Automated hydrostatic pressure tester
This automated hydrostatic pressure tester system is used for critical iron parts for oil and gas applications.
The system is operated either locally or remotely via PC or mobile device through a touch screen. The screen provides test status and results. The product is available with or without an integrated cabinet enclosure. It is more commonly provided without the cabinet and simply placed in the test chamber (or field bunker) with the test specimen. This installation method removes high pressure components from the operator’s vicinity, increasing the margin of safety in high pressure testing. The system allows pressure ramping to multiple pressure levels without operator interaction. Scalable from 50 to 60,000 psi, each system is provided with on-board air and fluid conditioning. The extensive filtration increases uptime and simplifies maintenance.
