Hydratron Case Studies
Hydratron engineers have developed bespoke systems across a range of disciplines including Hydraulic, Pneumatic, Structural & PLC/PC engineering. The case studies below detail a selection of the engineered systems we have developed.
We take great care to work closely with our clients at every stage of the development of their custom-designed system. These case studies offer an insight into the Hydratron design process and some of the engineering challenges that we have helped clients overcome.
Designed for a well known sealless pump manufacturer and is suitable for carrying out hydrostatic body shell testing of pump casings, bearing housings, coupling housings and casing plates.
The Hydratron 3 Station Sealless Pump Casing/Shroud Pressure Test Rig has been designed for a well known sealless pump manufacturer and is suitable for carrying out hydrostatic body shell testing of four items (pump casings, bearing housings, coupling housings and casing plates) simultaneously at pressures up to 285 bar using water (containing a surfactant) as the test medium. It is also configured such that individual items can also be tested.
A large aerospace manufacturer approached Hydratron with a requirement to design a pressure testing solution that could be used to test a wide range of stainless-steel aerospace components; used on various types of aircraft.
The tests that were required varied from component to component but the rig had to be able to carry out hydraulic testing with pressures to 1,250PSI, gas testing with pressures to 600 PSI and low pressure air testing to 100 PSI. Submerged gas testing was also required to allow the operator to visually identify gas leak locations on the components if there was a failure.
