Australian Pump Industries have launched a 7,000psi diesel driven hydrotest pump kit called the Aussie Raptor HTP. The machine achieves flows of up to 13 litres per minute. The system is designed with a big Udor 7,000psi Penta Quintuplex stainless steel pump style pump.
The Penta Quintuplex design utilises a machined stainless steel head with big oil filled crank case for cool running. The pump is designed to run at 1450rpm representing a major breakthrough in high pressure pump technology by offering the ability to test pipelines, compressors and pumps in the oil and gas industry at pressures of up to 7,300psi.
The machine is powered by a Hatz air cooled industrial diesel engine and comes mounted in a heavy duty galvanised steel frame on 4 big pneumatic tyred steel wheels for ease of manoeuvrability on site. Like all Aussie HTP hydrostatic test equipment, the new Raptor comes with fully adjustable pressure unloader to enable the operator to set the pressure required.
The double gauge system enables the operator to lock off the test lines and monitor both pump and line pressures at the same time. Designed originally for Middle East customers, the Raptor HTP is now being used in Australia.
