KST uses high performance swiveling test benches for oil supply tests.
They simulate changes to the oil supply during acceleration or deceleration of the vehicle, as well as fast cornering.
The tests are performed at maximum swivel angles and extreme oil levels in motoring or skip-fired operation, and also with different engine oil temperatures and degrees of engine aging. If the results deviate from the specifications we determine optimization measures and also calculate the necessary minimum and maximum oil levels for secure operation. Beyond that, KST determines constructive changes in the oil circuit, like to the oil pump or to the oil pan.
