Kennards Hire has opened a new business specialising in certified, highly accurate measuring, testing, and inspecting equipment. Kennards Hire Test & Measure will carry the highly accurate National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA) calibrated Hydrostatic Testing Equipment to ensure that all the machinery and equipment available for hire meets stringent compliance requirements.
The new specialist business allows clients to access specialised testing equipment on demand, rather than investing large capital outlay to acquire equipment that may only be used several times a year.
Testing equipment is used extensively throughout a wide reach of industries that includes the mining, electrical, oil, gas and civil construction industries.
The range of equipment extends from Hydrostatic Test Pumps, Anchor Testers and Non-Invasive Smoke Machines to an extensive array of Hand-Held Devices.
One of the first projects to utilise the new equipment was a gold mine in the regional hub of Dubbo NSW, approximately 400 kilometres north-west of Sydney.
When a NATA certified gauge on the Hydrostatic Test Pump and Kit was required by the construction supervisor at the mine, Kennards Hire Dubbo was able to supply the exact unit needed and provide a calibration certificate.
The Hydrostatic Test Pump and Kit features a heavy-duty frame, hydraulic quick-disconnect brass swivel fitting, an inline strainer, and a silicone filled test gauge with stainless steel case.
At the mine the Hydrostatic Test Pump and Kit was connected to the pipeline and used to test and confirm that the specified pressure was achieved. It was also used to check for leaks around flanges and joints.
