Test benches for leak and pressure tests
The leakage and pressure resistance of components is important in many areas, e.g. for security and / or cost reasons, important. It is therefore often necessary to carry out a corresponding component test. We have already been able to implement numerous projects for a wide variety of customer-specific requirements. Typical test items here are, for example, valves, pumps, hoses and others.
EPE offers you leakage test benches for different pressure ranges, both in the low pressure and high pressure range. We also build burst pressure and pressure resistance test benches to test the pressure of elements under pressure. The components to be tested are pressurized, if necessary, until they burst.
For our test systems, we offer you our own software applications (e.g. in LabVIEW) in which hardware and software are perfectly coordinated.
From charge air coolers for cars to inhalers for asthma sprays, we have already developed and implemented test benches for all conceivable test items. Introduce us to your requirements!
