In SCUBA Diving, safety is paramount. SCUBA cylinders should have a visual inspection every 2.5 years and a hydro test every 5 years and without a current test stamp they will not and should not be filled and used.

An IDEST Approved Centre

As an IDEST approved test centre our technicians and facilities have been inspected by IDEST assessors and confirmed to adhere to a recognised Code of Practice CP11:2022 that ensures the highest standards are met.

Idest Approved inspection centre

At our depot in Ramsey, Cambridgeshire we’re equipped to inspect and test most types of cylinders including SCUBA cylinders.

Hydrostatic Testing in Cambridgeshire

With our hydrostatic testing equipment, we can check your cylinders for their reaction to pressure, detect leaks and check that they perform correctly and are safe to use.

Hydrostatic testing works by completely filling the cylinder with water, removing the air in the cylinder, and pressurizing the system higher than the cylinder’s design pressure limit. This test looks for any weaknesses, damage or defaults to the cylinder.

As part of the inspection, valves and other components are also checked for faults and repaired where possible.

Our team will also conduct a full visual inspection and when your cylinder passes its test you will know it is safe to use and it will be returned to you full, IDEST stamped, and with all the relevant paperwork.

For ease, many of our customers choose to send their equipment in to us to be serviced. In this case, once we receive your equipment, we’ll complete the service, fill if required and carefully package your equipment so it can be sent safely back to you, wherever you are in the country.
