A major investment in state-of-the-art research and development technology has seen MP Filtri deliver test equipment which will enhance the performance and reliability of its products.
Three new test benches have just been introduced, enabling the company to keep pace with the changing demands of the market and carry out exhaustive testing on a wide range of new products and technologies.
The equipment includes:
A PRESSURE PULSE FATIGUE TEST BENCH
Evaluating the performance of filter housings.
The operating range for the tests is up to 700 bar with a frequency of 1Hz (1 cycle per second). The reference standard is:
- ISO 10771-1 Hydraulic fluid power -- Fatigue pressure testing of metal pressure-containing envelopes
A FLOW RATE TEST BENCH
Evaluating the collapse of fatigue strength in filter elements. This test enables the calculation of the remaining life of the element in percentage terms.
The operating range of the new machine is 250 l/min at a maximum pressure of 200 bar. Its reference standards are:
- Collapse: ISO 2941 Hydraulic fluid power -- Filter elements -- Verification of collapse/burst pressure rating
- Flow fatigue: ISO 3724 Hydraulic fluid power -- Filter elements -- Determination of resistance to flow fatigue using particulate contaminant
A LABORATORY TEST BENCH
Specially designed to measure and evaluate wide ranging performance characteristics such as: temperature, flow rate, pressure, contamination level, conductivity, surface tension and more. The tests can be carried out with biodegradable HEES oil and with HLP hydraulic oil.
