Burst Test is defined by SAE, ISO or any other specification and in its majority, these standards request for new hoses with fittings attached. For instance, SAE J343 defines a time interval for a hydrostatic pressure be applies at constant gradient. During that proposed time interval, a hose under test should pass or fail the burst test. The two most common solutions available in Burst Testers are based iether on an air-drived pump or a different technique which controls Pressure x Time providing a pressure ramp up more constant.
