Intertek expands emissions testing capability

Intertek, a quality solutions provider, has announced that its Transportation Technologies laboratory based in Milton Keynes in the UK has expanded its on-road vehicle exhaust emissions testing and analysis to now provide manufacturers with a wide variety of compliant test routes to maximize calibration robustness.

Last year the laboratory was swift to respond to changes in European exhaust emissions legislation by being among the first to launch real-world driving analysis of vehicle tailpipe emissions using its new Portable Emissions Measurement System (PEMS).

Intertek has now developed multiple compliant routes including four nominal routes, a hot driver route and another including extensive hill climbing and descents which will enable clients to test the robustness of their vehicle emissions control systems. The expanded Intertek capability also includes route profiling, route planning and driver aids such as driver behaviour monitoring systems to ensure delivery of the highest percentage of valid tests to customers. These tools enable new routes to be developed with far less reliance on road driving, reducing route development time from weeks to days and also driver aids that enable non-expert drivers to follow compliant routes without the need for a co-driver in the vehicle.

"These new more stringent and demanding tests will provide manufacturers with the confidence that their vehicle calibrations are robust enough for a wide spectrum of real-world driving conditions," said Tony Braddon, UK managing director of Intertek Transportation Technologies. "They are designed not only to assist the manufacturers in meeting the requirements of the legislation, but also to ensure that companies can best manage the air quality emissions and CO₂ reduction."
