Hydrajaws is a brand name for a Pull-Out Testers. At AML Instruments, we can calibrate both branded and non-branded Pull-Out Testers. Other brands of Pull-Out Testers we calibrate on a regular basis
There are two critical parts to a hydra jaw/Pull-Out Tester, the pressure gauge, and the force/pulling mechanism.
Best practice dictates that both the pressure gauge and force application mechanism are calibrated as a pair. This is done by using a custom force application rig and a highly accurate master load cell. Force is applied to both mechanism and the pressure gauge simultaneously ensure a real world and not theoretical calibration of your Pull-Out Tester!
To ensure accuracy, it is critical to calibrate both parts of your Hydrajaws or Pull-Out Tester. Sadly, some calibration companies including manufactures of this type of equipment do not!
We offer hydrajaws/Pull-Out Tester calibration service back at our temperature-controlled Lincolnshire laboratory.
As standard, our lab turnaround time is five working days, but by arrangement, we offer an express 24 or 48-hour service.
Onsite Pull-Out Tester calibration, cannot spare your Hydrajaws Pull-Out Tester we can visit you onsite anywhere in the UK or Europe! Our custom calibration rig is portable and can calibration any Pull-Out Tester onsite, typical calibration time under 1 hour.
This can be particularly cost effective if you have a number of Pull-Out Testers or other equipment out engineer could calibrate at the same time.
Engineers typically use Hydrajaws to conduct pull-out tests on critical safety anchors, lifeline systems, fasteners and fixings to ensure they can cope with an applied load. These Pull-Out Testers are widely used across the Construction industry.
Below are some of the typical test’s engineers carry out with a Hydrajaw or Pull-Out Tester.
AML Instruments is a family-run calibration business centrally located in the UK. Our engineers have vast experience of calibrating precision testing equipment, from ground scales and weights to torque instruments.
Below are the general areas we regularly carry out our calibration services.
