An advanced FTIR analyzer installed at Intertek’s engine test facility in Milton Keynes is enabling engineers to improve the quality of their tests on the gaseous components of engine exhaust emissions.
The system supplied by Gasmet Technologies measures multiple organic and inorganic components simultaneously from a large library of compounds, enabling Intertek’s engineers to quickly and easily change the measured compounds; to change the fuel type or cycle conditions, and to see the impact on the emitted gases. The FTIR gas analyzer is also highly portable so that it can be employed in any of the test cells at Intertek.
Intertek’s engine test facility, which accommodates every type of motor vehicle engine covering all fuel types and including both hybrid and battery powered vehicles, provides its customers with the ability to conduct research on prototype engines and evaluate developments in engine technology.
Most recently the FTIR has been deployed in one of Intertek’s most sophisticated cells, which hosts a complete driveline including an engine, a gearbox and also a rig, which creates a complete ‘virtual’ car.
