Work in progress... Hydrotest of a pressure vessel
A hydrotest / hydro pressure test / hydrostatic test is among others a standard NDT (Non Destructive Test) and involves filling the pressure vessel with water to test for strength and leaks.

Deprest and sustainability
Sustainability is a key value at Deprest.
We naturally try to apply this value at company level like everyone else by, among other things
- generating our own energy as much as possible by means of solar panels
- limiting our energy consumption
- sorting our waste – in this respect Deprest is obviously fortunate with its waste flow, since most of our waste (metal scrap) is 100% recyclable.
In addition to these traditional ways of contributing to sustainability, the projects we work on are very often intended for sustainable projects. We regularly manufacture parts for wind farms, we make sump tanks for ships (where all waste is collected, while in the past it was simply dumped into the sea). As many of our tanks are used to make processes cleaner, we also contribute indirectly to a better, more sustainable world.

Filter Baskets in the spotlight
The purpose of this article is to put the production of industrial filters (which are often small pressure vessels) and more specifically associated filter baskets in the spotlight.
As a rule, these filter baskets need to be very sturdy given the flow rates, pressures (and the occasional less gentle treatment by technicians) they have to withstand. This means that, notably when assessing quotations, you should make sure that you are ‘comparing apples with apples’, so to speak.
The difference between a light and a sturdy basket version can, for example, determine whether it can be used for just 6 months or last for years.
