SIGMAlite pressure

For pressure testing plastic pipes and fittings in PE, PEX, PVC, PP, PB etc., glass fibre pipes, tubes and hoses. The SIGMAlite pressure unit is a compact plug-and-play pressure test solution with five fixed pressure stations and is ideal for smaller layouts.

SIGMA is the new generation of pressure testing helping our customers prepare for IoT and Industry 4.0. System complies with the standards ISO 1167, EN 12 293 ASTM, D1598  and ASTM D 1599 and equivalent.

Product highlights

  • accurate and easy
  • dynamically adjusted real-time finish time
  • four user levels
  • self-diagnostic & troubleshooting system
  • preventive maintenance system
  • easy-to-set-up recipes
  • visual alarm in case of irregularities
  • OPC UA enabled


The compact plug and play test unit with five fixed individual pressure stations ideal for smaller layouts. Incl. DPC system and ABX valves ensures consistent and unparalleled pressure accuracy. This cost effective and reliable solution is easy to setup and operate from any device via the web-based software.

The alarm visually alerts the user, in case of irregularities in the ongoing test.

SIGMAlite 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:

Dimensions: B542xD740xH652 mm


SCITEQ SIGMA pressure solution determines the resistance (both long term and short term) to internal pressure with up to 100bar/1450 psi on thermoplastic pipes, fittings and assemblies for conveyance of fluids,
complying with following test standards and equivalent:

  • ISO 1167 and ASTM D1598 long term hydrostatic test. Max. flow rate per station is 2 l/min.
  • ISO 1167 and ASTM D1599 short term testing”Standard Test Method for Time-to-Failure of Plastic Pipe Under Constant Internal Pressure”. Max. allowed pressuring time is 70 seconds Max. flow rate in a burst station is 2 l/min.

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 step testing can all be accommodated.


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


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.

Easy maintenance

The smart design of the SIGMAlite pressure cabinet offers easy access for servicing and the pressure test can operate during service or maintenance. The valves are NC (normally closed), each station will keep pressure when turned off. Drainage of pressure equipment for servicing only necessary servicing the A valve and this is very rarely necessary.

Energy consumption

SCITEQ’s Dynamic Pressure Control System uses only approx. 1/3 of power compared to conventional systems.

SCITEQ is the only supplier of the DPCS system. Other systems on the market use pressure pumps that run constantly via a bypass/circulation valve, hence the power consumption will be equal to the motor size + the power consumption for the control unit. As we supply pressure with the DPCS system to a high pressure reservoir the running time of the pump is reduced by more the 90%, thereby significantly reducing the power consumption.

Our PLC control uses an electronic power transformer to generate 24 volt power to the solenoid. This electronic power transformer regulates the output according to the specific need.

SIGMA modular pressure

Looking for more than 5 pressure test stations? SIGMA modular pressure test is an expandable test solution for larger layouts with minimum 5 pressure stations up to maximum 50 stations in one test rig/cabinet.
