Exhaust tailpipe adapters

For direct and nearly gas tight evacuation of exhaust gas at the tailpipe of the cars on the dynamometer. According to the requirements oft tests and possibilities at the car there are different types and construction.

Please contact us directly so we could discuss your requirements for the fitting adapter.

or

Therefore we need the following information:

  • vehicle model andmotorisation
  • year of manufacture
  • requirements of tests – this primarily relates to temperature and tightness requirements. And also possibilities/requirements of temporary or fix installations at the vehicle.
  • favored flange form

Overview about the adapters and different types

 

We have developed a wide range of adapter overall the many types of vehicles of the manufacturer. For vehicles which we have not developed an adapter by now, we would like to do this for you.
With the necessary information and data for the development process – which is described below – we are pleased to develop an adapter for you.

    Development process

    For developing an adapter we use modern technology like 3D CAD und 3D printing for testing and rapid prototyping.

     

    For the needed vehicle normally we will get provided the CAD data.

    If this is not possible we also can take measurements on the vehicle or we need provided a muffler complete with end pipes.

    We will design and customize  the adapter in 3D CAD.

    For testing the prototype we are able to print the end pipe data with a 3D printer.
    So we can easy check and adjust the fitting and clamping.

    The finished adapter is ready to use and reproducible.

    Construction types

     For the right decide of the needed type of adapter there are following the most important properties:

     

    Adaptertype
    Adapter with mechanics and seal in outer clamping
    ShortCodes
    KAA
    Tightness
    tight
    Usability
    no tool necessary
    thermal stability
    limited, circa 220°C long-term loading

    silencer will be changed and adapter is welded.

    An overview of different adapter types are shown in the gallery top right.

    The costs depends on the types of construction and effort. Above you will find some examples:

    Excaust tailepipe adapter with mechanics and silicon seal

    The ring of silicon as seal is clamped in longitudinal direction. So it can seal up to the end pipe.

    There are two ways to clamp. The apdater is outside and seal up to the from there or it is inside and clamp the inner surface.

    Weldingadapter

    The adapter is welded with the and pipe.
    So it´s complete tight to the environment and not sensitive to high temperature.

    Exhaust Adapter with gripper clamp (absolute metallic)

    The adapter is clamped to the end pipe with hose clamps.

    There are no temperature sesitive seals. So this adapter can stand high temperature but is restricted in thightness.

    Other Adapter

    Simple adapters for round and oval profiles.
    The connection is made with silicon hoses and hose clamps.

    In order of the connection there is a great surface of the silicon hose in contact with the exhaust. 
    That can be have a negativ effect to the results from exhaust measurements.
