Whether your testing catheters, balloons, tubing, fittings, or valves, Crescent Design’s HBLT is the only choice for hydraulic pressure testing.
The HBLT is available is 8 different models with maximum pressure ranging from 25 – 5000 psi. This tabletop, computer-controlled device delivers pressurized distilled water during precisely controlled, repeatable tests. The HBLT has been in production since 1994 and has become the world -wide quality standard for hydraulically testing a wide range of devices. It is the medical industry’s #1 choice for all ISO 10555 testing, AQL testing, and R&D testing needs.
Crescent Design’s Balloon Compliance Test Fixture (CTF) uses a standard, low-force Mitutoyo Digimatic gauge for taking contact diameter measurements or a Keyence LS Optical Micrometers for non-contact diameter measurements to meet balloon compliance testing requirements such as ISO 25539, ISO10555 or FDA-1545.
Our team will work with you to identify the best HBLT to meet your testing needs.Compare HBLT ModelsHydraulic vs. Pneumatic TestingContact a Team Member

Machine Solutions offers a sophisticated system for destructive and nondestructive hydraulic (distilled water) pressure testing angioplasty balloons as well as other medical devices
The more you can automate the more you can save, and that’s what our Smart Manifold helps you to do.
Connect our Smart Manifold to our Hydraulic Burst Leak Tester (HBLT) and you can do unattended testing of one to ten parts simultaneously. With three basic testing modes to choose from, the Smart Manifold lets you pressurize all selected ports simultaneously, or pressurize each selected port individually, or pressurize only one port at a time. Plus, you can add our Pressure Manager© Windows-based program to your system to operate the HBLT by remote control and to program tests that ordinarily couldn’t be done with just the HBLT alone.\
So, if you’re looking for an easy, cost-effective way to automate your testing capabilities, connect the Smart Manifold to your HBLT.
The Vacuum Purge Adapter (VPA) is another piece in the puzzle for completely automating burst and leak testing with the HBLT. When interfaced with the HBLT and Smart Manifold, the VPA allows for the fully automatic purging/prepping of catheters. The VPA employs a powerful vacuum pump to remove air from the attached product, readying the product for hydraulic testing. The need to manually prep the catheters with a syringe is eliminated.
Balloon compliance testing compares balloon pressure to resulting balloon diameter across a full range of pressure up to 25% above rates burst pressure. Our Balloon Compliance Test Fixture (CTF) allows for the automatic contact measurement of products while submerged in a water bath. A standard, low-force Mitutoyo Digimatic gauge is mounted on an adjustable stand that will accommodate water baths of various depths. The Balloon Compliance Test fixturing was designed to accommodate a wide range of balloon product types and sizes and all components are corrosion resistant.
Crescent Design’s non-contact, single point diameter measurement systems employ a Keyence Optical Micrometer mounted to a temperature-controlled water bath with specially designed product fixturing.
The Positioning Controller system offers non-contact, multi-point diameter measurement readings during balloon compliance testing. The Positioning Controller consists of a water bath and Keyence LS7070 micrometer mounted to a translation stage that allows the micrometer to be positioned horizontally. It is available with a 14-inch bath (8 inches of travel) or a 20-inch bath (14 inches of travel).
Pressure Manager© is a Windows® based program that can manage the setup, operation and data collection of the Crescent Design Hydraulic Burst Leak Tester (HBLT). The program allows a user to quickly enter, edit and run tests or scripts. While executing a test or script, Pressure Manager© displays a graph of the current pressure, maximum pressure, and one of four volume traces. In addition, Pressure Manager allows the user to save the data collected for later analysis or graphing.
Pressure Manager provides these four primary advantages over standalone HBLT operations.
The Machine Solutions Lab in Flagstaff is equipped with a full HBLT system that can be used to provide contract testing and product characterization services. We also welcome customers to visit our lab and use the HBLT.
