The RFIK30 is ideal for hydraulic flow testing components with operating flows below 30 lpm, such as many hydraulic steering pumps on trucks, buses and large off-highway machinery. These two new models will join the already popular RFIK120 and RFIK200 providing a complete range of cost-effective hydraulic testers.

The RFIK hydraulic tester provides the service engineer with a rugged unit for quick, accurate and simple performance testing of pumps, motors, valves, steering systems, cylinders and complete hydraulic circuits. The RFIK200 is widely used by service engineers in the construction and agricultural machinery industries as the tool of choice when hydraulic faultfinding at flows up to 200 lpm and pressures up to 420 bar.

The RFIK hydraulic tester comprises of a direct acting flow indicator with built in thermometer, a loading valve and a pressure gauge, all built into a strong steel case with a removable lid. The unit is self-contained and requires no electrical power. The dials are clear and easy to read.

Installation is extremely simple and the test kit can be connected into either the pressure or return lines. The loading valve and pressure gauge allow a progressive build-up of system pressure in complete safety. The loading valve incorporates safety burst discs which relieve, without external spillage, if the operating pressure exceeds 440 bar. Burst discs rated at lower pressures are available.
