Efficient performance and reliable quality: the importance of pump test stands

Pump test stands are special equipment used to check the performance and efficiency of pumps. They play an important role in various industries such as water management, the chemical industry or the oil and gas industry. By using pump test stands, engineers can test the functioning of a pump under realistic conditions and identify possible weak points or potential for improvement. This makes it possible to improve the quality and reliability of pump systems, thereby reducing costs and increasing safety. Pump test stands are therefore indispensable tools for the development, production and maintenance of pumps.

Pumps are required in a wide variety of applications. From micro-metering pumps in chemical laboratories and garden pumps to large pumps in industrial environments or as vacuum pumps, the test requirements vary greatly and are linked to the actual application. Users from the industry appreciate the flexibility and universal inputs of the ProfiMessage and the Expert Key devices. The adjustable sampling rate of up to 100 kHz also allows high-resolution examinations and tests to be carried out. The high reliability of the hardware and the complete and secure long-term archiving of the ProfiSignal software also predestine them for service life testing, environmental simulation and endurance testing.

Application highlights of the pump test stands

  • Universal inputs suitable for any type of sensor (e.g. mA, mV, RTD, thermocouples)
  • Speed detection, vibration measurement, flow rates, volume flows and pressures
  • Fast acquisition speeds of up to 100 kSamples/s
  • Control via analog, digital and PWM outputs
  • Monitoring of limit values and alarms in the event of errors or failures

Practical example of a pump test stand

Versatile, compatible testing of hydraulic pumps

A manufacturer of hydraulic pumps has designed three test stands for tests during development in the 30 kW, 90 kW and 250 kW classes. This required fast measurement data acquisition and evaluation. As a large number of parameters are measured and the sampling rate had to be possible up to 100 kHz, the Expert Key C devices were selected as hardware for installation in the control cabinet. Using the ProfiSignal Klicks software, users can now carry out their specific testing and evaluation tasks independently. Particular emphasis was placed on Office compatibility. With just a few mouse clicks, the measurement data can be transferred from the test bench program as an ASCII/xls table or inserted into a Word report as vector-based graphics.

Typical areas of application
of the pump test stands

  • Endurance tests
  • Speed monitoring by means of vibration measurement
  • Characteristic curve determination
  • Map determination, delivery head via volume flow
  • Idle tests
  • Heating test
  • Efficiency determination
