Media-carrying components, e.g. for cooling and heating systems, must endure extreme load changes while operating highly efficiently, especially in electric vehicles.
Manufacturers can now precisely analyze their products with pressure and temperature cycling test benches as well as the function test systems from Poppe + Potthoff Maschinenbau.
Functional test benches test heating and cooling units for e-mobility. During life cycle tests, performance as well as power consumption are evaluated to detect and eliminate weak points.
The test medium circulates at a freely controllable temperature of -40 °C to +100 °C. Optionally, the test can be performed in a climatic chamber at -40 °C to +140 °C to simulate changing ambient temperatures.
Our pressure cycling test rigs enable tests at temperature differences that are rare even for endurance tests on the Nürburgring race track, in the Siberian tundra or in the deserts of Africa.
For impulse testing followed by long-term pressure and burst testing, our systems offer two chambers in each of which up to ten test specimens can be tested simultaneously at an ambient temperature of -60°C to +180°C or room climate.
In electric vehicles, media-carrying components are exposed to extreme conditions. The load-bearing capacity of pumps, pressure vessels, hose and pipe lines made of metal or plastic is verified with dynamic and statistical pressure tests.More about our E-Mobility products
