Suppose we have such a sentence:
At the time of performing the test, pressure was being maintained between X and y.
Do you think it is possible to leave out "performing" and write "at the time of the test" so that we arrive at "At the time of the test, pressure was being maintained between X and Y"?
I think it is but I would be grateful for your opinions.
The question in the heading should be "at the time of (performing) the test".

Not only possible but better. If you put a participle in there (as written) it dangles. This would be OK though:
Can you see whyAt the time of performing the test, they didn't know what to expect.
