Environmental testing for renewable energy systems

One of the most common applications for environmental chambers in recent times is for carrying out tests related to renewable energy. These tests are both to determine the reliability and the efficiency of renewable energy components such as solar panels, battery storage systems and electric drive systems, under various operating conditions. Such environmental chambers can .. read more

Hydro-static & Burst test machines for plastic pipes & fittings

Fully automatic hydrostatic and burst testing machines are specifically used for time-to-failure-test of plastic pipe under constant internal pressure and for test-of-resistance-to-short-time hydraulic pressure of plastic pipe tubing and fittings. Such machines find use by manufacturers or importers of plastic pipes and fittings and major end-users in the mining industry. Hylec Controls  offers cost-effective hydrostatic and .. read more

Automatic Vickers Knoop Hardness Tester

Making soft readings a thing of the past This latest, fully-automatic closed-loop hardness tester can satisfy the two major uses of hardness testers, namely process control or research & development. The hardness tester comes with software that focuses on fast and simple operation for less-experienced operators, while still offering a high-feature set and flexibility required .. read more

Superior Electrodynamic Shakers for Transportation Testing

To minimise the damage caused to products in the supply chain from factory to consumers, manufacturers and packaging companies have a vital interest in understanding the effects of shock and vibration on their products. This encompasses food and beverage, cosmetic, pharmaceutical and electronics industries. In the early days, such testing involved simply sending goods through .. read more

Consider these Design Essentials for Servo Hydraulic Actuators

Actuators with no seals and hydrostatic self-centering rod bearings have almost no friction, infinite life, high side load capability and no limitation on cyclic amplitude of movement and are well suited for precise control and low amplitude high frequency operation. However they suffer from two draw backs. Firstly they are expensive and secondly they have .. read more

An alternative method of Heat-Shrinking Heavy Bearings

Ruggedized Industrial Freezer The Mining Industry and the Mobile Equipment Repair Industry often has a need to fit new bearings into existing pieces of plant and equipment. The conventional way of doing this is to heat the outer housing with a flame to allow the bearing to fit. An alternative method has been to use .. read more

Nano Testing with Hylec Controls

Conventional mechanical testing of metallic and non-metallic materials has used either universal test machines which measure the strength and mechanical properties of materials by either tensile or compression testing methods. Another technique employed is the use of hardness testers where material is indented with a fixed force and the size of the indentation to give .. read more

Plastic Moulds for Concrete Test Cylinders

Recent trials have established the benefits of heavy duty plastic moulds for concrete test cylinders. The heavy duty plastic moulds have insulating properties that minimise the effect of heating or cooling of the sample, due to high or low ambient temperatures. This results in more consistent and higher strength readings on one-to-ten day samples and without the need .. read more

Advances in Measurement of strength of materials using a portable hardness tester

Hylec’s Portable Hardness Tester. For over a century hardness testing Instruments have been used to measure the strength of metallic materials and hardness of their surface finish. The original machines were bench mounted and measured strength by applying a given force to a probe and making an indentation which causes plastic deformation. The material hardness .. read more

Hydrostatic and Burst Testing Machine

The Wance Type A hydrostatic and burst testing machine is specifically used for time-to-failure tests of plastic pipes under constant internal pressure. This machine is also used for short-time hydraulic pressure testing of plastic pipes, tubing, and fittings. Max pressure: 10Mpa, 16Mpa, 20Mpa and 30Mpa Features: Leakage test Rupture identification Overpressure protection No-water protection Automatic .. read more
