Stabilized

Pressure testing in a state in which the initial pressure-decline rate has decreased to within the remanufacturer’s specified rate.

  • NOTE: Pressure decline can be caused by such things as changes in temperature, setting of elastomer seals, or compression of air trapped in the equipment being tested.
