Reciprocating test rig

Our reciprocating test-rig is specifically designed to evaluate the performance of both rod and piston seals. With its precise measurement capabilities, it enables comprehensive analysis of seal behaviour to optimize performance.

The test-rig offers flexibility as all operating limits, including pressures, velocities, diameters, stroke length, and temperature, can be adjusted upon request to align with your specific testing requirements. We regularly use this test-rig for academic purposes hence the accuracy of the measurements meets scientific standards.
