The burst test is primarily conducted on bellows. Normally, hydraulic pressure is slowly increased until failure occurs. Based on the burst test results, a safety factor is applied. This establishes the ultimate pressure rating.

Piping Engineering Training – The PT&P Process Webinar
Join us for introductory training on various types of pipe supports, expansion joints, vibration solutions, dynamic restraints, and more. We will discuss manufacturing systems for mass customization, volume production, rapid delivery, flexibility, and corrosion management. We will also go over pipe stress, material properties/selection, and contact corrosion. Learn about our workflows, turnaround strategy, and see real issues covered in some of our case studies. Lastly, view a new technology hitting the industry with data and examples.
This presentation has been given by PT&P to over 30 operating plants this year and refined with the input of Fixed Equipment Engineering, Maintenance, and Inspection teams. The PT&P expert will draw on this experience to provide practical insights into the challenges facing operating plants in their piping systems.
