Weiss Gallenkamp altitude-simulation chambers are used to test for exhaust emissions, fuel consumption and engine performance at different altitudes.

The precise control of simulated environmental conditions contributes to accurate test results – vital in the testing of emissions to ensure they comply with the Euro 6 regulation.

One such example of an installation carried out is at Volkswagen in Germany.

A number of testing facilities were installed at Volkswagon’s test centre in Wolfsburg, built during 2004 and 2006, in the form of a test plant named Hall 68, where nearly all climatic and environmental conditions occurring in different parts of the world can be simulated.

In addition to six temperature or climatic-test chambers for complete vehicles, it also includes a test chamber for engines.

Part of the vehicle-test chambers is equipped with dynamometers and can simulate altitude conditions.

Technical specifications: volume 570m3; working temperature range -40 to 60C; air-conditioning range 5 to 60C; range of relative humidity 10 to 80 per cent with thermal load and 10 to 95 per cent without thermal load; working pressure range 700mbar to atmospheric, 10mbar up to approximately 600kW at 40C/80 per cent.
