Australian Pump Industries now provide hydrotesters in a single phase electric drive unit, designed for use in areas where an internal combustion engine driven machine cannot operate. By using Australian Pump Industries’ hydrostatic test equipment, Government authorities and contractors can quickly identify leaks and carry out prompt repairs.
According to John Hales from Australian Pump Industries, the company identified a need for a quality hydrostatic tester for use in the general industry, and particularly in food plants where contamination from engine fumes was unacceptable.
The hydrotester from Australian Pump Industries offers pressures up to 30 bar and flows of 33 litres per minute. Powered by a 3 HP single phase electric motor, the Udor positive displacement pump is gearbox driven to provide the right flow or pressure combination.
An integrated fully adjustable controller enables the operator to dial up the right pressure required for the job, while the double gauge system enables monitoring of both pump pressure and line pressure to quickly identify leaks. The machine is trolley mounted for ease of mobility and is simple and safe to use.
The electric drive version of the Australian Pump Industries HTP is suitable for:
- Local government
- Water authorities
- General manufacturing industry
