Pressure Test Stands For
Home Appliance Components

Appliance manufacturers know the importance of making sure their products are leak-free from day one. Furthermore, it is vital that components can withstand a higher pressure load than the operating pressure. Accordingly, home appliance components such as pipes and tubes frequently undergo (destructive) hydrostatic burst pressure and leak tests. On some occasions, a component may even require a water hammer test. Testing processes performed can be time-consuming; ranging from a few seconds for small items up to more than a minute, even hours or days for some applications. Poppe + Potthoff Maschinenbau offers a range of pressure test rigs to support home appliance manufacturers to put their components to the test.

Burst Test Rig

Hose Test Bench with Laser Measurement

When hoses are subjected to pressure, they often change from their original form and dimension. The test stand has an integrated automatic laser and length measurement system and can measure torsion easily. In addition, a quick connector system enables the hoses to be replaced rapidly.

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.

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

Standard Pressure Cycle Test Rig 500 / 1000 / 2000 bar

Our standard pressure cycle test bench serves as the basis for many of our systems. Thus, it can be upgraded with a wide variety of configurations such as media heating and cooling, high or low-pressure ranges and much more.

Pressure Cycle Test Rig

Water Hammer Test up to 60 bar

The pressure test rig enables manufacturers of home appliances to simulate water hammer effects up to 60 bar. Usually, water is used as a test medium and can be heated up to 85°C.

Leak Test Rig

Test Stand for Pumps, Fittings and Valves

Test rig for leak and hydrostatic burst pressure testing up to 60 bar. Our rig is equipped with our patented fine pressure control method with 0.1 bar increments. Consequentially, it facilitates reliable and repeatable test processes for comparable results and data acquisition to understand the DUT (device under test) behaviour in operation.

Burst Test Rig

Burst Test Stand up to 2 000 bar

Media-carrying components are exposed to a wide variety of conditions. Thus, the material strength of pumps, hoses, tubes, pipelines and many other pressure vessels is validated by applying dynamic and static pressure.

Leak Test Rig

Multipurpose Leak Test Rig

Depending on the requirement, the test pressure is generated with a pressure pump, our patented fine pressure control method. Alternatively for more complex testing via a pneumatic or hydraulic pressure intensifier. In addition, a leak is automatically detected and registered in the system. The low-pressure systems are developed for low-pressure, vacuum, air or nitrogen tests.

Burst Test Rig

Burst Test Stand up to 200 bar

In order to prove the quality of media-carrying components, hoses, lines, pipes and many other pressure vessels are pressurized until they burst. Accordingly, our standard pressure test bench can be equipped with a simple pump solution or a high-tech hydraulic intensifier to adjust to your needs.

Hoses, pipes and tube connections for industry
must safely withstand defined pressures.
