Pump Testing and Diagnosis Services

We ensure that all work is carried out to the highest standards and fully tested prior to reinstallation, providing performance analysis and pump curves as required for added assurance.


After pump repair or servicing, we use an array of specialised facilities to fully test each pump, including temperature and vibration. A full performance test curve is also provided prior to dispatch to confirm optimum performance and provide engineers with a datum to work from when installing the pump. Dedicated test areas include:

Small/medium test rig: full load testing up to 500kW, flow up to 10,000 igpm, + 2,700 M3/Hr and heads up to 10,000 ft, 150 Bar and 2170 PSI. Net Positive Suction Head tests can be carried out in house and our hydrostatic pressure test rig can test up to 250 Bar.

Large test rig: Bespoke testing facility for high flows that can be customised to suit your requirements. We also partner with a local dry dock to test larger pumps, submersible and vertical, up to 11kV.

All testing is carried out in accordance with BS EN ISO 9906-2000; API 610 or customers’ specified standard.

We also offer on site support services including installation and removal of pump, laser alignment, condition monitoring (including vibration and thermographic analysis), balancing and repairs on site. Onsite performance analysis can also be undertaken to test the performance of the pump in operation.
