All About Types Of Pipe Testing Machine
The foundation of every well-structured concrete plant lies upon the quality of its pipe fitting and handling. Proper inspection of pipelines and pipe joints is essential to avoid catastrophic derailment and resulting loss of life. Concrete pipe fitting machines are mainly composed of a strong frame, a rigid hydraulic motor and high-quality fittings. The main frame is usually made up of two additional rigid columns and carrying casing.
The pipes testing machine has an in-built valve with an adjustable control. This adjustment is primarily to allow the valves to be set for different pipe diameters and loads. A double acting hydraulic actuator fitted on top of the pipe is also incorporated on the upper shaft. The machine usually has an anti-dive system for preventing the natural tendency of this actuator to slightly rotate. The maximum stroke of this double acting hydraulic actuator is 600 mm. Hydraulic load cell is used for exact control and load measurement. The valve body and cover are constructed in such a manner that it offers high flexibility and reliability.
Steel pipe testing machine is utilized for measuring the tensile strength of steel pipes, especially where high tensile strength is required. The steel pipe tester is equipped with the latest techniques including high-resolution digital cameras for video inspection. It incorporates automatic counting of loads using remote sensing resistivity and torsion resistivity measurements. It operates effectively on unplated and plated pipes. Pressure gauges can also be used as output controls.
A pre-tension check valve is another feature found in all Steel Pipe Testing Machine. It allows automatic flow adjustment according to the test parameters. It is automatically transferred between pre-tension and full tension holding tanks. The valve body of this machine features stainless steel linings and stainless steel valves. This machine is fully compliant with All Japan Pipe Breaking & Pipe Repair Standard.
All the above mentioned features are important for efficient and accurate testing of polyethylene and polypropylene pipes. These pipes are used widely in almost all industry sectors. The main purpose of using these pipes is for its special abilities to resist extreme weather conditions. Some other important features of polyethylene and polypropylene pipes include high flexibility, high tensile strength and superior lubricity. All these qualities make these pipes perfect for use in almost all kinds of applications.
All above mentioned types of pipe are generally found in a single unit called power pack. The power pack is generally located at the bottom of the machine. The process of testing starts with the collection of random voltage from the input terminal of the machine. After the voltage is collected the machine undergoes some complex tests on its various components. Once the tests are over the machine is then connected to the output valve. The valve acts as a control valve and allows water to flow into the machine and to exit it.
