Testbed - DESMI HQ
The DESMI headquarters in Nørresundby, Denmark are equipped testbed facilities for both Centrifugal and ROTAN pumps.
CENTRIFUGAL PUMP TEST BENCH
The Centrifugal Pump testbed was established in 1977 and rebuild in 2017. The tests are performed in a "closed loop" system with water from an isolated water reservoir containing 150 thousand litres of water. The system is capable of performing capacity tests as well as tests of noise- and vibration levels on Centrifugal Pumps of all types and sizes. Additionally, flow-tests are performed with ranges from 0-2400 m3/h.
Centrifugal pumps with electric motors are tested from 0-320kW while the facility is also equipped with an area dedicated to testing pumps with diesel-driven motors.
ROTAN PUMP TEST BENCH
ROTAN pumps are manufactured in accordance with DESMI's quality management system, which is certified by BVQI in accordance with the requirements of ISO 9001
On the ROTAN testbed, the pumps are tested both statically and dynamically. Static pressure testing is conducted to make sure that the pump do not leak and that they can maintain the specified maximum operating pressure. The dynamic test is conducted to ensure that the pump can deliver the specified volume of liquid at the specified pressures.
Furthermore, ROTAN pumps are tested within a number of additional criteria to make sure that the pumps are ready for operation.
