Burst Pressure Test Benches up to 15,000 bar (220,000 psi)
Burst Test with (heated) Oil, Water, Brake Fluids, Water Emulsion and more | Fatigue Test | Break Test | Crack Test
In order to prove the quality of the fluid-carrying parts, all hoses, pipes, pressure vessels and other components are put under pressure until they burst. The process is precisely measured and documented in order to optimally design the components for specific applications. The Poppe + Potthoff test benches are equipped with controllable pressure ramps and holding times to suit your specific testing requirements. Our test benches are CE and UL certified and can be adjusted to any type of norms such as ISO, AES and more. Burst tests can be completed for all sorts of components such as pipes, hoses, tubes, oil coolers, valves, hydraulics and various other pressure vessels made of metal, plastics or other materials.

Especially for your applications
Expertise, proximity to the market and love for the product are our guarantee of success. We are proud of being able to implement leading-edge concepts for testing. We work with our own software applications in LabVIEW and provide you with a highly qualified service team.
For different burst pressure test benches, click the following applications:
Engineering and automotive
In machinery and vehicles fluid-carrying components are exposed to extreme conditions. The capacity of pumps, pressure vessels, tubes and pipes made of metal or plastic is tested by means of dynamic and static pressure tests.
Optional in the climatic chamber
The component tests are requested depending on application with different test fluids under varying temperature conditions. Poppe + Potthoﬀ provides test benches designed for this purpose with quick change device for the test pieces and an optional air chamber.
- Burst pressure from 0 to 4.000 bar
- Fast printing structure and extensive acquisition of measurement data
- Tests at -60 ° C to +180 °C with brake fluid, water, water emulsion or oil
Poppe + Potthoﬀ Engineering develops and manufactures customer-specific equipment for testing items in operation and under fatigue. On these test benches, fittings, hoses and other hydraulic components can be tested until they burst.
Pressure and volume can be precisely increased up to max. 15 000 bar, decreased, or maintained at a constant level. As a specialist for high-pressure applications Poppe + Potthoﬀ offers more performance classes.
- Max. pressure up to 15.000 bar
- 100 000 values measured per second
- Component part tempering -60 °C to +180 °C
- Special technology for extremely large fill and discharge volumes
The test stand is a stand-alone operating system. It was developed specifically for the plastic industry. The test items can be easily adapted with quick connectors. Furthermore, a quick-change device can be used to perform the mountings by testing by hand outside the test chamber.
For the burst test, two test circuits with different working styles are available. Up to 50 bar is possible by the wear-free precision control method, a very precise pressure rise. In another test circuit operates a pneumatically driven pressure translator, with a pressure up to 400 bar can be generated. The test medium is normal mains water or test oil. The test stand can be equipped with a hand-held scanner for identification of the components, thus the burst pressures attributable to each component.
- Burst pressure up to 400 bar
- 0 – 50 bar fine pressure control
- Tests with different fluids and temperature
Pipes and pipe components
Hose, pipes and pipe joints for the industry must safely withstand defined pressures. To test their quality prove they are acted upon by pressure, partly to
failure or bursting.
These test benches of Poppe + Potthoﬀ use a novel technology, which makes it possible to determine burst pressure in just fractions of a second and thus too prove and document the quality of the components used, in the shortest time ed.
- Burst pressure up to 4.500 bar
- Robust test chamber with freely programmable pressure ramp
- Bursting with hydraulically controlled pressure intensifier
