101 Series – Pressure Test Unit without a tank

Need a Pressure Test Unit without a tank? The Trident 101 Series is normally sold with an 8 litre tank but there are applications where it is not required. Some of the common ones are as follows.

Low Pressure

One application is where the flow rate of the pump is so high the tank would be emptied too fast. This is often the case with the lower pressure pumps like the 5:1 that flows up to 10 litres per minute.

Light Weight

A full tank is going to weigh approx. 10 kg. If you are going to be carrying the unit around the weight can make a difference!

Flexibility of Fluids

Using a tank means it can be impractical to change test fluids. You need to drain and clean the tank every time you use a different fluid. Without a tank you just need to select the supply you need. The other way we recently quoted a customer was with a tank that would hold oil and a three way ball valve on the inlet that could be connected to an external water supply.


Another good reason to go without the tank is for cost. The tank is the most expensive part of the fabrication so removing it can give you some good savings. Just connect  your mains water supply or a remote tank to the inlet and you are ready to go.
