Developing and optimising exhaust gas turbochargers requires test benches that enable mass flow, temperature and pressure conditions to be set up as required and precisely reproduced. This is particularly important for recording maps and analysing efficiency. Our turbocharger test benches are a particularly efficient tool for this purpose.

A high-tech hot gas generator enables arbitrary operating points to be positioned within the compressor map and turbine map. The burner power can be adjusted across an extremely wide range, enabling complete production series of exhaust gas turbochargers to be inspected on a single test bench. Special examinations with high pressure, combined with low temperature are also possible. The test bench is regulated and controlled by using PAtools TX.
