How many gallons of water do you pump per test?


HOT's Dual Flow Valve would allow for a faster fill process and less wear and tear on the high pressure, low volume pump, by enabling the installation of a second water pump on the test trailer.
The Dual Flow Valve gives operators an edge over their competitors as they will be able to conduct hydrostatic tests more quickly as fill time will be reduced. In addition to a reduced maintenance expense and reduced wear and tear on the high pressure, low volume pump.
The valve is designed to allow the low pressure, high volume pump to fill the vessel, and then allow the high pressure, low volume pump to conduct the actual hydrostatic test, with only one hose from the Dual Flow Valve to the well.
Currently, most hydrostatic test trailers are built with one high pressure, low volume water pump. In order to prepare the well for testing, operators use the high pressure, low volume pump to fill the well with water. With the Dual Flow Valve, testing time is increased nearly 8x.
