Oil and gas: IntelliTest launched as first fully-automated hydrostatic pressure tester system

Source:Wilson Company

Wilson Company’s intelligent tester system is initially targeted for oil and gas industry OEM manufacturers and re-certifiers of critical parts for fracking applications.

The Systems Division of Wilson Company (Wilson Systems) , specialists in the design of automated industrial systems combining intelligent electronics with the power of hydraulics, is launching IntelliTest®, the first fully-automated non-destructive hydrostatic pressure tester, for testing and recertification of critical iron parts for oil and gas fracking applications.

Already in service at numerous industry-leading customers, IntelliTest tests to certify and recertify critical-use iron parts such as check valves, plug valves and plumbing components, as well as fracking trucks and manifolds with the associated hoses and piping. The unique distinguishing feature of IntelliTest when compared to competing systems is its fully-automated intelligent operation. Once started, the test requires no operator intervention. The automation ensures test integrity, repeatability, traceability, and prevents over pressurizing the test specimen.

The system is operated either locally or remotely via PC or mobile device through a convenient touch screen. The screen provides test status and results. Many customers also currently choose to interface with the IntelliTest® from an information database for test parameters and results storage.

The product is available with or without an integrated cabinet enclosure. It is more commonly provided without the cabinet and simply placed in the test chamber (or field bunker) with the test specimen. This installation method removes any and all high pressure components from the operator’s vicinity, increasing the margin of safety in high pressure testing.
