Joint Pressure Testing System
Rausch’s Joint Pressure Testing System (JPTS) has been on the European Market for many years and has proven to be a very viable and highly reliable. This system is used to test each joint for leaks individually.
How it works:
- 1) The L135 Tractor positions the JPTS over the joint(s) to be tested.
- 2) Proper alignment is ensured by the CCTV camera located in between the two inflatable bladders
- 3) The first bladder is expanded to block any flow coming through the line/system.
- 4) The second bladder is expanded to seal off the joint.
- 5) Air pressure - usually 8 psi - is applied to the now sealed joint area. The pre-set* air pressure value must be maintained for a certain period of time, to be set according to applicable testing regulations.
- 6) After the test period is over, the system will indicate if the joint has passed or failed the test.**
*The test pressures and the duration of the test can be adjusted to meet requirements.
**The software produces a report of the tested areas that can be printed.
