Lifetime Test Bench Material Research Plastic Pipes

The test bench investigates the aging of plastic pipes under the influence of petroleum products. Due to the test media, the test chamber is flooded with an inert gas to meet the high requirements regarding ATEX. A test duration and recording of the measured values of up to several months is possible. The test stand can be monitored remotely, allowing early detection of test failure and shutdown of the test circuit.
