The leadership team at Power Test realizes that we are facing a very unique situation with the COVID-19 virus. We want to reiterate that our focus is on our loyal Customers, our dedicated employees, and our communities at large.
The experts have painted a sobering picture for Wisconsin. We are sure this is true for where ever you are located and reading this. We have about 6 million residents in the state. It was determined that 5% of our state population will be affected, resulting in about 300,000 people needing special care. Of those, 20% will require hospitalization. That is 60,000 people vying for fewer than 4,000 ICU and critical care beds in the entire state. Power Test is committed to “flattening the curve”.
Here is what we are doing to support our Customers, Employees and Communities:
We moved about 90% of our Office, Sales and Service staff to remote working situations
The company has been divided into two separate groups to ensure business continuity
These two group are working out of 3 self-contained areas and are divided by a 30-minute break between shifts to clean and sanitize our work spaces.
Financially, we have a company record backlog that we will continue to work on through August of this year. Leadtimes will continue to come down, quality will be a focus and capacity will open, especially for the 3rd and 4th quarters
Power Test has been through three major economic dips in the last 19 years and keeps coming out stronger because we developed and executed our strategic and tactical plans. This situation will be no different. We thank you for choosing the Power Test family of brands: Super Flow, Pivotal Pumps, AIDCO, Stuska, Axiline, Hicklin, and TCRS. Please contact your Sales or Service representative if you have any questions or concerns.

The customer needed a flexible system that would allow no-load spin testing, but on multiple different configurations of industrial compressors. This was a priority requirement for end-of-line testing.
Custom Engineered Solution:
The CES team made the customer a flexible system that includes a hydraulic pump as well as a motor prime mover system to spin the units under test. The hydraulic motor is contained in its own frame that is balanced on a tool balancer. This allows the customer to easily align the prime mover to the compressor at the start of the test. Plus, there is a complete hydraulic system that provides proper oil flow, pressure, and temperature to the unit under test while also monitoring the cleanliness of the fluid.
