Pressure Test Rigs For

At Poppe + Potthoff we support the Automotive industry with state-of-the-art pressure test stands. Automotive components are versatile and entail components exposed to high pressures such as common rails with an operating pressure of 3000 bar to plastic components for air conditioning applications or cooling circuits up to 20 bar. Our pressure test rigs can support your requirements in any pressure range and are equipped to handle various types of media such as oil, air, gas, water, water glycol, coolant, brake fluid and many more.

Burst Test Rig

Large Components | Burst- and Pressure Cycle Test Rig

The test stand has two large chambers in which individual burst pressure and pressure cycle tests can be executed. Our state-of-the-art P+P flex pressure intensifier covers large components, such as accumulators, and generates pressure load changes of up to 800 bar with a frequency of up to 10 Hz.

Burst Test Rig

Pipe and Hose Test Bench

Hoses, pipes and pipe connections must reliably withstand operational pressures and predefined pressures during testing. To prove the component and material quality, they are exposed to pressure, sometimes to the point of failure or bursting.

Burst Test Rig

High-Pressure Burst Test Stand

Components are exposed to extremely high pressures during operation and must be tested for quality and material fatigue. Our high-pressure test bench for burst pressure tests up to 15,000 bar can put any component to the test.


Autofrettage for R&D and Prototypes

The autofrettage system is ideal for research and development and prototype manufacturing. The rig enables manufacturers to mount different components with a flexible fixture system. Therefore a high variety of components, designs and prototypes can be autofretted on the system.


Autofrettage for (Diesel) Injection Lines

High-pressure lines such as diesel injection lines (common rails) are autofrettaged for continuous use with pulsating pressure in series production. By applying the autofrettage process component service life can be increased by up to 30%.


Common Rail Serial Production Autofrettage

This state-of-the-art autofrettage system is the perfect solution for the serial production of common rails. Our flagship system is utilized by manufacturers around to world. It enables improvement of the fatigue strength of common rails, injection lines and other components.


Multipurpose Autofrettage

Our multipurpose autofrettage system is ideal for research and development. In addition, is also well equipped for smaller serial production lines up to 13000 bar.

Burst Test Rig
Pressure Cycle Test Rig

Burst and Pressure Cycle Test Stand

A state-of-the-art dual chamber test rig for simultaneous burst and pressure pulsation testing. The rig enables testing flexibility in your lab. A media heating and cooling unit can be installed to cover an even wider range of test requirements.

Pressure Cycle Test Rig

Double Chamber Test Rig for Burst and Pressure Cycle Tests of Coolant Hoses

Our flagship double-chamber test bench can test up to 10 DUTs (e.g. coolant hoses) simultaneously. In addition, we enable ambient and fluid temperatures of -60°C to 180°C. Further, our test rig is equipped with separate 3x media circuits to enable testing with oil, water and water glycol emulsion for dynamic pressure cycle and burst testing up to 800 bar.

Pressure Cycle Test Rig

Pressure Cycle Test Bench up to 6000 bar

Various components, such as diesel injection lines, pipes, and sensors are exposed to very high pulsating pressures. Consequentially, to understand the longevity of the material and component quality the service life is tested during long-term pressure cycle tests.

Common Rails

Even if e-mobility is on the rise and many investments are made in the development of new components and technologies, the combustion engine is still an integral part of the future. We offer state-of-the-art test benches for carrying out autofrettage processes and common rails, pump heads, and injection lines for research and development, as well as series production. In addition, we support customers with bursting pressure, leakage and pulse pressure test benches for various components.
