Sanitary and Separation Technology

Our tests for sanitary engineering and separation technology | TÜV Rheinland

Certified safety and quality with our sanitary equipment testing

From the kitchen to the bathroom, consumers seek durable and safe sanitary fixtures to ensure a pleasant home. A corresponding test mark certifying the proven quality and safety of a product often serves as a decision-making aid when purchasing.

Our experts carry out testing and certification services for sanitary articles of all kinds. We can perform type testing for washbasin faucets, material testing for kitchen sinks, or safety assessments of shower partition walls. We also examine the effectiveness of drainage products (e.g. roof and floor drains), lifting systems (pumps), filter systems (e.g. for waste water containing mineral oil) and separators within the framework of drainage and separation technology.

When testing your sanitary and separation technology, you can rely on our many years of experience and extensive specialist knowledge. As a testing laboratory recognized by the German Technical and Scientific Association for Gas and Water (DVGW), we have the necessary know-how and accreditation to provide you with optimum support.
