The design of the high pressure hydrostatic testers from Australian Pump Industries incorporates a sturdy, galvanised four wheel trolley with large pneumatic tyres. The Bertolini triplex piston pumps use up to 350 BAR and the Udor Quintuplex piston pumps are for the 500 BAR models.
These hydrostatic testers can handle a wide range of tests and are easy to service. It is also simple to check for leaks on these machines and they are easy to move around on-site. They have a fast pump up to pressure and it is a straightforward operation for the user to adjust the tester to the required pressure.
The machines have big flows up to 20 lpm and also feature a simple piston pump design. Other design features include a double pressure gauge with lock off valve, integrated control valves and gear box drive.
High pressure hydrostatic testers are currently used for the following applications:
- Hydrostatic testing of boilers, pumps, valves and fire mains
- Leak detection in water pipelines
- Oil or gas pipeline testing
