Webtec unveiled the DHCR1500R test kit at the Intermat and SED exhibitions, a test solution designed for testing the very largest mobile machinery with a maximum theoretical power of over 1500 HP (1MW).
The test kit, designed in collaboration with a major US mobile machinery manufacturer, enables the operator to measure flow, pressure and temperature while simultaneously loading the system using the purpose built pressure loading valve. The HV1500 is designed to allow the operator to simulate the machine circuit under normal conditions by restricting the flow and, hence, increasing the pump's operating pressure.
Despite the large flows and pressures involved the valve can be operated with one hand and can be used to increase the load smoothly. The valve, like all Webtec HV series load valves, features a built-in burst disc safety mechanism to prevent over-pressurisation that could otherwise damage the test kit and circuit under test. Rated to a maximum of 400 gpm & 6000 psi with code 62 two inch fittings, the DHCR1500R test kit is available to order from May 2009.
