Die-Sep will officially introduce its Model 212 portable Mold Water Leak Tester at NPE2015. Designed for testing for water leaks in molds, the device has a 25-gallon capacity water tank and 13 testing circuits. Twelve of the circuits have individual supply and discharge valves that are connected to hoses by quick-disconnect fittings, while the 13th circuit is fitted with cam-lock fittings to test the circuits through the mold’s water manifold.

The water pump provides flow of 3 gpm ranging to 45 lbs of pressure. Additional pressure ranging to 125 lbs can be reached by connecting shop air though the tester’s air supply inlet. Flow can be shown through a flow indicator and is calibrated by a digital flow meter. The 120-V system also includes a pressure gage and an easy-change water filter. Large, lockable casters enable ease of movement around the toolroom, and a fork pocket allows for longer moves with a fork truck. Pre-drilled holes in the upper covering allow for installation of fittings with nuts to serve as a hose rack.
