Compressive Strength and Explosion Testing

Compressive Strength and Burst Test Laboratory

Relative pressure, absolute pressure, negative pressure, differential pressure and atmospheric pressure, which are referenced in EUROLAB Laboratory test environment, are realized with pressure measurements for different application areas and tests of packaging, material and production products are carried out at maximum sensitivity and minimum tolerance ranges.

Tests are performed to measure the burst strength of materials exposed to an increased hydrostatic pressure. This pressure is applied to the circular region of the sample by means of an elastic diaphragm. The sample is held firmly by a pneumatic clamping device at the edge of this circular region. When applied to pressure, the sample deforms with the diaphragm. Burst strength corresponds to the maximum pressure of the sample supported before failure. In the same direction, as in the round burst method for sandblasting, which is a multi-directional tensile test, this measurement is independent of the cutting direction of the sample (machine or cross), since the failure occurs naturally in the least resistance direction.

Rubber diaphragms of specified thickness and shore hardness shall have a protrusion against the pressure range within the tolerance of the standards for the type of material tested

Absolute pressure, pneumatic pressure, hydraulic pressure and negative pressure applications and EUROLAB Laboratory Pressure and Vacuum tests are serving you.

In the strength test, the pressure vessel; the type of container, national or international standards, the device manufacturer's data and national regulations, taking into account a pressure that is determined to create permanent deformation of the device is checked. In this way, it is determined whether the pressure vessel loses its compressive strength over time and thus can be operated safely.

Only worn pressure vessels are not subjected to hydrostatic testing. In fact, every newly produced pressure vessel is subjected to hydrostatic testing before being released to check whether it meets the required safety standards. These devices are then re-tested at regular intervals throughout their service life.
