Test field/testing stand
Test running your rotating drive gives a guarantee of quality and availability
Professional testing stand
Assuring quality and guaranteeing the reliability of the equipment is one of the most important aspects at Van Meer. For this reason we have a professionally equipped testing stand on which each machine undergoes full test running (unloaded) both on arrival (in test) and prior to dispatch (out test). Our testing stand is automated and has the capacity to test run a number of electric motors at the same time. Larger batches can then be processed and fully tested with a short turnaround time.
Test results and reporting
All results are then digitally recorded and sent to the end customer in the form of a test report which includes electrical, mechanical and vibration tolerance values.
Measurements on our test field
The following measurements are carried out as standard on low and high voltage machines:
- mOhm measurement
- Insulation resistances measurement 0-12kV
- DAR (Dielectric Absorption Ratio) measurement
- PS (Polarisation index) measurement
- Surge test measurement 0-12kV
- Vibration measurements
Extra measurements can optionally also be carried out on high voltage machines:
- Identification of dielectric losses
- Tangent Delta (identification of partial discharge)
- Partial discharge measurement
Loaded testing, pressure and leak tests
Loaded test running is also an option on the testing stand. An electric motor is then connected to a generator that is tested in the loaded state by a frequency converter control. Our testing stand can load motors with a test voltage of up to 10 kV. Van Meer can also conduct pressure and leak tests on pump installations.
