Comec VPT160 Pressure Tester for Cylinder Heads and Blocks





VPT160 is a hydraulic pressure tester that allows, with precision and ease, detection of possible cracks and leakage of cylinder heads and blocks by immersion in hot water.

The tank, complete with its cover, is manufactured of stainless steel and perfectly insulated to avoid heating dispersion. The water is heated by two powerful heating elements that operate independently and are controlled by an automatic timer which includes heating programs to optimize and reduce the electric usage.

This machine can contain heads and blocks up to 1340 mm of length.
The head is clamped on a cradle actuated by an hydraulic power unit that can move particularly heavy heads and blocks. This cradle also revolves of 360°, allowing the visibility of the whole head, even if when totally submerged, for an easy and prompt detection of leakage.
