Hatz first designed and developed its Test Bed TD200 back in 2006 and it remains a popular product for Universities and Colleges.

The TD200 incorporates either a Hatz 1B20 or 1B40 engine, with both of these engines are used in a variety of mobile and stationary operations due to their compact installation dimensions and low weight.

The TD200 is designed for safe and effective studies and demonstrations of four-stroke, single-cylinder diesel engines. It has been modified for use with optional Pressure (ECA101) and Crank Angle (ECA102) Transducers and Engine Cycle Analyser (ECA100).

TecQuipment lead mechanical engineer, Jack Rawling said, “We needed an engine that was air-cooled, reliable, and around 3.5kW. The IB range is easily modified to accept a cylinder pressure transducer. For me, as the engineer in charge of the production design of our thermodynamics range, the engine design has remained constant and is always been available, which means I’ve not had to put work into altering our end product.”

Mr. Rawling added, “I can’t fault the Hatz service – a big shout out to Dean Perrin and Matthew Jones at Hatz GB. Spot On!”

Established in 1958, TecQuipment designs, manufactures and supplies educational equipment for engineering to universities, colleges and industry to over 100 different countries. Its equipment is produced under a ‘World Class’ quality system accredited to ISO9001, ensuring the highest possible standards are maintained.

Hatz diesel engines have been around since 1910. From its manufacturing base situated at Ruhstorf, Germany, Hatz produce a range of modern diesel engines from 3 to 56 kW. Hatz diesel engines are used to power a wide range of construction, agricultural, pumping and access machinery. Its UK subsidiary, Hatz GB Limited, has its facilities centrally located in Hinckley, Leicestershire,
