CARBER Nozzle Testing

CARBER Nozzle Testing is an innovative hydrotesting procedure for testing new nozzles on any vessel.

  • Significantly reduces downtime required to test nozzle connections by only testing area of the weld.
  • Low volumes of test medium required make reclamation hazard free & cost efficient, assure very accurate test results and provide for a safe environment in which to conduct tests.
  • Lightweight tooling eliminates the requirements for heavy lifting equipment to put the testing equipment in place.
  • Eliminates the need to fill the entire vessel with medium thus significantly reducing downtime and medium costs.


When adding a nozzle to any vessel, a hydrostatic test must be performed. CARBER makes this process much more efficient with our patented Nozzle Test Technology. Our technicians can hydrotest your new nozzle connection without filling the entire vessel and without the need to weld a cap to the inside shell.  Each hydrotest performed by CARBER only uses a minimal amount of test medium, which ensures very accurate results, reduces downtime, and makes reclamation nearly hazard free and cost efficient.

CARBER also has a patented split-cap design nozzle test tool to accommodate man-ways.
