Here’s a list of pressure tests done on an Engine for ensuring its optimal performance
Have you ever thought of why your waterman fuel pump is so effective? Well, because it’s carefully designed and intensively tested to feed fuel into the engine at specific pressures to gain the required performance. Similarly, the engine of your car goes through numerous tests to ensure its performance delivery is top-notch.
Today, automobile companies are spending millions of dollars on research and development for off-highway vehicle engines. And a significant portion of the R&D goes into developing specialised engine tests to ensure that the engine installed in the functions of the vehicle appropriately.
If you’re aware of how technical it is, the engine tests include all sorts of complexities, engineered systems designed to measure, control and record all the relevant parameters during different engine manufacturing stages.
Numerous original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are using the engine tests for evaluating and analysing certain variables of the engine in preset conditions and then verify it’s accuracy prior to delivering it to the customer.
All the governments are increasingly getting strict with the regulations and are demanding for higher quality in specific applications. Therefore, many engine tests that stand today contain pressure sensors.
The temperature of the engine is one key factor that’s decisive in the prolonging life of engine components. The coolant system in the engine is responsible for the distribution of coolant during the test.
This test allows us to detect any defects in piston rings, bores and valves during the testing phase.
There’s always an adequate oil pressure required in an engine to ensure that all moving parts are properly lubricated to prevent the failure of any component. Because if it happens, the engine may get seized.
Fuel Line Pressure
Fuel delivery is one of the most critical processes in an engine. Internal combustion (IC) engines use different types of fuels to make them run. Therefore, it’s essential to monitor the fuel line pressure. It further helps in the calculations for efficiency and control of fuel delivery.
Manifold Vacuum Pressure
This test assists in measuring the amount of restriction that must be applied to the airflow through the engine. Getting accurate measurements enables the manufacturers to note down the unused power capacity in the engine.
Over time it’s expected to note a decay in the overall pressure of the system. This whole system leak-rate test is conducted to ensure there are no missing O-rings, gaskets or any other valve issues to cause such leaks.
There exist numerous other tests that include testing of differential pressure sensors, vacuum sensors, gauge sensors, or electric output. We at QuickBitz can assist you with multiple checks of your car and ensure it runs at its best.
