EP EHRLER PRÜFTECHNIK ENGINEERING GMBH
Analysing the gas quality in the gas network is essential to monitor technical specifications and ensure correct billing. The GasPro is a mobile gas sampler, with which cyclic sampling can be carried out easily and flexibly at any point from dry gas networks. The samples are collected in a sample cylinder in the GasPro and can then be analysed in a laboratory. The GasPro allows the separation of sampling and sample analysis and is therefore more cost effective and flexible than for example fixed installed gas chromatographs.
With our HPT heat pump test bench you can simulate humidity as well as temperature. The test stand is used for functional testing of air-to-water heat pumps according to DIN EN 14511.
Current test systems on the market, which are used to test e.g. air-to-water heat pumps, are climatic chambers with a cooling, heating and humidification unit fixed to the roof. The disadvantage of this concept is that it is not possible to set a homogeneous temperature and humidity distribution in the cube-shaped room. Based on test engineering concepts in the automotive industry, EP-E developed a concept in which the air flows in a closed loop (loop design).
The HPT heat pump test stand is a closed-loop test stand for functional testing of air-to-water heat pumps according to DIN EN 14511. The advantageous closed-loop design uses an insulated chamber with conditioning units for temperature and humidity outside the chamber.
Apparatus for pressurizing test pieces
We offer burst test benches to test load-bearing elements under pressure for their resilience. The components to be tested are put under pressure until they burst. Depending on the requirements (e.g. depending on the medium, pressure range, static or pulsating tests) we build your customized test stand.
Over the last few years, we at EP-E have designed and introduced a series of primary standards for gases, designed for use in calibration laboratories. As a technology partner of the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) in Braunschweig, our solutions are based on the highest standards.
The EP gas bell plungers generate a volume flow which is traceable to the SI units length and time. The pistons are driven by a stepper motor via a spindle. In the initial state one piston is fully retracted and the other fully extended. The volume flow can be set with high precision via the piston cross section and the travel speed. At the end of the calibration process, both pistons are in the opposite position to the initial position. The calibration device is preferably operated with air, which can be supplied with up to 6 bar. The EP gas bell pistons convince by highest measuring accuracy up to 0.15% (k=2).
The rotary gas meters GM4 and GM16 meet the highest demands for reliable and precise reference measurement of smallest quantities up to 0.01 m³/h. They operate according to the direct displacement principle (RPD - rotary positive displacement), in which two counter-rotating pistons convey a fixed volume from the inlet to the outlet of the gas meter with each full revolution. Due to the specially shaped pistons, absolutely pulsation-free operation can be achieved (patent pending). They achieve an excellent measuring accuracy of 0.5 % MW + 0.005 % EW. Both versions are suitable for operation up to 6 bar overpressure. With continuous, absolutely pulsation-free and highly precise flow measurement, the reference gas meters from Ehrler Prüftechnik are the gold standard in the field of small volume measurement.

The high-precision calibration laboratory is accredited according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025 for flow calibration of flowing gases.
The EP calibration laboratory is accredited by the DAkkS according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005 for calibrations of gases in-house and on-site under the procedure number D-K-21444-01-00. We offer calibrations for gas flow measurement as well as temperature, humidity and pressure measurements. In addition, we calibrate all measured variables of the test bench directly at your site. Our experienced technicians also check the harmonious interaction of all sensors, so that the entire system is perfectly tuned. The opening of our new calibration laboratory in Asia enables us to offer you even better service internationally.
With the purge air method, heat recovery for balanced air mass flows can be determined for alternating, decentralised ventilation units. The uncertainties of the direct measuring method used so far due to inhomogeneous velocity and temperature profiles at the outlet of the ventilation units are circumvented by the scavenging air method and the measuring accuracy is higher. With the optional humidity conditioning the moisture recovery can also be determined. Further thermal performance indicators are the air volume flow in alternating operation and the balance, which can also be determined with the test bench. The test stand is equipped with an auxiliary fan so that continuously operating ventilation units can also be measured with the direct measuring method.
We develop and manufacture Venturi tubes and nozzles as individual components or as complete VMF® systems. The VenturiMasterFlow® measuring system, VMF® for short, is used for the precise measurement of air or gas volume and mass flows 100,000 m³/h
The flow measurement by means of a Venturi tube or Venturi nozzle is characterized by high measuring accuracies up to 0.5% MW and a fast response time < 10 ms. A further benefit is the high long-term stability of the measuring element.
We offer you a comprehensive service portfolio around your measurement technology: whether we support you in the complete project or only in sub-areas, is entirely up to you. Starting with the project planning and construction, over the commissioning and support with the CE certification up to the maintenance of your test stand - our offer extends.
