Combustion engine test laboratories and centres
Proventia Test Solutions offers one-of-a-kind combustion engine test laboratories designed in a compact transportable shape and structure. Our modular test cells are optimised and equipped in accordance with customer needs and preferences. Proventia's test laboratories and centres integrate with existing facility arrangements and numerous engine test bench configurations. Proventia's modular Test Solutions are extremely transportable, quick to deploy and dynamically managed in the optimal way.
Modular, dynamic combustion engine test cells
Proventia Test Solutions offer different laboratory designs and layouts to meet all kinds of combustion engine test bench requirements and facility arrangements. Each test cell is divided into a few large modules that are easy to transport and assemble. Automation is divided into infrastructural and test stand control. The master automation system uses Proventia building automation systems to operate all the infrastructural components, such as mains power, an integral specimen cooling system, ventilation and air conditioning. The BAS also controls the safety systems (doors, emergency switches, fire suppression system, gas and fluid detectors) and alerts the master automation system when required.
As a free system integrator, Proventia works directly with key component suppliers and delivers unique combinations of dynamometers, inverters, test equipment and automation systems. Proventia involves key component suppliers, with their skills and expertise, in the customer discussion to ensure the best possible engine test bench solution is found.
Proventia's modular engine test laboratories integrate with the existing facility arrangement and available supplies (fuels, gases, air, cooling, liquid conditioning, water etc.), measurement capabilities, alarm network etc. The self-sufficiency level and interface points are devised accordingly. A solid foundation, fuel line and the mains power from the principal facility are the minimum requirements for the modular combustion engine test cell. Proventia also offers optional modular supportive facility units which serve several test laboratories.
Turnkey delivered engine test laboratories
As a turnkey supplier, Proventia designs and delivers complete CE marked combustion engine test laboratories that meet the EU Machine Directive, include comprehensive safety features, and comply with health and safety regulations. Every detail and piece of equipment is designed, installed and tested at the factory to ensure that onsite test cell assembly is quick and easy. Modules can be transported anywhere in the world. Within a few days, the modular engine test laboratory is ready for commissioning. Operators are trained, and acceptance tests are conducted. A full documentation set, including user and maintenance instructions, is released, and the combustion engine test laboratory is ready for the official handover to the customer.
Why a modular engine test laboratory?
