Kennards Hire announces a new specialist business for customers requiring certified, highly accurate measuring, testing and inspecting equipment.
The new Kennards Hire Test & Measure will carry the highly accurate NATA calibrated hydrostatic testing equipment to ensure that all the machinery and equipment available for hire meet stringent compliance requirements.
Kennards Hire Test & Measure allows clients to access specialised testing equipment on demand, rather than investing large capital outlay to acquire equipment that may only be used a few times a year.
Testing equipment is used extensively throughout diverse industries including mining, electrical, oil, gas and civil construction.
Equipment available from Kennards Hire Test & Measure ranges from hydrostatic test pumps, anchor testers and non-invasive smoke machines to an extensive array of handheld devices.
One of the first projects to utilise the new equipment was a gold mine in the regional hub of Dubbo NSW, approximately 400km north-west of Sydney. A NATA certified gauge on the hydrostatic test pump and kit required by the construction supervisor at the mine was supplied by Kennards Hire Dubbo along with a calibration certificate.
The hydrostatic test pump and kit features a heavy duty frame, hydraulic quick-disconnect brass swivel fitting, an inline strainer, and a silicone filled test gauge with stainless steel case. The hydrostatic test pump and kit was connected to the pipeline and used to confirm that the specified pressure was achieved as well as check for leaks around flanges and joints.
