Synthetic oil, coolant, fuels, Skydrol, air, water... modern machines use a variety of fluids, and their capacity to handle these substances in different environments needs to be checked rigorously.
In the implementation of these hydraulic tests, we use or develop test benches capable of operating with most fluids encountered in the automotive, railway, aeronautical and defence industries (including synthetic or mineral oil, brake fluid, coolant, fuel, skydrol, air, water).
Refrigeration units and electric boilers cover a temperature range from -40°C to +300°C for fluids.
Additional heating means allow us temperatures up to 500°C or even 1000°C with the gas burner.
Among the various hydraulic constraints intended to evaluate the behaviour of an equipment, there are among others:
Hydraulic stress cycles allow fatigue tests to be carried out in relation to the fluid used.
Our hydraulic facilities allow us to conduct mechanical, climate, physical and chemical tests which meet the most exacting functional requirements.
Hydraulic stresses can therefore be added to the equipment qualification program.
