LINKEO™ System: Elastomeric Insulated Exhaust Flex Decoupler on a 6DOF Validation Test with Internal and External Controlled Heat, RLD Displacements, and Gas Flow Rate 2008-01-0893

Paulstra's Linkeo Exhaust Decoupler was presented previously as an insulated, soft component that allows for better isolation between the engine and the exhaust line, and has the benefits of an insulated decoupler (more efficient catalysts). The industrialization process has included a 6DOF validation test. This test included: 1) 6DOF RLD displacements taken from an OEM proving ground, 2) high heat gas flow (850 deg C at 180 g/s), and 3) regulated environmental external temperature via chamber surrounding test sample. We will review details of this test and other validation testing that has taken place recently.
