Whether you are a technician servicing diesel engines, or a manufacturer who needs to provide proof of emission values – determining the smoke count is often part of your job. With the smoke tester testo 338, you are ideally equipped for the determination of the degree of blackening in diesel engines. The easy-to-operate, handy measuring instrument records the soot concentration (mg/m3) and the Filter Smoke Number (FSN) or Bosch number for you.
The smoke tester testo 338 provides the advantage that, as a portable instrument, it can be taken with you to the desired application site. Whether the diesel engines to be tested are in industrial plants, ships, shipyards or mines – with the testo 338, your smoke tester is always close at hand in your toolbox. This allows you to dispense with the complicated installation of stationary measurement systems.
Especially before commissioning or after servicing diesel engines, a measurement of the smoke count is recommended. This allows you to determine whether the injection is correctly adjusted or whether there are interior engine problems. However, for proof of emission values, it is also often necessary to determine the degree of blackening – for example in mining or shipping, in order to fulfil special environmental stipulations or for testing diesel particle filters. The manufacturers of diesel engines must also meet the requirements of their customers, and provide proof of this. With the testo 338, the first mobile smoke tester with direct data analysis, you are ideally equipped for these applications.
