The flow meter suitable for exhaust fumes from diesel, gasoline and alternative fuel powered engines Oberursel (Taunus), 5 June 2013 with the pitot tube flow meter PTFM-1000 V2 HORIBA, presented as a specialist for the measurement of exhaust gas, the second generation of an exact measurement for volume of exhaust gas of internal combustion engines. The device is issued 15 automotive testing Expo Europe 2013 in Stuttgart from 4 to 6 June. The proven pitot tube principle the PTFM-1000 V2 uses a high frequency and a sampling frequency of 1 kHz for the precise measurement of highly pulsating exhaust flow. This high rate of detection ensures that all types are measured by fluctuations or deviant behavior in the motor. The unique design of the PTFM-1000 V2 ensures that also return currents can be measured with the same accuracy. In this way, the PTFM-1000 V2 with diesel and petrol engines as well as engines that run on ethanol, propane or butane, is compatible. Through the existing interface can PTFM-1000 V2 with a laptop to communicate it or be integrated into an existing exhaust gas measurement system, without any necessary additional steps in the test process.
The device provides a real-time display of the exhaust gas volume in relation to the accuracy requirements of the ISO policy 16183,”explains Gary O’Brien, HORIBA UK Ltd. es product development covers a wide range of applications, is easy to install and thus an efficient solution for measuring the volume of exhaust gas by both diesel and gasoline engines.” One of the many advantages of the PTFM-1000 V2 is the automatic detection of the attached flow adapter without additional intervention of the user. It also offers automatic zero and rinsing sequences, a non-extractive method of measurement (the exhaust flow is unaffected) and several data output options. To best meet the specified engine parameters and to achieve maximum accuracy is a selection of flow adaptors of various diameters for flows from 2 to 65 m3/min, available. Optionally can be equipped of PTFM-1000 V2 connections and seals for high temperatures (up to 900 C), an additional sensor for the measurement of exhaust gas pressure and an integrated test point.
