Blueline Testing are a fully INAB Accredited Materials Testing Laboratory and Leading Specialists in The Water & Gas Pipeline Industries.

INAB Accreditation

Blueline Testing are fully accredited with INAB to ISO 17025:2017 and certified to perform multiple types of material testing to the required standard. This includes all testing associated with HDPE pipe welds. A link to our current accreditation can be found here.

Our Services

Blueline Testing Ltd are uniquely positioned to offer the full suite of essential testing services to contractors in the water and gas industries. We offer INAB accredited laboratory services for the testing & failure analysis of HDPE pipe welds & CIPP liners as well as essential on-site services such as pipeline swabbing, pressure testing, chlorination, fire hydrant testing, water sampling and microbiological analysis.

HDPE Pipe Weld Testing

We provide both tensile destructive testing of all types of HDPE pipe welds. This includes destructive testing and ductile & brittle failure mode analysis of butt fusion and electrofsuion welds on all sizes of pipe diameters.

Pipeline Pressure Testing

We have the capability to provide on site pipeline pressure testing of water mains, gas mains and sewer mains. This service is carried out on site by our trained testing engineer.

Pipeline Chlorination

We provide pipe swabbing chlorination, water sampling and microbiological analysis to ensure the watermain is completely free of harmful contaminants and safe to be put into operation. All works carried out in accordance with the Irish Water Code of Practice.

HDPE Pipe Welding

We provide both electrofusion and butt fusion welding of HDPE watermains and wastewater pipelines. Our pipeline welding services can accommodate a wide variety of pipeline sizes up to 900mm diameter.

Water Sampling

We can provide water sampling along with physical, chemical and microbiological analysis for a wide range of potential contaminants in the water.

Fire Hydrant Testing

We provide fire hydrant flow and pressure testing to ensure hydrants are compliant with the required standards and ready in the event of a fire emergency.

CIPP Liner Testing

We can undertake accredited testing on CIPP sewer and drainage liners for leakage and determination of mechanical properties such as composite thickness, maximum stress, strain and short term flexural modulus.

Tensile & Compressive Testing

We can undertake a wide range of tensile and compressive tests on various materials and composites to determine the materials mechanical properties in accordance with the required test standard.

Tank Chlorination

We can undertake a detailed risk assessment of your water system and if needed a full chlorination of the storage tank and distribution pipework to eliminate any risk of bacterial contamination such as legionella.

Destructive Material Testing

We provide specialised destructive material testing and analysis on a wide range of materials, components and assemblies. This testing method is usually used to determine the specific failure point of a material, component and assembly.
