Pressure test of components

A special burst testing room in the Mechanical Laboratory in Borås enables us to pressurise components to failure. We also have a pressure chamber in which components can be subjected to external pressure while electrical signals provide information on conditions in them.

Items under test can be pressurised up to 2000 bar by liquid, or up to 200 bar by gas. We also perform hydraulic fatigue tests and long-term pressure tests. If necessary, components can be tested under controlled high or low temperature conditions.
