Quantum Fuel Systems Develops In-House Testing Facility
On Wednesday, Quantum Fuel Systems announced it has developed an in-house test and validation facility for testing its CNG fuel storage modules intended for over-the-road heavy duty trucks. The test equipment and facility simulates the combined effects of extreme road use to assure the integrity and strength of fuel storage module systems for heavy duty vehicle applications. “The road data that we acquire from test vehicles, and use as part of the input for our validation testing, provides us the confidence that safety and reliability come first in our product offerings,” said Mr. Brian Olson, President and CEO of Quantum.
This process for OEM-level product development necessitates putting a high importance on fundamental performance, safety, and durability testing such as crash testing, static loads, vibration, EMI, thermal, corrosion, and salt spray tests. All Quantum’s products undergo the appropriate level of testing required for the product application to ensure that systems are designed and produced in accordance with their intended vehicle use.
