Hydraulic Assemblies Life Tests

| What?

The test rig for life tests of hydraulic assemblies are suitable for:

  • plastic hydraulic assemblies
  • copper hydraulic assemblies

|How?

The test rigs for life tests are intended to perform tests based on thermal and mechanic stress of hydraulic assemblies.

| Where?

In the life tests room or in the R&D lab.

| Who?

  • Manufacturers of gas boilers
  • Manufacturers of heat pumps 
  • Manufacturers of hydraulic assemblies

Why?

  • Final test time improvement
  • Endurance evaluation of the hydraulic assemblies 
  • Mechanic and thermal resistance evaluation
  • Quality improvement
  • Final product reliability improvement 
  • Test data available for statistical elaborations
  • Market credibility improvement

| Which?

These test rigs are suitable for the hydraulic assemblies of the different manufacturers available on the market.

| Tests

  • DHW and CH circuits stress either individually or in parallel with pressures up to 20 bar
  • DHW and CH circuits stress either individually or in parallel with water from ambient up to 95° C temperature.

| Number of devices under test

  • Up to 10 devices under test at the same time.

Hydraulic assemblies End-of-Line

| What?

Microplan's hydraulic assemblies test rigs are suitable for:

  • plastic hydraulic assemblies
  • copper hydraulic assemblies

| How?

Microplan's hydraulic assemblies test rigs are intended to perform a full functional test.

| Where?

In the production line before the final assembly.

| Who?

  • Manufacturers of gas fired boilers
  • Manufacturers of heat pumps
  • Manufacturers of hydraulic assemblies

| Why?

  • Reduction of final test time
  • Reduced faults at final tests
  • Takt time balance (read more in our blog)
  • Quality improvement
  • Full traceability of test data
  • Human operations driven and controlled by the test rig
  • Test data available for statistical elaborations
  • Market credibility

| Which?

These test rigs are suitable for hydraulic assemblies of the different manufacturers available on the market. The main difference among the models of test rigs is the way they perfom the leakage test either with water or with air.

| Tests

  • Operator identification through scanner or badge
  • Assembly identification through barcode reading and test sequence automatic loading and running
  • Leakage test on DHW and CH circuits in parallel with two different pressures
  • Leakage test within circuits
  • DHW max flow rate check
  • CH flow test
  • By-pass flow test
  • DHW min flow rate check
  • 3-way valve test (electric or stepper motor)
  • Good and fault pieces printing

| Options:

  • Automatic couplings through pistons
  • Manual couplings with quick connectors
