Test Stand Services

Our engineering and service team have the expertise to build custom industrial test stands, truck mounted equipment, and test cells. These various test equipment systems can be used to test system and production assumptions, verify power requirements, and supply data for larger scale projects.

Project ID and Development

convert drawings into 3d models to visual final custom test stand solution

We start by listening to customer requirements to create a functional specification and single-line diagrams. Creating orthographic and 3D model drawings, we begin to visualize the final solution. Through design review, we verify the safety and design functionality to ensure the best arrangement for system equipment, operating requirements, space constraints, and observance of best practices.

OEM Supplier to Turnkey Construction

single point of contact for design, development, manufacturing, and implementation of custom industrial test stands

Your requirements define our role. We can provide equipment and services as an OEM supplier, a contributing vendor, a project management team, general or specialized engineering support, or a complete solution as a turn-key contractor providing on-site construction. As your single point of contact, we handle every aspect of your project from design and development to manufacturing and implementation

Control and Automation

test stand use separate computerized operator control center

Precision control and data gathering can be managed through system HMI screens configured according to your operating requirements. Closed circuit video feeds allow monitoring of the test area away from potential hazards during test operation.

Premium Support

premium support for custom test stands

We provide repair, retrofit, and replacement options for a wide range of industrial equipment, servicing most manufacturers’ components whether integrated by Quad Plus or others. Your existing test facility may not need replacement if economical service options offer an economic alternative.


Large Pump Test Stand Technical Capabilities

electrically activated choke for large pump test stands

Electrically Activated Choke

The adjustable choke allows for testing under a range of pressures due to adjustable flow restrictions. Electric operation allows remote control with fewer points for maintenance, more precise adjustment including a range from 150 psi to15,000 psi, better resistance to washout damage, and reduced piping cost.

operational data and reporting for custom test stands

Data Acquisition for Analysis

Configured according to customer requirements, data captured during test stand operations can provide documentation of each single unit tested and a collection of data for predictive analysis of multiple units over a production run. In addition, operational data of the test stand can offer opportunities for monitoring and analysis for asset predictive maintenance periods.

large equipment testing facilities use blast resist cell enclosure

Blast Resist Cell Enclosure

Quad Plus recommends that large equipment tests facilities incorporate hardened or blast resistant enclosures for protection of equipment and personnel in the event of a catastrophic test failure. Units under large stresses can result in rapid discharge of pressurized fluids, toxic fumes and shrapnel depending on the magnitude of the test.

test stand and testing equipment on truck systems

Electric and Truck Test Cell

Cells for component level and installed products differ by the space and the support connections required. Truck mounted equipment receive lubrication and control connections from the truck systems. Location determines requirements for engine exhaust remediation.

truck cell shore power test cell and testing equipment

Truck Cell Shore Power

Testing electrically-powered systems may require support for MV and/or LV power feeds to support the shore power connections of mobile equipment such as E-Frac systems. Capacity of the power feeds depend on the type of testing to be completed within the test cell.

test requirements, research, and verify using flow loops

Flow Loops

Test requirements can include multiple flow loops to simulate varying conditions for component research or verification testing.


Test Stand for Oil and Gas Equipment

A recent project produced a high horsepower (HP) stand to test hydraulic fracturing pumps following manufacture or repair. The scope of the project was to build a solution that included design, manufacturing and installation on site. The stand supports pumps from 1000 to 3000 HP with flows of up to 1,400 gal / min at 15,000 psi. Water used to test the pumps goes through a reclamation treatment system for subsequent test sessions. Lubrication for the power end and fluid end of the pump under test is integrated into the test stand. The system includes:

  • Electric drive-Completely managed by variable frequency drive
  • Test data acquisition-configurable for reporting
  • Control for multiple testing profiles
  • Multi-station closed circuit Television (CCTV) with integrated thermal imaging
  • An electrically activated choke
  • E-house for operator interaction with the test stand

Quad Plus provided the systems integration to deliver an extremely functional and reliable solution allowing the customer to improve the design of their pumps and meet the extreme demands of their clients.

Test Stands combines many facets of our business, the engineering from C&A, the automation and drive systems business, manufacturing and process control, project management, site execution. It combines the different business units skill sets and talents into one project or type of project.
