Leed Engineering sought NATA compliant equipment from Kennards Hire Test & Measure to test the water-main pressure of a newly laid pipeline.

Hydrostatic test pumps available for hire from Kennards Hire Test & Measure enable automatic pressure testing of pipeline systems, vessels and containers while meeting strict National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA) compliance and industry standards. Designed for plumbing and civil industries to pressure test water mains, pipelines and sewer force mains for possible leaks, hydrostatic test pumps provide more efficient and effective readings of pipeline leakages, resulting in better reservoir and dam water supplies.

Leed Engineering Project Engineer Nirav Patel came into the Kennards Hire Test & Measure specialist branch in Glandore, SA, knowing exactly what he needed. The engineering company was commissioned to test the water-main pressure of a newly laid pipeline, running water from the Murray River to a reservoir in the Barossa region. Requiring NATA compliant equipment to get an official reading and certification for the project, Leed Engineering found the hydrostatic pumps from Kennards Hire Test & Measure to be perfectly suited for the task. 

The engineering company has been a happy customer of Kennards Hire Test & Measure, having hired the hydrostatic test pump on three separate occasions. Kennards Hire Test & Measure Product Specialist, Michael Hein added that Leed Engineering has been impressed with the flow and high pressure of the pump.

Designed for ease of use, the hydrostatic pumps feature a portable 14L water tank and conversion hoses for use with an onsite reservoir; 5.5 HP engine; Hypro twin diaphragm pump 9.5GPM/ 550PSI; pressure output 100, 250, 450 & 550PSI; flow output 9.5GPM (30LPM); and testing gauge 100MM Kpa – Bar.
