Aerospace manufacturers ask a lot of their equipment. Due to a variety of factors, including the rigors of normal usage and governmental regulations, aerospace companies have a long checklist of requirements for critical components. Learning the hard way that a certain component can't sustain certain working conditions can literally be a life-or-death matter. Use Maxbar's pressure testing services, such as relief valve testing, to verify that your components are up to the challenge.

About Aerospace Pressure Testing Services

Components used in aerospace applications must endure a range of conditions. In the case of turbines or propulsion systems, components must cope with extremely high temperatures and varying pressures. Other components such as landing gear must be able to withstand tens or hundreds of thousands of pounds of pressure, and the impact of landing, repeatedly without failing.

To replicate these and other conditions, Maxbar offers a range of pressure testing services.

  • Proof testing: We can subject your component or equipment to pressure slightly above its intended range.
  • Cyclic testing: Subject your equipment, especially components such as landing gear, to repeated pressure loads.
  • Burst testing: What is the point at which your equipment just can't take anymore? Our burst testing services can provide the answer.

Components frequently don't experience one form of stress in isolation, but in parallel with other forms of pressure. To test these components, we offer combined pressure testing services to test several forms of pressure (including temperature and bending) simultaneously to see how your equipment performs.

Aerospace Pressure Testing Services

Due to the unique nature of most aerospace equipment, it is impossible to standardize pressure testing. To provide the customized pressure testing services aerospace companies require, Maxbar has developed its pressure testing facility with outstanding flexibility in mind. We can provide pressure testing at the following levels:

  • Air testing up to 6,000 PSI
  • Helium or nitrogen testing up to 30,000 PSI
  • Liquid testing up to 200,000 PSI

For tests that are especially out of the ordinary, Maxbar will design and produce specialized fixtures to produce the forms of pressure needed for your exact specifications.

Most companies simply don't have the specialized equipment or expertise to properly perform pressure testing. Other companies do have access to pressure testing facilities, but are looking to avoid the expense involved. Maxbar is ready to serve you, we have the facilities and experienced personnel to provide world-class pressure testing services at a price that can fit in your project budget.
