Mini Dilution Tunnel (partial flow dilution, total sampling) AVL Austria Model - SPC472 (2 Nos.
This tunnel is suitable to measure particulates from diesel engine, as per national and international standards, such as EEC 91/542, ISO 8178 and ECE R-49

Engine intake air conditioning unit
This mobile unit supplies air at reference atmospheric conditions (temperature, pressure. and humidity) to the engine intake as per regulations, such as CMVR, EEC 91 / 542, ECE R 49 and ISO 8178.

Engine test automation system
All the equipments in engine test cell such as dynamometer, dynamic fuel consumption meter, fuel and coolant conditioning unit, smoke meter, combustion air handling unit, raw exhaust gas analysis system and particulate measurement unit have been interfaced with the HOST computer. With automation system, it is possible to conduct the power, smoke (steady & transient) and emission measurement tests (steady state) in AUTO mode with the final result calculation and report generation.
