Brake Emissions Testing
Brake Emissions Overview
Brake Emissions are the direct release of particulate matter, and gases from a vehicle friction event. Reducing brake emissions is an integral part of achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goal 11 for Sustainable Cities and Communities.
Measuring the brake emissions under known conditions in a laboratory-like LINK, which is meeting industry standards and replicating the vehicle behavior, is an integral part of developing cleaner and better braking systems. Part of the work to achieve Goal 11 is the combination of newer friction coupled with electric powertrains and the brake emissions laboratory testing that helps the engineer move in that direction.
LINK provides a range of capabilities for testing brake emissions on passenger cars, commercial vehicles, and rail applications. Depending on your testing needs, emissions testing features can be provided to conventional brake dynamometers (performance or NVH), retrofit existing brake dynamometers, and/or dedicated brake emissions testers.
