The MSI-3 160 bar Leutert Peak Pressure Indicator is a precision instrument used for measuring peak cylinder pressure in internal combustion engines, designed and manufactured by Leutert, a German company specializing in advanced engine measuring instruments and equipment. The 160 bar specification refers to the maximum pressure range that the instrument can accurately measure, which is 160 bar or approximately 2,320 psi.
The MSI-3 Leutert Peak Pressure Indicator is used in various applications, including marine, power generation, automotive, and industrial engines, to monitor and analyze the performance and health of the engine. By measuring peak cylinder pressures, engineers can diagnose potential issues, optimize engine performance, and ensure the engine is running efficiently.
The device is typically mounted on the cylinder head of an engine, and it uses a high-precision pressure sensor to capture the peak pressure inside the combustion chamber during the combustion cycle. The data collected can be used to assess the combustion process, evaluate engine tuning, and detect issues such as knocking, pre-ignition, or incomplete combustion. The MSI-3 Leutert Peak Pressure Indicator is valued for its accuracy, reliability, and ease of use, making it a popular choice among engine professionals and technicians.
