Aussie Pumps export test gear

Aussie Pumps announced a major contract for supply of 500 bar hydrostatic test gear for the Middle East. Conceived, designed and built at Australian Pump Industry’s 2.5 acre Sydney manufacturing base and headquarters, the big machines were chosen against stiff competition from both United States and European manufacturers.

The base product, called the Raptor 18 D/HPT, offers the user capability of testing oil or water pipe lines up to 500 bar (7,300 psi). The machines come with double gauge, double valve assemblies that enable the operator to easily read pressure losses in a wide range of applications. These include pipelines as well as important oil industry equipment that includes valves, compressors, pressure tanks and pumps.

The heart of the system is a “Big Berty” Bertolini 500 bar Triplex pump that develops 18 litres per minute flow. The pump has a 316 stainless steel pump head and features stainless steel valves. The machines are highly portable and the frames include an integrated lifting bar that enables units to be easily moved around on construction sites.
