How to Test the Tightness of Plumbing Drains With a Pipe Testing Machine

The UTSP-0100 Concrete Pipe Testing Machine is basically designed to perform the task of crushing tests on drain and sewer pipes, concrete pipes, fixtures, precast cones. The machine can also be utilised for underground pipes of a certain length of more than 3000mm. The machine comes with a hydraulic motor and a frame made of steel. The machine produces high pressure steam that can help get rid of lime deposits from inside the pipes. The hydro jet pressure also helps to unclog the pipes and the result of which would be a pipe free of lime deposits.

Pipe Testing Machine

The pipe testing machine produces high quality results when it deals with cracked pipes. The apparatus has a set of high-class instruments and it has built in diagnostic and control systems. When you use this apparatus, you can simply connect the pipes to a single point or many pipes depending upon the requirements of the project and it can perform a controlled vent valve. This controlled vent valve means that the machine can function even in cases where the air supply to the pipe is poor.

The machine has a unique characteristic that helps you know how the pipe is going to react under different conditions. It has the ability to tell you whether the pipe is going to expand or contract during the hydrostatic test pressure. The apparatus has three major sections including clamping pressure, hydrostatic test pressure and the legal analysis section. All the three sections come with their own unique characteristic and can help you to check on the pipe systematically. The hydrostatic test pressure can tell you about the pipe’s resistance to expansion and contraction and the legal analysis section helps you to find out if there have been any violations during the manufacturing process. The clamping pressure can tell you whether the pipe is going to break down at specific locations or not.

The clamping plate 11 has an electrical field that is applied when you clamp the water supply pipe. The electrical current is provided to the pipe through an externally conducted terminal connection. The device has an electronic circuit that is made to respond to the clamping plate’s movement. Whenever the plate moves up or down, the electrical current flows through the pipe until the plate’s bottom surface is touching the earth.

The manufacturer’s manual explains all about the device. It is a fully automatic testing machine and you do not need any supervision to operate it. It works with various diameters and these pipes are generally used for the purpose of carrying water in large quantities. It is recommended for working with the diameters of more than twelve inches. Pipes having smaller diameters should not be used by this apparatus as they may develop blockages soon.

A typical problem with this apparatus occurs when the clamps slip. This makes the plate falls off the fixed surface, which results in the flow of water being misperceived. The flow can become restricted near the end load. If you find this problem with your newly installed pipes, then you must check if the connection between the pipe and the clamp is maintained properly.
