HORIBA adds the new HyFQ-2000 fuel flow measurement series
- New HyFQ-2000 series enables measurement of hydrogen or compressed natural gas (CNG)
- Measuring system features high precision and a wide range of test applications for light and heavy duty
HORIBA, a leading manufacturer and innovator of measuring instruments and systems, today announced the addition of the new HyFQ-2000 series to its fuel consumption measurement portfolio, which now includes hydrogen or compressed natural gas (CNG) measurement capabilities. This further expands the company's electrification portfolio in the Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV) sector.
With the Coriolis measurement technology used in the new series, the flow of hydrogen or optionally CNG can be measured in real time with excellent accuracy for both internal combustion engines and fuel cell vehicles up to 500 kW, even whilst subject to highly dynamic test cycles. Its various low and high-pressure configurations enable a wide variety of different testing applications to be performed including vehicle certification, engine mapping and performance testing as well as climatic and emission evaluations.
"With our highly precise and reliable fuel consumption measuring devices of the FQ series, we have already been able to establish ourselves as a trusted partner in the mobility market – as far as traditional internal combustion engines are concerned", emphasizes Alexander Pätz, Sales Engineer Fuel Cell Test Stations at HORIBA FuelCon and adds: “With the new HyFQ-2000 series, we can now also offer hydrogen consumption measurements for new and future driving concepts. For this purpose, the HyFQ series can be integrated into already existing test stands, thus enabling the re-use of existing test infrastructure and thus offering our customers not only a reliable and accurate solution, but also a cost-efficient upgrade at the same time.”
Headquartered in Kyoto, Japan, the HORIBA Group is a world-leading manufacturer of measuring instruments and systems for automotive testing, process and environmental engineering, medical diagnostics and semiconductor manufacturing. HORIBA also offers a wide range of molecular and elementary analytical instrumentation for research, quality control and laboratory analysis.
