Test facilities

Our pump packages are tested on an ultra-modern pump test facility. Furthermore product authorizations and inspections by TÜV, VdS, FM etc. are possible.

Our test stand can handle capacities up to 2500 m³/h with permissible operating pressures of up to 20 bar.

All measuring systems and test facilities of our test stand are calibrated. Current calibration protocols are available. All measurement data gained during the test runs will be transferred to a PC supported measuring desk.

The following electric motor and diesel engine driven pump styles can be tested

  • horizontal pump units for dry-well installation for supply and discharge service
  • vertical turbine pumps up to an installation depth of 10 m
  • submersible motor pumps
  • packaged pump houses

each with the components to be actually supplied, i.e. motor, controller and accessories. A power supply up to 800 kW and a frequency of 50 or 60 Hz is available..

For series testing of the units according to VdS-CEA or NFPA/FM there are various test stands available, each tuned to the individual unit performance and drive type.Continuous running tests up to four hours are possible.

Acceptance tests can be witnessed and confirmed by customers or appointed third parties (national and international control commissions), if desired.

Facilities for the following tests are available:

  • Pump Capacity
  • Pump Discharge Head
  • NPSH Acceptance Test
  • Pump Power Requirement
  • Vibration Measurements and Analysis
  • Exhaust Gas Measurements and Analysis
  • Sound Ranging
  • Hydraulic Pressure Tests
  • Test of Coating

Factory Acceptance Test Reports according to DIN EN 10.204/3.1 B are always part of each pump unit.
