Posted by UNIVERSIDAD DE BURGOSResponsive · Patents for licensing · Spain

Summary of the technology

A device for testing components subjected to high pressure (pipes and conduction elements), being able to hitch in any universal machine of dynamic tests to reproduce the work cycles (0-6000bar-0) of the different components to analyse. Thanks to this new equipment, it will be possible to verify quickly and easily new components subjected to high pressure knowing their corresponding fatigue lives, allowing preventive maintenance of the equipment.

New and innovative aspects

The majority of industrial components subjected to high pressure only pass static pressure tests for validation, in which the pressure rises up to 1.5 times the working pressure.
Currently, there aren´t any commercial devices for fatigue testing of the real component under work pressure, which means that some of the component broken due to fatigue even after passing the pressure test.

Main advantages of its use

The device integrates the technology (HPP, High Pressure Processing) that can be coupled to any universal dynamic testing machine to reproduce the high-pressure work cycles of any industrial component. In this way it will be possible to carry out tests of components subjected to high pressure (pipes and conduction elements), which allow:

1. To assess structural integrity and failure analysis.

2. To reproduce the work cycle (0-6000bar-0).

3. To know the performance of new components subjected to high pressure.

4. To determine the fatigue of the real component under the working pressure.

5. To perform hydraulic fracture and fatigue tests up to 6 000 bars.

Specifications

A device for testing components under high pressure in a traction-compression machine that allows to evaluate them under static and fatigue efforts, It comprises:

  1. A pressure intensifier with a cylinder and a rod,
  2. Two clamps comprises in the traction-compression machine,
  3. A supporting tube that houses the pressure intensifier
  4. A test tube,

In this way, the movement of the rod inside the test tube can compress a liquid arranged in the chamber.
