Compact exhaust emission testing only requires small gas samples

June 22, 2017 // By Julien Happich
The AVL AMA SL exhaust emission test system only requires minimal flow rates to achieve high-precision measuring results, and is said to be significantly more energy-efficient (drawing 40% less energy) and maintenance-friendly than conventional systems.

Featuring a large and dynamic measuring range, the AVL AMA SL analyzes up to eight different exhaust gas components, and optionally determines the exhaust return rate (EGR). Thanks to a consistent reduction and minimization of components, the exhaust emission measurement system has a very small footprint with a depth of 30 cm, opening up new possibilities in test centre design. At the same time, the AVL AMA SL delivers absolutely precise measuring results with sampling amounts up to 90% lower, which makes it suitable for smaller engines such as hybrid vehicles or motorcycles. Fuel agnostic the instrument allows for the development and certification of internal combustion engines in accordance with all of the globally applied exhaust emission legislations.

Owing to extra-low voltage supply, the system is also safely accessible during operation. This allows the staff to service an analyzer, for example, while the other analyzers continue to complete their test order.
