Webtec’s RFIK270 model offers increased flow capacity and reduced pressure drop across the unit.

Webtec has added the RFIK270 mechanical hydraulic tester to its RFIK series. The model displays an increased flow capacity of 270 l/min (70 USg/min). In addition, the RFIK270 features a modified load valve that reduces pressure drop across the unit. According to tests completed using ISO32 mineral oil at 40°C (32cSt viscosity), the tester reduces pressure drop by approximately 12 bar (174 psi) at maximum flow (270 l/min), equating to a reduction of circa 35%. Like other models in the series, the RFIK270 comprises of a direct-acting reverse flow indicator (RFI), built-in thermometer and a loading valve with pressure gauge. The system features two internal safety discs that relieve at 420 bar (6000 psi) without external spillage.
