Testing & Certification

Metropolitan’s state of the art test lab is designed to perform hydrostatic-pressure, hydraulic-performance, and hydronic-equipment performance testing on individual items, or large packaged assemblies. Testing is performed on Metropolitan’s packaged-systems, to ensure that the system-integration performance meets the client’s specifications. Pumps or systems can be certified by a registered professional engineer (P.E.). Many different types of pumps, controls, and systems including self-priming pumps, centrifugal pumps, submersible pumps, multi-stage pumps, pressure reducing valves, gas-fired thermal equipment, control systems operating with mechanical components and instrumentation, and more can be tested.
