Fuel Systems Laboratory

The complete fuel systems laboratory has the necessary equipment to test fuel systems in order to evaluate mechanical strength, functional performance, legal requirements and a complete validation of the system.

Fuel Filling Lab
The fuel lab has two fuel filling stations designed to represent an ordinary gas service station with standard service station components. They may use different fuels (Gasoline, E85 and Diesel), fuel temperature, fill nozzles or fuel flows.
Climate Chamber
The walk-in explosion-proof chamber is designed for fuel tank temperature cycling, fuel tank roll-over, hydraulic pressure tests and fuel filling tests. Utilizing only mechanical refrigeration and electrical heating, the chamber offers wide ranges of high and low temperatures as well as controlled humidity.
Fuel Slosh Durability
The slosh test facility may house up to three tank assemblies simultaneously and test gasoline, E85 and diesel fuels.
Fuel Tank Pressure/Vacuum
This test equipment performs thousands of pressure and vacuum cycle to ascertain the typical fuel tank durability.
Fuel Pump Durability
Two test tanks rigs may house eight modules at the same time for fuel pump durability testing. Fuel type (like gasoline, E85 or diesel), temperature and fuel pressure are the variables that can be altered in the tests.
Other Available Services
