A workhorse rheometer for laboratory research and production-floor QC has a brand-new look plus a smaller diameter spindle shaft, smaller water-jacket
accessory, and direct control of temperature from the keypad.
Water is a particularly effective insulator, and the water-jacket
system is considered a more reliable method of heating in case of a power outage.
Either of these mixers lend themselves well to water-jacket
cooling, used to prolong the interval between maintenance.
Re-engineering our automated water-jacket
test equipment to accommodate 220Volt, 50Hz power has not been an option for us," said Doug Sagar, president of Hydro-Test Products.
Hydro-Test's cylinder testing products include high-pressure water-jacket test systems for full-size and portable-size cylinders, along with other testing systems, parts and accessories for these and other types of pressurized tanks, low-pressure proof testing gear for fire extinguishers, propane, refrigerant and other devices.
The company offers manual and automated high-pressure water-jacket test systems.
Like many other products with on-board electronics, the automated version of Hydro-Test's high-pressure water-jacket system faces a major obstacle in selling to a large portion of the global market: the nature of power supplied by the country's utility grid.
