-        Key life testing - Motorcraft Belt Tensioners are tested on the engine/vehicle application for which they were designed in addition to all bench testing

-        Corrosion testing – tests the effects of a corrosive environment on various components of the tensioner. Upon completion of 240 hour test, tensioner should show no signs of:

  • Noise
  • Parallelism and offset change
