Micro Dilution Tunnel
The MDLT-ONE is designed to sample particulate emissions using the partial flow dilution method. A small portion of the total exhaust is diluted with HEPA* filtered air to create a constant flow rate through particulate filters to collect Particulate Matter (PM). Compliant to the latest regulations, the new MDLT-ONE is very compact and offers faster response by the use of high precision venturi flow meters and a piezo actuated valve.
*HEPA: High Efficiency Particulate Air
Heated filter system and flow controllers installed in a single rack. Swivel connection of tunnel section to cabinet allows flexible installation.
Flow weighting (EPA-approved technology)
Allows user to collect PM on a single filter over all three phases of FTP by adjusting sampling flow rate over the filter to weight the filter face velocity over the three phase of the FTP based on weighting targets. This EPA-approved technology increases the measurement accuracy for meeting the upcoming CARB LEV III 1`mg/mile emission limit and reduces filter weighing cycles from three to one, eliminating manual checks and calculations.
Automatic filter changer
Increases testing efficiency, allowing a maximum of 28 tests to be run without manual intervention. This feature can be mounted in the main rack to keep equipment footprint small.
Automatic calibration software enhances accuracy and ease of use
The MDLT-ONE series performs automatic calibration by flowing air in-series through two venturi flow meters and correcting any difference to zero in the software. This can be included in an automated sequence within a test template.
Integrated Operating Platform
HORIBA ONE series systems employ a common use interface, “HORIBA ONE PLATFORM” offering future expandability and ease of integration into test automation systems.
