, when compared to the requirements of the application specifications.

For the vast majority of hydraulic tooling, the key indicator is the hydraulic pressure gauge, which we refer to as the “window to the hydraulic system”. Physical loads, whether they be lifting, compression, torque or tension or simply pressure testing, are entirely dependent on the accuracy of the hydraulic pressure gauge readings and the most common form of pressure gauge is a standard dial type gauge, which should comply with EN837-1 European standard.

HES offers an in-house test and calibration service, including the issue of an individual test and calibration certificate, which we recommend is renewed annually or after each major usage. For hydraulic torque and tensioning equipment, it is preferable that tooling is returned with the gauge in order that the integrity of the entire system can be checked and validated.

Improve performance and maintain accuracy

By calibrating your tools with HES at least once a year in the case of bolt tightening tools, and in some cases more often if used extensively.
