KLINGER Dichtungstechnik maintains and operates a state-of-the-art test and development laboratory at the Gumpoldskirchen business location.
In full compliance with internationally recognized and approved standards an average of around 50,000 quality control tests are carried out on an annual basis. We are also responsible for the quarterly quality control of all KLINGERSIL manufacturers.
Understanding that standardization is key to providing safe materials – and as a consequence plant safety – KLINGER Dichtungstechnik is represented in a number of standardization committees, including the European Committee for Standardization (CEN), the EN, the ESA – the European Sealing Association, the German DIN "Normenausschuss für Rohrleitungen und Dampfkesselanlagen" (NARD74) and the Austrian Standards Institute ÖNORM.
Material testing at our laboratory comprises the following fields:
- Thermal and mechanical tests
- Tightness tests
- Chemical tests and material analysis
