Pressure Test Stands For

Poppe + Potthoff test stands are used in research & development and to constantly benchmark the manufacturing process and H2 component quality. Consequentially they are used to guarantee the safety of media-carrying components during their entire service life. Hence, components must undergo endurance tests under extreme pressure pulsations and temperature changes. P+P offers flexible solutions while simulating diverse conditions and environmental changes.

Alongside pressure cycle test rigs, burst- and leak test solutions, we also offer a state-of-the-art 1050 bar gas leak test system for hydrogen component development. The rig enables the use of nitrogen, and helium as well as a moulder gas hydrogen blend of 95/5.

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.

Pressure Cycle Test Rig

Pressure Testing H2 Components

Our flagship H2 test bench is utilised in research & development. In addition, it is used for constant benchmarking of the manufacturing process to validate H2 component quality. The rig is qualified to test H2 components such as 0n-tank valves, sensors, hoses, fuel cell components and more.

Leak Test Rig

Leak Test Rig up to 1050 bar with Gas (Helium, Nitrogen, H2)

Our state-of-the-art 1050 bar gas leak test stand is a first of its kind in the hydrogen testing industry. Consequentially, leak tests can be performed with 95/5 moulder gas / H2, helium or nitrogen. While a leak is detected by a sniffer unit such as e.g. Inficon P3000XL.

Pressure Cycle Test Rig

Pressure Pulsation Test Rig up to 600 bar

Our flagship pressure cycle test bench is a powerful and versatile pressure test bench that exposes pressure vessels to changing pressure loads. For example, cooling circuits, sensors, hoses and many others components are put to a lifetime test by applying pressure cycles. Further, a climate chamber and media heating and cooling unit enable real-life conditions. In addition, a controlled media flow can be generated up to 60 l/min.
