ANALYSIS IN DETAIL
OUR ENGINE AND COMPONENT TESTING RIGS PUT EVERY ELEMENT OF YOUR POWERPLANT TO THE TEST.
Many of our specialist test rigs have been developed in-house and can be adapted exactly to your requirements for analysis of fuel systems, radiator core performance, pneumatic and steel valve spring behaviour or clutch and launch systems.
Our cam rig for air and valve spring measurement can run up to 22,000rpm engine speed with an 110Kw electric motor. A 70-channel measurement system, six-channel laser system and high-speed camera provide full valve motion analysis.
The adjustable radiator wind tunnel runs at realistic air speeds up to a maximum of 12m/s for lifelike analysis of radiator core performance.
A port development flow bench - a very rare example - provides low pressure exhaust measurement and valve shape optimisation, complete with Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) analysis.
A unique fuel system testing facility incorporates the most comprehensive analyses available, including a fuel pump test rig, fuel rail calibration rig and single injector test and development rig.
Heat rejection and friction analysis is a particular speciality while the latest technology is utilised to provide incredibly detailed data on individual components.
High-speed cameras and lasers deliver incredible accuracy, as does the military-grade thermal camera on our 10,000rpm clutch development rig, which requires a specific permit from the authorities.
Additionally, we offer Horiba exhaust gas analysers, Malvern laser system for fuel spray characterisation, fast flame ionisation detection and rapid in-cylinder sampling.
