Hose test bench
Hydratron can design and manufacture Hose Test Rigs to suit individual specifications. Pictured are:
(a) A Hydraulic Hose Proof Test Rig capable of testing upto 3 hoses simultaneously at pressures upto 1897 Bar. It has a fully interlocked safety compartment, fast fill facility and dual pressure gauges.
(b) A Hydraulic Hose Pulsation Test Rig which "impulse tests" sample hoses to BS5173; section 102.5: (ISO 6803-1984)
(c) A Fully Automated PLC Controlled Test Rig with dual test compartments and hydraulic clamping.
Hydratron has many years of experience designing and manufacturing hose test rigs to suit many applications.
We can supply proof, burst and impulse test rigs / benches for testing with either gas or liquid at pressures up to 45,000 PSI ( 3,000 Bar )
Single or multi station test manifolds can be fitted mounted within robust safety cabinets. These cabinets are fitted with fully interlocked doors to ensure that pressure cannot be applied to the hoses under test until the doors are fully closed and locked in position.
While simple manually controlled test rigs are readily available for proof testing hoses at local hose distributors, fully PLC controlled machines can also be designed to suit production lines.
Standard instrumentation includes analogue pressure gauges but full data logging facilities can be supplied as an option.
