Erie, PA – Jan. 21, 2021 - High Pressure Equipment Company (HiP), a subsidiary of Graco Inc., introduces new triple pump models for its PT2020™ Automated Pressure Testing Controller System for air-driven high pressure hydraulic pumps. The first-of-its-kind triple pump PT2020 controller is designed to provide automated pressure control for a wide range of hydrostatic testing, including test benches that utilize three different pumps for specific operations in their pressure testing. Operators simply set up their test, press start and walk away - the PT2020 controller will automatically run the test, give a pass/fail reading and generate a test report. The plug and play PT2020 controller is an easy-to-use upgrade for any existing manual pneumatic intensifier pump.
The new triple pump PT2020 controller addresses a need for hydrostatic test benches that utilize multiple pumps for specific functions. In order to maximize efficiency and prolong the service life of high-pressure hydraulic pumps, test benches often run two or three pumps to conduct their testing. For example, Pump 1 is a low-pressure pump used to fill the item being tested, Pump 2 is a medium-pressure pump that drives the pressure to a specific setting, and Pump 3 is a high-pressure pump that delivers final test pressure. The PT2020 controller allows an operator to program a test using all three pumps and walk away. The controller will run the test and provide a pass/fail report.
The PT2020 controller controls a wide range of pressure tests in addition to the three-pump controller test detailed above. Manual pressure tests allow the operator to simply select a target pressure and ratio of pump, and the controller regulates the air volume sent to pump and completes test. Precision ramp tests facilitate a pressure test to control the pressure rise at a precise rate, such as increasing pressure at 500 psi per second. Pressure cycle tests provide an automated life cycle test, running multiple pressure cycles from low to high pressure to establish life expectancy.
The PT2020 controller allows companies to predefine and store up to 100 unique pressure tests and the controller will give automated pass/fail for each test. The system provides FTP functionality to allow a PC to pull files from the controller as downloadable reports to provide documentation of test results.
HiP's easy-to-use new PT2020 automated pump controller for up to three pumps comes in five pressure ratings: 10,000 psi, 25,000 psi, 40,000 psi, 60,000 psi and 75,000 psi. The PT2020 controller features an intuitive touch screen interface making test setup fast and easy. This new triple pump controller is highly accurate and will save users money by freeing personnel to do other tasks while conducting hydrostatic tests.
