Veritas, a supplier of fluid systems, molding parts and thermo systems, has purchased a Moog Electric Simulation Table with tilt. This innovative test system (patent pending) is specially designed for testing the behavior of fluid in automotive fuel and fluid tank systems, a test application that requires large angular motions.
Veritas ordered the system to perform tests on automotive SCR (selective catalytic reduction) fluid tanks that are used to inject liquid-reducing agents in catalytic converters for the reduction of harmful emissions. The test system has been successfully installed and Veritas is currently performing the first series of tests.
The Electric Simulation Table with Tilt is designed to perform dynamic liquid sloshing tests, and has the ability to simulate real-world road conditions. The behavior of the liquid and components of the tank system can be tested and evaluated in a confidential laboratory setting, as opposed to a test track, and the test results will enable Veritas to make the right choices when developing new fluid tanks.
The company is said to have chosen the Moog system because it is specially designed for this application, uses plug and play electric actuation technology, and is easy to use and maintain.
