In Germany, the foundation stone was laid for what VULKAN is today: a leading and globally operating. The company VULKAN in Herne is not only the headquarters of the VULKAN group, but also a production site for the three divisions Couplings, Drive Tech and Lokring.
The Lokring Division exists since 1979 at the Herne location and has grown into a global success story. Germany is not only a production site for LOKRINGs for hermetically sealed tube connections but also the headquarters for the 16 locations and four other production facilities in China, USA, Brazil and USA. Herne has always been the site for the research and development department of the company with a worldwide unique test laboratory.
Because of that VULKAN Lokring is the only one in the industry with the full range of testing equipment for testing the tube connections in accordance with European standard EN 16084. This is an important basis for the in-house product development, because here VULKAN Lokring may prove the tightness of tube connections in refrigeration and air conditioning field.
In addition, vacuum tests, pressure-temperature alternating tests, oscillation tests, dynamic and static pressure tests and frost tests can be carried out in the test laboratory.
