The method establishes the minimum hydrostatic pressure that enduces to a passage of water across the specimen subjected to constant head increment.

Original test surface is of 100 cm2 (UNI 20811), but can be applied on 100 cm2> other reduction flanges in compliance with AFNOR Standards.

The Hydrostatic head tester has a pneumatic closure with activation switch on front panel that assures the perfect tightness of the specimen during the test running.
