Dive into Accuracy: The VEVOR Hydraulic Pressure Test Kit Advantage

One can test the pressure in hydraulic systems and equipment using hydraulic pressure kits to ensure they are dependable and safe. A hose and gauge are connected to the hydraulic system of the machine or item being tested for hydraulic pressure test kits to function.

Unplugging one of the hydraulic lines and inserting the hose and meter from the pressure kit will allow you to test your equipment. Known for its state-of-the-art technology and uncompromising dependability, VEVOR becomes your reliable ally in the search for perfect hydraulic measurements.

What is Hydraulic Pressure Testing?

The durability, integrity, and dependability of pipes, vessels, and other parts intended to hold fluids or gases are assessed through hydrostatic pressure testing, also known as hydraulic pressure testing.

The system, pipework, and other parts will be installed, examined, and then filled with a liquid (usually water) and pressed to a predetermined or calculated level. This pressure will typically be higher than the system's maximum operating pressure to look for leaks, deformations, or vulnerabilities.

After that, the pressure is maintained for a predetermined and agreed-upon period to allow for the emergence of any problems. If any are found, they will be fixed before the system is operational.

Regarding safety, pressure testing is also done to ensure that parts can tolerate the pressures they will come into contact with during routine operations.

The Process of Hydraulic Pressure Testing

The hydraulic pressure equation is the fundamental idea underlying hydraulic pressure testing. This can be expressed as P = F/A, where pressure is equal to Force divided by Surface Area, or F = P x A, where Force equals Pressure (P) x Surface Area (A).

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO), the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), and other well-known organizations' test standards are typically followed during the procedure. Typically, pressure testing is carried out by:

  • Filling the circuit: The return and drain lines are isolated, and the system is filled with either water or oil. To test the lines, pressure is slowly increased.
  • Pressurizing the pressure line: It involves raising the pressure to the highest level that is desirable, holding it there for 15 minutes, and checking for leaks visually at flanges, fixtures, and other connection points. Pressure loss is also tracked by keeping an eye on the pressure gauge.
  • Pressure Release: To pressurize the return and drain lines, the pressure in the pressure line is released by opening valves.
  • Pressurization of the Return/Drain Line: The manifold and the other end of the pressure line are being tracked for readings. If the test succeeds, the drain valve opens to release the line pressure.

The most popular pressure tests are the burst test, a destructive procedure that tests hose couplings and adapters at four times the maximum operating pressure, and the proof test, also known as the non-destructive hydrostatic pressure test.

By putting adapters through at least a million rotations and hose assemblies through a predetermined bend radius, an impulse test can forecast the life of a hose. A salt spray test can assess a material's resistance to corrosion.

Components of a Hydraulic Pressure Test Kit

Several parts intended to gauge and evaluate the pressure of hydraulic systems accurately often make up a hydraulic pressure test kit.

Here are some typical components you are likely to find in a hydraulic pressure test kit.

Test Hoses

Flexible tubes called test hoses link the hydraulic system and pressure gauge. They make it possible for the gauge to receive the pressure in the system to measure it accurately.

Pressure Gauge

The pressure gauge is an essential part that shows the hydraulic pressure in PSI or bar. It gives a reading of the system pressure in real-time.

Adapters and Fittings

Included are fittings and adapters for attaching the test hoses to various hydraulic systems. They guarantee a leak-free, safe connection throughout the pressure testing procedure.

Carrying Case

A sturdy carrying box is often included with hydraulic pressure test kits for easy storage and transit. When not in use, the case aids in keeping the parts secure and organized.

Shut-off Valve

During testing, the user can regulate the hydraulic fluid flow with a shut-off valve. This helps isolate particular hydraulic system components for testing without compromising the system.

Gauge Isolator

A gauge isolator is a valve or other apparatus that guards against pressure fluctuations or spikes during testing that could harm the pressure gauge. It contributes to keeping the gauge accurate and long-lasting.

Pressure Source

A hand pump or another pressure source may be included in some hydraulic pressure test kits to increase the system's pressure manually. This is particularly helpful for evaluating how the system reacts to various pressure levels.

FAQs About Hydraulic Pressure Test Kits

How long should pressure testing take?

This will depend on the kind of system and the specifications of the project; for instance, if we are taking a look at chilled water, mains water, condenser water, or a heating hydraulic system installed with copper, galvanized steel, or carbon steel pipework, the BESA specifies that the system must maintain stability for one hour.

Can hydraulic testing cause damage to a system?

Yes, harm can result from hydraulic pressure testing a system if it is not carried out by knowledgeable engineers and operators who completely comprehend the requirements.

What should I look for when choosing a hydraulic pressure test kit?

Consider elements like the gauge's accuracy, the caliber of the hoses and connections, the availability of a gauge isolator for safety, and the overall construction quality. Select a kit based on the needs of your system and the application in question.
