Testing, type approval and certification solutions for vehicles
A thorough evaluation of fuel tanks and components for compliance with established standards and manufacturers’ specific requirements typically includes a number of different tests and assessments. Specific tank and component testing can include testing for durability, pressure, ageing, refueling, and materials testing, as well as driving simulation and permeation measurement. Testing is usually conducted early in the product development process, but can also be applied to post-production samples to verify compliance.
Fuel tank and component testing provides OEMs as well as fuel tank and component suppliers with several benefits:
TÜV SÜD has established a world-class automotive laboratory infrastructure that can evaluate and test almost every type of automotive systems and components, including fuel tanks.
TÜV SÜD provides various services for endurance and application testing:
Fatigue strength (sledge test, pendulum impact, burst pressure)
Resistance-environmental simulation (climatic, temperature and pressure change, pressure-vibration temperature)
Functional testing (static, dynamic)
Security infrastructure for testing with real fuels
