New possibilities with test facility

Test facility

In Kamstrup a new test facility have opened that can be used to run field tests and to enhance the user experience of new products. Testing is necessary if you want to deliver high quality products and innovative solutions. It ensure that the development process is challenged and that ideas for improvements arise in order to optimize previous solutions. Therefore, a new test field has been built on Kamstrup to be used as a playground for future course participants and to help developing new innovative solutions. The test facility creates a realistic environment for technology to be tested. The new test facility includes an expanded track with a main pipe connected to multiple connection pipes, making it possible to test how our acoustic leak detection sensors react to leakages in different scenarios. Now it is possible to make even more precise and efficient tests of our new solution.
