Test and Measurement Competency

In the field, exhaust systems are subject to extremely high loads. At the same time they are expected to run for years without failures and at low cost. In order to secure the lifetime, reliability and quality of exhaust systems, long-term durability tests used to be performed. Nowadays, this is no longer possible due to the prescribed timeframe and costs. Today, exhaust systems are validated during complex test runs on test rigs instead.


Tenneco possesses a variety of modern test equipment from corrosion test rigs to complex road load simulators. On this equipment, exhaust systems are tested up to their load limits to ensure their durability. 


These test procedures are continuously being improved and adapted to customer requirements.
