Cylinder Head and Block Pressure Tester

Pressure Testing Is Very Profitable. 1 Job Per Week Pays For The Equipment.

Award winning design. The most reliable and complete crack testing method includes heated and curculated in line system with air pressure. This method will find cracks that Air testing will not find. The system is very fast and can pressure test Automotive & Diesel Heads and Blocks.

About

The Newclear Pressure Tester is a revolutionary new machine that has been specifically designed for the automotive engineering industry. It has the capability to effectively test various cylinder heads and blocks e.g. a single Honda cylinder head, a Cummins 350 big cam block or a cummins NH block.

The main features of the Newclear Pressure Tester are one of total visibility through a transparent pressure plate with a 360° rotation capacity as well as an adjustable center of gravity to allow rotation of either a cylinder head or block to take place with ease. It is a complete unit with the added advantages of an in-line heater system which can provide hot and cold hydraulic testing capabilities and a quick set-up time.

  • Clear visibility.
  • Simple and quick set up time.
  • In-line heater system for hot / cold water testing.
  • Universal side clamping system.
  • Complete rubber blanking-off element kit to suit most cylinder heads / blocks.
  • Adjustable center of gravity for ease of rotating cylinder heads / blocks 360°.

PRESSURE TESTING A MUST!!!

All Cylinder Heads and Blocks should be pressure tested especially the “Cooked” ones.

With today’s modern Multi-Valve Light weight, high output Aluminium Cylinder Heads with Cast Iron Blocks, it has become essential to have a good quality hot and cold Hydraulic Pressure Tester.

The Most Important Criteria to Meet is that of :

Eliminating Comebacks

The customer must be confident that the “Problem” has been positively identified. Major Piston manufacturers and Cylinder Head Gasket manufacturers that have been consulted have confirmed the need for High Quality Pressure Testing to take place when an engine is reconditioned or remanufactured.

With the great difference in Expansion Rates between aluminium, cast iron and modern light weight design, it has become essential to have a High Quality Pressure Test done in order to detect Fractures and Porosity in cores.

 

Tests have proven :

that some cores only fracture on disassembly and not when the engine overheats, that some fractures are only evident after a Cold Hydraulic Test, then a Hot Hydraulic Test followed by another Cold Hydraulic Test. It is important to note that these three tests have to be carried out in rapid succession – 10 minutes maximu

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you pressure test blocks ?

Yes – System has an adjustable centre of gravity and special safety clamps to make rotating of blocks while pressure testing, safe and simple.

Do you have to pressure test all heads in a hot condition?

No – Most cracks are easily indentified using cold water and air pressure
but the hot water facility is always available.

Are you able to get spares?

Yes – Loose spares are always available.

Who uses this machine?

All big and small automotive rebuilders who need to identify problem heads and eliminate comebacks.

What if there is a leak in the oil gallery?

Some heads can be repaired – most are then scrapped.

Can you pressure test V Heads?

Yes – All angles.

Can you pressure test Cat Heads?

Yes – Maximum length is 1200mm

Does a qualified man need to operate the machine?

No – the system is very simple and one can be guided, with the supplied workshop manual and the training video.

Why do we need to pressure test?

To give a professional service and eliminate comebacks which means a loss of profit.

Can the machine be used in a production line environment?

The machine can be modified to suite some production lines.

Should you have an unusual head (very uncommon) how do you pressure test?

We can custom make rubber blanking elements – but over the years we have added most blanking elements that should be required.

Hot Water, Cold Water and Air Test

The customer must be confident that the “Problem” has been positively
identified. Major Piston manufacturers and Cylinder Head Gasket
manufacturers that have been consulted have confirmed the need for
High Quality Pressure Testing to take place when an engine is reconditioned
or remanufactured.

Transparent Plate in Frame gives clear visibility to pinpoint exactly where
head may be leaking e.g. crack down a belt hole, cracked in the oil gallery,
cracked underneath a seat, porosity leaking or cracked from a jacket to a
seat.

Rubber blanking off elements – full set provided which will suit most heads
used internationally.

Rubber blanking element kit provides manifold blanking rubber to allow inlet
and outlet flow of water / air through water ports on top of cylinder head.

Heads and blocks can be rotated 360 degrees.

V10 Mercedes Benz blocks can be pressure tested and rotated.

Submergible Type

Large container of water which needs to be constantly heated up to
maintain temperature.
Head cannot be cooled down upon com-pletion of test, danger to operater.

Water gets dirty fairly quickly. Bubbles appear and one is not sure if a
rubber stopper is leaking or a crack – you cannot pinpoint the exact
location of the leak.The rubber gasket / steel plate tends to cover areas
which may be cracked e.g. jacket to valve seat.

Rubber gasket steel plate – each head needs it’s own plate – expensive and time
consuming locating the correct plate to suit each head.

Special inlet ports on the side of the heads need to be made to suite different
heads.
