Pipework Inspection & Hydrostatic Testing Witnessing

Adept performs pipework inspections to make sure that your pipes are safe


Faulty piping may cause a loss of product. This can cost both time and money to fix and not to mention potentially causing injury or even environmental damage.

It is critically important to make sure your piping won’t crack or leak its contents. Piping needs to be inspected in the AS/NZS 3788 standard. Adept performs visual pipework inspections and can witness your hydrostatic testing to AS/NZS 3788.

Pipes usually contain compressed air, steam, gases or refrigerants like ammonia and are used in a range of industries such as food manufacturing, chemical plants, wineries, hospitals and more. No matter your business, Adept can provide a range of hydrostatic testing to get the job done. We offer quick turnaround, flexibility and, most importantly, work with you to coordinate your hydrostatic testing needs.


Adept can provide non destructive crack-testing to complete your pipe inspections including

Magnetic particle testing to find and assess any potential cracks on steel piping so you can identify the specific location for any necessary works to be completed. Adept have all the equipment ready to go.

Dye-Penetrant Examinations for piping in a range of materials to assess any potential cracks on your piping so you can identify the specific location for any necessary works to be completed. Adept have all the equipment ready to go.

Hydrostatic test witnessing & reporting

Adept has a range of necessary equipment to administer hydrostatic testing to AS4037 Section 17. We can provide NATA calibrated digital and analogue pressure gauges and other equipment including diesel pumps, hand pumps and hoses/fittings. Our inspectors can witness your hydrostatic testing and provide you with specific hydrostatic reporting.

Vacuum Testing Witnessing

Vacuum testing of industrial pipes and manhole covers are required during commissioning as per the Australian standards.
Adept cannot complete the Vacuum testing but we can witness the vacuum testing and sign off on the results so you can have ease of mind that the testing has been completed thoroughly.
