The need for reliable results

SCITEQ’s test equipment must provide reliable results in order to live up to PSILab’s mission; to deliver solutions when pipe producers need certainty. The SCITEQ Dynamic Pressure Control (DPC) system© and unique ABX valve ensures consistent and unparalleled pressure accuracy, no matter the sample size.

Service & support at hand

SCITEQ Service engineer Kim Køpke, who is in charge of service and support at PSILab states “It’s our job to make sure that PSILab’s test results are accurate and reliable and to help ensure maximum up-time on the test equipment”.

PSILab solution – scalable solution for every need

PSILab offers tests of any pipe material and diameter, which calls for scalable hardware and intuitive software. PSILab’s complete pressure test solution consists today of 80 individual X-ACT pressure stations with a capacity of up to 160 bar for hydrostatic testing as well as a designated stations for burst test at 200 bar.

Uniform conditions and reliable results

The 80 pressure stations are connected to SCITEQ thermo tanks of various sizes offering capacity for numerous pipe sample configurations of up to OD 630mm. The tanks’ compact thermal insulation, innovative heating elements and circulation pumps ensure a constant and uniform temperature between 20-95°Celsius.

Durable and versatile UTM

The SCITEQ UTM is equally suitable for routine quality control testing as for complex multi-stage tests as they are highly customizable. PSILab’s SCITEQ UTM is a 4-column solution with deflection gauge and extensometer system. Suitable for large diameter pipe testing of up to 100kN. The software enables a large range of different test procedures according to international standards.
