“The PPM-B test stands can be used everywhere”, explains Stefan Dreyer, CEO at Poppe + Potthoff Maschinenbau GmbH in Nordhausen, Germany. “Depending on the application – whether it is for testing pumps, tubes for AC systems, braking, hydraulic or tube systems – the system is customized for a bursting pressure between 10 and 10,000 bar.”
Poppe + Potthoff uses an innovative technology for building up pressure that is faster, more precise and requires less maintenance than other systems. The system uses a large pressure booster for quick priming and a smaller one for precise adjusting. Available test media include water, emulsions, oil and brake fluids.
This way, the quality of the components to be tested can be assessed and documented easily and quickly – with a precision of up to 100,000 results per second. All data is saved automatically and connected via local interface to the graphical programming Environment LabVIEW (National Instruments) and the local network.
