No Matter How Long It Takes, We Perform Every Test

Regardless of whether a test lasts 2.117 seconds or 10.00 hours – our experts prepare and carry out every single one with the same meticulousness.

Impact Test
IMA Dresden’s experts prepare and carry out every single one with the same meticulousness

The shortest one is our impact test: From a height up to 22 meters, we drop a maximum weight of 50 kilograms onto a sample. It takes just 2.117 seconds. Compared with our longest-running test, this is just a blink of the eye. In comparison, our long-term test on a GRP liner pipe takes much more time. In our test laboratory, we put a weight on a pipe cutout to simulate the weight of the soil layer that will later lie above it in real use – for about 10,000 hours; That are almost 417 days. Then, we can predict the load over the period of 50 years.
