The PLC-controlled hot gas generator F1 produces hot gas for technical test purposes. In particular, the thermal testing of components in the vehicle exhaust system can be conducted in a time- and energy-saving way. The modular set-up enables conducting not only endurance and durability tests, but also turbocharger tests.
Working principle of the hot gas generator
Hot gas is generated by burning a fuel-air mixture. Natural gas, propane, diesel, or heating oil EL may be used as the fuel. The desired hot gas temperature is controlled by adjusting the burner power and mixing in cold air.
