The testo 340 diesel engine kit is the ideal instrument to check engine optimum performance from diesel engines.

For many years, Australian underground coal mines have used diesel-powered equipment extensively. Colliery employees have expressed concern over how this machinery affects their health. Exposure to diesel exhaust emissions may lead to unpleasant aromas, eye and respiratory tract irritation, as well as more serious health problems. 

Coal mines regulations require that each piece of diesel machinery is compliant with legislation that dictates ideal engine exhaust gas concentrations. 

When working in underground mines, you need to ensure your machinery is running efficiently. In addition, it's advisable to minimise your equipment's impact on the environment. 

The testo 340 diesel kit can assist you in both respects. For example, you can use this instrument to commission and troubleshoot diesel powered trucks, excavators, draglines, bucket wheel excavators and other machines. It allows you to tune their engines according to the recommended operating parameters. 

The testo 340 diesel kit also displays a variety of parameters carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxide, nitrogen dioxide to register exhaust gas emissions. This allows you to determine whether your options are negatively impacting the environment or worker health. 

When purchasing the testo 340 diesel kit, you can choose from a variety of probes to suit varying temperatures and dust conditions. These extensions are designed for harsh industrial environments, allowing you to get accurate readings without the risk of damaging the instrument.
