Hydraulics Test Services in Orlando, Florida

December 13, 2018

Hydraulics have a wide variety of applications, from valves to actuators, accumulators to pumps, and motors to heat exchangers. NTS Orlando hydraulics department answers the call, with the testing of these applications against a number of MIL, SAE ARM, and ISO standards. The NTS Orlando team performs high and low temperature (fluid and/or environment), burst and proof pressure testing – hydrostatic and dynamic at temperature, flow and pressure drop, cracking pressure, reseat pressure, leakage, endurance, impulse, cold start, loads, and combine vibration and hydraulics testing.

Our hydraulics experts in Orlando deliver the performance, characterization, engineering and functional testing needed to ensure the performance of equipment. Additionally, NTS utilizes high speed data acquisition and control using LabVIEW Software and National Instruments hardware up to a 1kHz recording rate.

Rapid Cooling of Phosphate Ester and Hydrocarbon Based Hydraulic Fluids

Our specially designed mechanical refrigeration systems, featuring a proprietary heat exchanger, are engineered to achieve testing at temperature extremes of minus 55° Celsius with flows of up to 20 GPM. The systems utilize accumulators supplied with chilled hydraulic fluid and cold start testing to achieve continuous flows of up to 20 GPM (low pressure) for fluid temperatures of up to minus 40° Celsius and 15 GPM at high pressure during endurance testing.

NTS Orlando’s hydraulics testing experts perform testing of these applications (and many more!) to MIL-F-8815, SAE ARM standards 490, 4946, 24, and 1283, ANSI T2.21.3 and T3.5.28, and ISO standards 10770, 6404, and 6605.
