The UTSP 0250 Concrete Pipe Testing Machine is designed to test drainage, sewer and drain pipes, drainage pipes and precast concrete pipes. The machine is capable of testing pipes with a minimum depth of up to 1000mm. The machine consists mainly of a steel frame with a powerful hydraulic motor. It also contains digital controls which are used to control the machine. This equipment is capable of testing both the interior and exterior pipes and can ensure that the pipe is free of blocks, creosote, rust, and other obstructions.
This PVC pipe testing machine offers several advantages over the traditional tester. This equipment uses controlled vent valve means to maintain proper combustion pressures while the process of testing is in progress. Furthermore, the machine has the ability to maintain high pressure regardless of the change in environmental conditions. It also has the ability to withstand extreme cold, extreme heat and the reverse effect of increasing pressure. All these features make the machine a reliable source of accurate results.
Another essential quality of this PVC hydrostatic testing machine is that it uses high-pressure water to strike the pipe and generate hydrostatic pressure. This characteristic enables the machine to generate the tensile stresses required to break the existing pipelines. This results in the generation of cracks and fissures in the pipe which increase in diameter with time. This is very useful to companies involved in the construction and repair of pipelines and drains.
The high-performance plastic pipe testing machine comes with three main series, each consisting of fifteen machines. The first series consists of twenty machines. These carry out the function of the internal pressure and hydrostatic testing. The next series consists of machines that carry out both functions. The final series consists of twelve machines. These carry out both tasks and can be operated by a single switch.
The main function of these hydrostatic testing machines is to detect the existence of a crack or any other flaw in the pipe. Depending on the nature of the liquids and the pipe construction, the machine is capable of detecting cracks between steel bars, concrete, pipe or any such material. The machine is also capable of detecting internal pressure. If any pipe leakage occurs inside the machine, the operator will be able to easily determine whether the leak is due to the clamping force or not.
There are various types of pipes, which can be tested using this machine. Steel, brass, copper, plastic and aluminium pipes can all be tested and their diameters determined. The test output will be helpful in determining the ideal diameter for the particular pipe to be used. However, when pipes are of different diameters, special tools need to be used in fitting the pipes.
