High Pressure Test System for Brake Hoses
Test and Process
The system described here serves pneumatic high-pressure testing of clutch hoses. Apart from manual loading and removal of the parts, the system runs automatically.
There is a total of ten hose holders that are operated alternately: the current test runs in five stations positioned above one another; at the other five stations the operator can change parts. All hose holders on the right-hand side of the system are located on a sliding unit that can be moved manually to adjust the respective hose length.
Test criterion is the pressure loss in the hose during the pre-set time period.
The hoses in the test are covered with a protective disc. On completion, these move across the newly loaded stations and therefore release the test hoses for removal. In the case of non-conforming parts, the auxiliary attachments remain closed, so that the operator needs to confirm to open them. The part can be removed manually and placed in a shaft for nonconforming parts.
Hose diameter 12 – 14 mm
Hose length 1500 – 2500 mm
