During the hydrostatic test (hydrotest), PME Hoses are straight, not coiled position. The connection fittings of hoses are rated at least the same pressure as the maximum working pressure to be applied. Pressure testing is to show no sign of leaking or coupling movement during the pressure up to test pressure for five (5) minutes.
