Testing powertrains to move the future
KST has the measurement and analysis system technology required to adapt its test benches to the individual requirements of the synthetic fuels. This enables us to demonstrate the effects and influences on engine hardware and software with and without calibration modifications. Our range of services include testing engine durability, components and fuel-carrying systems.
KST carries out operating fluid tests according to CEC standards and OEM specifications (in-house tests). KST is certified according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 1702:2005 .KST supports the development and certification of new operating fluids with, for example, oil supply analyses (tilt-rig test bench). In this regard, KST draws on its many years’ experience in testing fuels and lubricants.
Our premises holds a fuel farm with the capacity for 20 different fuels. In addition to standard fuels and biofuels (up to E100 or B100) or propane, natural gas and hydrogen, special fuels stored in separate containment units (IBC) can easily be directed to the individual test benches in use.
Synthetic fuels/e-fuels represent a vast potential for the decarbonisation provided they are synthesized in a CO2-neutral manner and can be used in existing fleets, for example by adding them to fossil fuels.
Test benches for individual powertrain components allow analysis of the components outside the engine or vehicle assembly.
The new Euro 7 standard is currently being prepared. The legislation provides for further reduction of emissions and for new pollutants and gases to be added.
