Stauff redesigns pressure test kits for maintenance and service of hydraulic systems

Stauff, the fluid technology specialist from Werdohl in Germany, has redesigned its range of pressure test kits from the SMB and SMB-DIGI series and now supplies these in a visually more appealing and significantly more convenient design. This allows the company to meet the increasing requirements of the market.

These plastic cases are very popular with maintenance and service professionals. As before, they contain test couplings and hoses from the Stauff Test product group as well as one to three pressure gauges and other accessories required for their connection. The exact content, e.g. analogue or digital measuring and display devices for pressure ranges between -1 and 600 bar, test couplings with ball or piston valve as well as test hoses with different lengths and nominal diameters, are determined by individual customer requirements. The cases are filled accordingly at the fully automated Stauff logistics centre before shipping. Numerous standard versions can be ordered directly from stock.

The pressure test boxes are now significantly more durable and resistant than before, thanks to the even more robust design of the actual cases and the foam inserts. This makes them ideal for use under adverse conditions, e.g. at construction sites. Service engineers additionally benefit from the redesigned plastic closures which make accidental opening of the cases practically impossible. This prevents damage to and loss of the test devices, e.g. during transport in the service vehicle, as far as possible. The optimisation placed a special focus on the design of the foam inserts which ensure safe positioning of the individual components while allowing easy removal. Careful selection of the correct material additionally provides outstanding long-term resistance against common hydraulic media.
