HTU For The Health And Safety Laboratory

HTU For The Health And Safety Laboratory

The Health and Safety Laboratory (HSL) is one of the world's leading providers of health and safety solutions to industry, government and professional bodies.
The main focus of HSL’s work is on understanding and reducing health and safety risks. The HSL offer health and safety research, expert advice and consultancy, specialist training and products.
When the HSL wanted a hydrostatic pressure testing unit they came to Cat Pumps for the solution, Alan McDonald of the HSL explains:
‘HSL own and operate a fleet of some 160 + pieces of equipment which are in scope of the pressure equipment regulations (PSSR 2000).  A significant requirement of the regulations are to carry out regular thorough inspections and examination which include  a pressure test.  Historically we would carry out these these tests using cobbled together kit and a hand pump.  The HTU is a dedicated highly mobile hydraulic pressure testing solution that will allow us to carry out pressure tests in a safer and more timely manner.  It's not an exaggeration to say that we will most likely recoup the cost of the unit within the first 8 or 9 uses, such was the amount of time and effort that went in to pressure testing doing it the 'old fashioned way'  We also carry out experimental work that often requires significant hydraulic pressure – the HTU is the perfect solution for that type of work also‘.

The Hydrostatic Pressure Test Unit (HTU) from Cat Pumps is a compact, mobile high pressure system utilising the highly reliable and long lived Cat Pumps high pressure plunger pumps. The HTU can be used for testing of pipelines,delivery hoses, valves, heat exchangers and other pressure related components.

The HTU comes complete on a 4 wheel trolley, baseplate with motor, Cat Pump, water tank and integrated control box.
