Evaporative Emissions Testing

Evaporative emissions testing from SGS – a comprehensive range of testing methods to determine your vehicles’ evaporative emission levels.

When it comes to evaporative emissions testing, you need to select the right method for your vehicle type and precise results. Our evaporative emissions testing provides a wide range of accurate testing methods to test your vehicle emissions.

Why choose evaporative emissions testing from SGS?

We can help you:

  • Test evaporative emissions, including those resulting from leaks of liquid fuel
  • Identify hot soak, running-loss, resting-loss, and refueling-loss emissions
  • Analyse vehicle fuel emissions that are not related to exhaust and determine the volatile organic compounds (VOC) levels with Sealed Housing for Evaporative Determination (SHED) testing
  • Meet the evaporative emissions testing requirements outlined in CFR Title 40 Part 86 with our variable temperature (VT) SHED testing
  • Measure any loss of gasoline vapors that might escape the vehicle’s onboard refueling vapor recovery systems (ORVR) during the refueling activity with our ORVR test
  • Determine evaporative emissions, including the four categories of liquid fuel leaks: hot soak, running loss, resting loss, and refueling loss
