At ICAT, Engine Test Facility is capable of performing Certification as well as Developmental trials for Medium & Heavy Duty Vehicles with GVW above 3.5ton.
The domain of testing with respect to the application of engine includes- Automotive (BSIII & BSIV), CEV’s, Tractors, Power Tillers and Gensets as per National & International Standards.
Other than standard tests, ETC also delivers tests custom-tailored to the customer’s requirements like FTP and durability trials.
ICAT has been approved by VCA for witness testing to:
EEC Directives: 70/220/EEC up to & including as amended by 2003/76/EC, Type IV,V,VI & OBD, 80/1268/EEC, 97/24/EC as last amended by 2006/120/EC, 88/77/EEC amended by 91/542/EEC
As of now, we are having 10 numbers of Transient Test Beds and 02 number of Eddy Current Dynamometers with following specifications:-
Used for cold start development of engines of Genset, Passenger cars, SUV, Tractor & components testing etc. Temp range is -28 to 60 DegC. Internal dimension in mm is (5800 X 2150 X 2300)
Micro soot sensor works on photo-acoustic principle & is useful for measuring soot emissions which is an important indicator of combustion quality. MSS can detect soot in the range of 0.001– 50 mg/m³ without dilution; 0.001 – 1000 mg/m³ with dilution DR=20. It is one of the essential development tool required for emission calibration of BS VI Diesel engines.
Used for simulating real-life AC compressor load on the engine. This rig will be useful while executing accelerated durability cycles in Engine Dyno and will also aid in evaluating impact of AC load on engine's BSFC and Emissions.
Used for measuring oil separation efficiency in blow-by gases of engine.
Used for simulating real electrical load so that alternator put equivalent mechanical demand on the engine.
Special rig to check cylinder leakage without opening cylinder head.
Used for measuring real time opacity with data logging. Can be used at both engine and vehicle level.
Can be used to measure tangential force of rings.
