PTB test bench

What is it about?

The PTB test bench measures the backpressure (BP) of exhaust and intake silencers for 2- and 4-wheeler, like automobile, truck, off-road, motorcycle, ATV and UTV.

The backpressure versus massflow gives information about the flow resistance inside the silencer, which is related to the engine performance. Stationary cold flow as well as dynamic hot-flow back pressure can be evaluated. Leakage flow rates may be measured with the Leak test unit (LTB) as well.

How does the PTB work?

Just easy like that: place the silencer on the bench, connect the hose with adapter to the silencer and start the measurement guided by the PTB user GUI software: “everything is done in few minutes – from set-up to display of the result”.
The PTB can be used in the Design Process of silencers, as well as for the Quality Control in the Production.
