RDP Electronics offers high-pressure transducers for a range of applications — notably in burst pressure testing to the point of destruction to determine the design limits of components.

In industries including aerospace, nuclear, chemical and oil and gas, components that are critical to the performance of equipment, such as hydraulic hoses, can be subjected to burst testing regimes.

These regimes are also suitable for testing contraceptive devices to ensure they meet specifications and do not leak.

RDP pressure transducers can be combined with E725 digital units to form systems that will allow the monitoring of pressure testing to destruction.

Burst pressure testing

  • Burst pressure testing is typically performed to determine how much overload a part or system can endure before failure.
  • This process also helps to determine component design limits.

RDP Electronics – experts in measurement solutions

Measurement experts RDP Electronics Ltd have 45 years experience in developing transducers for a diverse range of applications in research, prototype testing, industrial plant and machinery, or embodied in products. Examples are numerous, spanning industries that include aerospace, automotive, structural engineering and power generation. The company is responsible for the development and manufacture of a comprehensive programmme of transducer products and associated electronics to recognised international standards for accurate and reliable measurement of displacement, load, pressure and torque. Often the best solutions have a simple elegance that is possible thanks in part to the quality and high reliability of the transducers they supply. Because of their knowledge and expertise RDP’s skilled engineering team is frequently invited to propose solutions to measurement challenges.

RDP Design, manufacture and market a wide range of LVDT and other displacement transducers. LVDT Displacement transducers accurately measure position and displacement. The strength of the LVDT is in its principle of operation. As LVDT sensors are inductive, there is no electrical connection across the sensing element ensuring clean data and a long life.

The LVDT operation principle lends itself to use in extreme environments. LVDTs can be made to work submerged in sea water, in temperatures of 600°C (1100°F) in high nuclear ratiation and at pressures of up to 2000bar (30,000psi).
