ETC’s Altitude Simulation System is a uniquely designed environmental simulation system that is engineered to accurately simulate high altitude conditions at the induction air and exhaust side of the engine being tested. The Altitude Simulation System is comprised of a Combustion Air Unit which provides air at precisely controlled environmental conditions and a Pressure Control Unit controls the pressure drop of the engine intake air through the use of a valve and vacuum blower system. These reduced pressure conditions are also created for the engine exhaust creating a more cost-effective solution to your high altitude simulation test needs.
ETC’s Altitude Simulation System is considerably more cost-effective than high altitude simulation test chambers, which have gained the attention of the racing industries, heavy duty diesel and many automotive original equipment manufacturers and tier suppliers. New vehicle design and performance verification requires extensive testing where performance verification is done under extreme environmental conditions with stringent accuracy and repeatability requirements. ETC’s Altitude Simulation System can satisfy these requirements as well as the requirements of the Environmental Protection Agency’s NTE emissions envelope.
