SIGMA modular pressure

For pressure testing plastic pipes and fittings in PE, PEX, PVC, PP, PB etc., glass fibre pipes, tubes and hoses. SIGMA is the new generation of pressure testing helping our customers prepare for IoT and Industry 4.0. The system consists of modular airless pressure modules designed to fit into an elegant standard cabinet with a compact footprint. The modularity enables easy configuration and extension of existing pressure cabinets, making SIGMA the most future proof and cost efficient solution in the market. System complies with the standards ISO 1167, EN 12 293 ASTM, D1598  and ASTM D 1599 and equivalent.

Description

SIGMA pressure solution determines the resistance (both long term and short term) to internal pressure on thermoplastic pipes, fittings and assemblies for conveyance of fluids.
The product design complies with following pipe diameter configurations:

Up to Ø800 [mm] pipe diameter in long term test, provided the total volume expansion of the test specimen until pressure set point is reached is less than 120dm3 within 1 hour from test startup (max allowed pressuring time is 1 hour according to ISO1167 and max flow rate pr. SUB station is 2l/min)

Up to Ø315 [mm] pipe diameter in short term test, provided the total volume expanding until fracture (burst) is less than 10.5dm3 within 70 seconds from test startup (max allowed pressuring time is 70s according to ASTM D1599 and max flow rate in a BURST station is 9l/min)

SIGMA PowerPack module         

Pressure source feed to all X-ACT SUB modules. Various models available incl./excl.output for optional BURST modules. With built-in high pressure pump and 10 micron inlet filter.

  • Max. 100 or 160 bar regulated pressure output.
  • Max. 200bar unregulated output (optional)
  • Max. flow: 17 l/min.

SIGMA SUB module         

Provides 5 or 10 independently operating pressure stations up to max. 100 or 160 bar. Semi-automatic individual pressure transmitter calibration through integrated main transmitter is optional. Built-in fast reacting valves for precise pressure control.

  • Max. 100 or 160 bar regulated pressure  output
  • Max. flow per station: 2 l/min.

SIGMA BURST module

Provides one linear burst pressure station up to max. 200bar within 60-70 seconds. Built-in fast reacting high flow and pressure valves for fast and precise pressure control. Requires PowerPack module with output for BURST module.

  • Max. 200bar regulated pressure output
  • Max. flow: 15l/min.

SIGMA HCP3 module

Provides three independently high volume operating pressure stations up to max. 100bar regulated pressure output. Built-in fast reacting valves for precise pressure control.

  • 3 individual stations
  • Max. 100bar
  • Max. flow: 15 l/min

SIGMA Cyclic module

Provides a cyclic “saw tooth” pressure output between 5 to 10bar or 5 to 30bar. Test frequency up to 1Hz, 60 cycles per minute. Built-in high pressure pump, 10 micron inlet filter and water tank for recirculation of water.

  • Cyclic pressure output between 5 to 10bar or 5 to 30bar
  • Max. flow: 4 l/min.

DPCS – Dynamic Pressure Control System

SCITEQ’s intelligent Dynamic Pressure Control System ensures that test pressures are maintained with unparalleled accuracy no matter what size sample is connected to the system. Static, burst and cyclic testing can all be accommodated.

Flow per station: max. flow 2 l/min (max. flow 9 l/min for burst). For other valve flow and power pack flow configurations, refer to the SCITEQ HCP solutions.

Alarm

The built-in alarm light instantly alerts the operator visually in case of irregularities in the ongoing test.

Software

The browser-based SIGMA software is accessible from any device – any time, anywhere. The advantages are among others:

    • 4 different user levels
    • Easy recipe set-up
    • Dynamically adjusted real-time finish time
    • Multiple simultaneous users
    • Multiple specimen test per station
    • SQL database compatible with all server types

    The fast and extremely easy to use interface enables easy operation and control of few as well as many simultaneous pressures tests with features such as dynamically adjusted finish time, full station overview and click less maneuvering.

    Recipes are quickly set-up, saving time when starting up a new test (diameter) as well as repeating saved test parameters. Up to four different user-levels from Basic to Advanced, ensuring not only easy operation, but also offering simultaneous ‘view-only’ access for your interested partners and clients.
