A Pipe Testing Machine can be of various types, designs and types of applications. It helps you identify problematic water connections and provides the user with maximum peace of mind and reduces pipe downtime. The machine also checks different components of the underground sewer pipes, main drain pipes and concrete sewer pipes and box culverts (enchanted pipe). The spreader beam is detachable from the actuator and the flat bottom bearer is V-shape with an adjustable angle of 150 degrees at horizontal and allows it to pass through at an inclined angle for a minimum of 8.
There are two main components, the clamping pressure and hydrostatic test pressure armature. The clamping pressure armature usually consists of steel pipe that is a single piece of rectangular section and has a threaded fastening device at its end. The pipe is provided with a sealed packing of concrete and water. In this type of machine, the hydrostatic test pressure armature is designed such that it can work properly even with varying water pressures and temperatures.
The hydrostatic testing machine uses a water chamber which contains a rectangular sheet metal pipe placed inside the machine. The metal tube is enclosed by a rectangular steel plate fitted on the outside of the pipe. The water flows through the pipe at normal atmospheric pressure. There are some factors like the pipe construction, pipe lay-out, pipe design, bends in the pipe etc that influence the test results. The measurements of hydraulic tests are taken at various pressure conditions and temperature intervals. There is also another type of hydrostatic testing machine called the pipe-line-high-performance testing machine which is similar to the above type but is designed for high performance pipes.
The hydrostatic testing machine has several other features like the ability to perform both wet and dry types of tests and high precision testing. This equipment has a remote control and a variable speed control with built in low, medium and high performance throttles. Normally the machine is calibrated on the basis of water capacity and temperature. It also has a remote choke and temperature tolerant test pipe. There is a built in valve for the release of pressurized steam.
The external controlled vent valve has the capability to change the pressurization of the high performance unit automatically. It also has the capability to increase or decrease the water flow capacity automatically. The clamping pressure armature is the one responsible for measuring the pressure inside the pipe while measuring the hydrostatic pressure. The hydrostatic pressure is measured by clamping pressure armature with the help of an instrument called the diaphragm or a float. Hydraulic measurements are obtained from both closed and open systems.
If you buy any machine for testing, it is important to check if it is from a reputed company. This will help you avoid any damage to your construction. If the company is reliable then it will be long lasting and will give you good service. A reliable pipe machine dealer can provide you quality products with reasonable prices. This will help you improve the efficiency of your building construction.
