Calsim hot gas test center
For thermal testing of components or complete exhaust systems, ATESTEO division Calsim offers seven fully automated hot gas test benches. The modular design of these component test benches is suitable for conducting endurance tests and for high complex test requirements. For testing exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) coolers, controlled cooling circuits are installed. In addition, a Clausius-Rankine-cycle for testing waste heat recovery (WHR) components may be added. The working fluids may be demineralised water, ethanol, or special fluids; for example, cyclopentane or acetone. All test benches are designed such that the performance range of a passenger car to that of a commercial (utility) vehicle is covered; that is, up to 800 kW heating capacity, 1,300°C hot gas temperature, 4,000 kg/h hot gas mass flow, and 5 bar(rel) hot gas pressure.
