Internal Weld Testers and Flange Weld Testers Now Available

Internal Weld Testers  are designed to pressure test weld neck flanges, flange joints and plain pipe butt welds eliminating the need for a full system test. The tools are inserted into the line and positioned with the seals either side of the test area. The tool is then set and the annulus between the seals is then fitted/vented with the test medium and pressurised.  They can also be used to provide isolation during welding operations.

 Internal Weld Tester

Flange Weld Testers are designed to pressure test various types of flange connections including weld neck, slip-on, Quickflange, lap joint etc. The tools are inserted into the flange connection and fastened up. The tool is then set and the annulus between the seal and the flange is then filled/vented with the test medium and pressurised to the flange rating.

 Flange Weld Tester


Internal and Flange Weld Testers are manufactured from high grade carbon steel and the seals are made from special polyurethane which has a low hysterisis. All units are hydro tested prior to shipment and supplied with full operating instructions and pre-delivery reports.  


Available for short or long term rental, Internal Weld Testers are available from 2" through to 36" and Flange Weld Testers are available from 1/2" through to 36". All tools have a testing capacity of up to ANSI 1500 and can be shortened or lengthened to suit your specific project requirements.  


Hi-Force Hydraulic Tools - Skates and Skate Kits

Hi-Force have recently overhauled their entire range of skates and skate kits to offer a more versatile and comprehensive range.


The RKT Roller Skate Kit has a load capacity of up to 35 tonnes. It is comprised of a twin skate roller fitted with a turntable, two single skates fitted with top plates, a handle and a link bar.


RSN Multipurpose Skates are low profile and available in a variety of capacities from 10 to 80 tonnes. The RSN Multipurpose Skates offer an economical and simple way of positioning  irregular and heavy loads making them ideal for use in the construction, mining and steel industries.


RSA Heavy Duty Skates replace the RSH range. These skates are suited to movement of heavy loads such as transformers, generators, turbines and machinery. There are 6 models in the range, with capactiies of 15-85 tonnes.


The RKF Roller Skate Kit range replaces the RSC range and is suited to moving moderately heavy equipment over short distances. The RFK Skate Kit is available in 3 models at 20, 30 and 60 tonnes. The design of this kit provides smooth travel with at least 5 rollers on the floor at all times.


The RSG & RSD Heavy Duty Skates with Grooved Side ranges are replacing the REX and RSX ranges. The RSG range are single moving skates with up to 200 tonne capacities on each skate. The RSD range is a double roller skate with a capacity of up to 400 tonnnes per skate.


Hi-Force Hydraulic Tools - Design Updates

Hi-Force has recently changed the design of the CH1000 hydraulic cable crimping head, which is now referred to as the CH1000N.


The design has been changed to make the tool increasingly compact and therefore more user friendly.  Various dimensions of the tool have been reduced, most notably the overall length of the tool which has been changed from 17.93 inches to 17.55 inches.


The CH1000N remains suitable for crimping distribution and transmission lines up to 1000m2, however the output tonnes capacity has been increased from 55 tonnes to 66 tonnes.


New Cylinders from Hi-Force Hydraulic Tools


Hi-Force has recently added the HSS258 to the range of single acting multi-purpose cylinders. The additional model offers a 25 tonne capacity and a stroke length of 203mm.


An additional model has also been added to the HFG range of single acting failsafe lock ring cylinders.  The HFG502 offers a 50 tonne capacity and a 150mm stroke.


Both of these new models have been added due to a regular demand from the market and are available with immediate effect.  Contact or phone Helen on 9591 1288.
