Pressure tests on small components at 600 bar water pressure
Pressure chamber

In the specially developed pressure chamber of the LZH, samples can be put under a water pressure of 600 bar.


Through the 20 mm and 80 mm large viewing windows of the pressure chamber, the samples can be irradiated with laser radiation. It is also possible to watch the sample being put under pressure and to record full HD videos with more than 12,000 images per second.

  • Pressure range: 0 bar to 600 bar
  • Salt content of the water: <=40 PSU

Possible dimensions of the sample: 5 cm x 5 cm x 5 cm (large samples on request).
