The Tenneco technical center in Yokohama, Japan, which supports the development of the company’s clean air and ride performance products, has been expanded.

“I am pleased to officially open our expanded research and development center to serve our Japan-based customers with state-of-the-art engineering capabilities,” said Patrick Guo, Tenneco senior vice president and general manager, Asia-Pacific.

“Our engineering know-how, global regulatory expertise and capabilities in systems integration are driving Tenneco’s success in serving our customers with innovative, cost-effective solutions.”

Housed inside the facility are two engine dynos used in the testing of emissions control systems for both diesel and gasoline engines. Additional emission control testing capabilities include an anechoic chamber for acoustic testing; a cold flow bench for backpressure verification; thermal durability test facilities; hot vibration testing equipment; system design and analysis, modeling, acoustic analysis and performance validation tools.

Tenneco’s technical center also offers testing capabilities for vehicle suspension products including predictive analysis, performance evaluation and acoustic testing. To support development of complete ride performance systems, there are two specially-designed mobile ride tuning vans to create custom solutions for customers.
