Mahle Test Systems, a major supplier of end-of-line and diagnostic engineering services to the global automotive industry, today announced industry-wide availability of its TestLogiq Mobile Evaporative System Dry Leak Tester for automotive and component fuel systems. “As government regulations for on-board diagnostics evolve, testing tolerances on many emissions systems are becoming more stringent,” said Ben Shirey, Director for Mahle Test Systems. “This tester is engineered to meet current Environmental Protection Agency regulations that require an audit detection of minute leaks in the fuel system, which would be time prohibitive using standard on-board diagnostic routines.” According to the company, the portable Evaporative System Dry Leak Tester conducts a vacuum-based test that is administered on a fuel system through the vehicle’s fuel-tank filler neck. The test, which does not require disassembly of the vehicle, detects leaks as small as 0.010 inches. The test can be conducted without using vehicle power and within a cycle time suitable for in-line testing on a production assembly line. Mahle Test Systems, a division of Mahle Powertrain, LLC offers end-of-line and diagnostic engineering services and systems that are utilized today worldwide in many fields for the development of new vehicle models, in manufacturing, in service products by authorized dealers and in diagnostic test systems for the aftermarket. The company employs more than 40,000 employees in 110 production plants and seven research and development centers. In 2006, they generated sales in excess of EUR 4.3 billion (USD 5.8 billion).
