Methods and Equipment

Our services do not only consist of the exact fulfilment of analytical and physical measurement tasks, but also in the conversion of a customer’s problem to a testing program and in the interpretation of the results.

Beside these techniques the Analytik Service Obernburg offers additional methods of environmental analyses of exhaust-gas, waste-water and sludge as well as noise.

In the context of approval tests for automotive engineering we carry out special tests and environmental simulations. This includes emission measurements (fogging, formaldehyde, odour tests, TOC, VOC/Fog, …), climate tests (moist and heat storage, temperature shock, temperature cycling test, sun simulation, …), extensive tests for suitability (chemical resistance, corrosion tests, salt spray test, dust, scratch and abrasion resistance, ball drop test, burning behaviour, …) and many other analyses. Here you can find an extensive list of our offered test range.
