Sealed Housing for Evaporative Determination (SHED)
SHED test chambers are used to measure the hydrocarbon emissions of cars, motor bikes and car components.
The legislators (EU, EPA, CARB, NSCN) stipulate the permissible emission limits and the verification procedure. The vehicle manufacturer must prove that the legal limits are complied with for the vehicle to be approved. Low background emissions are an important requirement for conclusive test results. In accordance with the EPA/CARB/EN standards, the limit may not exceed a value of 0.05 g. For our drive-in standard SHED, we guarantee background emissions of better than 0.007 g, measured after 4 hours in accordance with EPA sec. 86.117/96a.
