Poppe + Potthoff Maschinenbau GmbH develops and manufactures installations for operation and endurance testing of components in the automotive and shipbuilding sector as well as other industries. The precise and powerful special machines that this specialist for high pressure and testing technology produces, are used in research, development and production processes. This includes installations for bursting pressure and leak tests, pressure cycling testing, autofrettage as well as installations for testing the function of components. Our company, based in Nordhausen (Germany), is a member of the Poppe + Potthoff Group. As a developer of systems, we put our customers' requirements centre stage. Our focus is on technologically complex installation systems of testing and high pressure engineering. As a developer of systems, we offer everything from a single source; from concept development through to design and production (mechanical + electric) all the way to software development.

Poppe + Potthoff Maschinenbau GmbH supplies compressor units and pressure control systems of up to 400 bar for various gases. We offer ready-to-connect units to increase the existing pressure for pneumatic and hydraulic applications. In this way, the performance of existing systems can be increased flexibly and efficiently. Our compressor units are used wherever the existing system pressure is insufficient to implement specific applications. Of course, our systems are UL or CE compliant as required. In addition, we offer you service and support directly on-site.

With the dual chamber PPM leak test stand, Poppe + Potthoff Maschinenbau offers a powerful system for testing sensors in medical device industry. The test stand can be implemented in R&D processes, but also during production as an end of line test. With pressures of up to 50 bars this equipment offers a large spectrum of testing opportunities in the medical area. Some Global Test Standards include: ISO 14644 ASTM G122-96 ASTM D6361 SAE AMS 0302 The PPM leak test stand is able to be programed to the customers requirement. The powerful in house built software enables exact design of pressure curves, such as holding times and exact pressure increase over time. It is an ideal solution for any sorts of plastic components. This exemplarily displayed test bench can utilize air or nitrogen as a test medium. Please get in touch about any other test mediums. In addition the PPM test benches can perform tests of multiple test units at a time.

The system is a self-sufficient unit and is made of a solid welded frame, contains media preparation, a hydraulic unit, and electrical engineering. The pressure test bench has a secure test chamber for burst pressure and hydrostatic pressure tests and, optionally, a climatic chamber for pressure tests with environmental simulation. Depending on the option selected, pressure change tests up to 2,000 bar and 10 Hz can be generated. With the test circuit for hydrostatic and burst pressure tests, pressure ramps up to 3,000 bar can be generated. It is operated on a support arm PC. For pressure tests according to EG79 / EU406 – Section 4.2 Pressure booster for additional supply Displacement volume max. 15cm³ Frequency up to 10Hz Pressure Load Changes as sine & trapezoidal curve (depending on the expansion volume) Impulse intensifier for small volumes up to 2,000bar Safety test chamber with automatic door Media treatment with dirt and clean tank
