Bursting pressure resistance tests (burst tests)

Burst tests, commonly called burst pressure resistance tests, are typically carried out at pressures up to 1000 bar with different media at varying ambient temperatures.
Pressure range
  • 0 - 1100 bar - standard
  • > 1100 bar - to be agreed
  • hydraulic oil
  • water
  • glycol
  • brake fluid
  • Other media, to be agreed
Temperature range
  • from -40°C to +180°C
  • from ambient temperature to +250°C
Pressure change shape
  • practically any – to be agreed with the customer
  • high accuracy of tracking the required pressure shape
Data acquisition
  • Pressure and temperature data acquisition throughout the test
Tests may apply to
  • Heat exchangers
  • Brake Master Cylinders
  • Brake Calipers
  • Whell Brake Cylinder
  • Brake lines
  • Brake hoses
  • and other
