The patented TestMaster® Model LPH Series Hydrostatic Test Tools are specially designed to grip and provide positive sealing for plain end tubing. The safety spring pre-grips the tube, and the clamping mechanism assure a constant, positive grip during the work cycle. Tools are available with manual lever operation or pneumatic actuation. The tool can be used with a variety of services including water, oil, and other liquids.
The Model LPH Series Tools are suitable for hydrostatic pressure testing and hydro-expansion up to 5,000 psi (345 bar) according to military, nuclear, automotive, and aerospace specifications: API, ASTM, ASME, ISO, DIN, and BS. The compact, balanced design is particularly suited to restricted work areas, such as aircraft lines or heating and cooling systems.
The Model LPH Series Tool handles standard and metric tube, pipe, and fitting sizes from 0.13 in. to 6.63 in. (3.2 mm to 168.3 mm) in diameter.
