Enhancing Reliability in Automotive Component Testing

Terug naar casestudy's

In the dynamic landscape of automotive component testing, precision and reliability are paramount.

Test chambers, used by many automotive OEMs, subject components to extreme conditions, such as pressures, temperatures, and vibrations, to ensure their resilience in real-world scenarios.

Automotive manufacturers have stringent demands for accuracy and dependability, which rely on cutting-edge test chambers to simulate real-world challenges.

One of the UK manufacturers of test chambers for automotive and other diverse applications, engaged ICS Cool Energy to provide a reliable, high-performance cooling system for their chambers.

THE CHALLENGE

The challenge faced by the manufacturer was centered around the cooling of compressors on their test chambers.

While their chambers are equipped with a cooling function to facilitate testing in cold temperatures, the compressors required their own cooling to operate and create the desired, reliable and stable testing conditions.

The set up of the chambers needed a solution consisting of a high-performance process chiller connected with a flexible hose and also capable of dealing with high-pressure drops encountered in the test chambers.

THE SOLUTION

Recognising the specific requirements of the customer, we proposed the i-Chiller designed for challenging process conditions.

What set this solution apart and made it an ideal choice for the customer was its designed-for-process technology and the ability to incorporate a 5-bar pump in the setup.

The i-Chiller not only provided the necessary cooling for the compressors but also addressed the unique challenges posed by the high-pressure drops in the test chambers.

Its adaptability ensured a seamless integration into the existing framework, showcasing our commitment to tailored solutions.

THE RESULT

By preventing the compressors in the test chambers from overheating, the i-Chiller significantly increased the reliability and temperature stability within the chambers.

This, in turn, enhanced the overall performance of the component testing, providing the client with accurate and dependable results.

In the automotive industry, this translates to reliable information enabling manufacturers to ensure their vehicles function optimally in all environments.

In conclusion, this case study exemplifies how our proven solutions and technologies meet the challenges faced by customers in the test chamber manufacturing industry, contributing to enhanced reliability and performance not only of their solutions, but also the components tested by their clients.

Proceskoelmachines

Proceskoelmachines

Proceskoelers worden vanaf de basis ontworpen en gebouwd om betrouwbaarder te zijn, binnen nauwere gespecificeerde toleranties te werken en robuuster te zijn voor continu gebruik in vergelijking met koelers die zijn ontworpen voor HVAC. Onze i-Chillers zijn speciaal ontworpen om de ontberingen van productie en kritische processen aan te kunnen. Proceskoelers kosten misschien iets meer dan gelijkwaardige HVAC- of comfortkoelers, maar zijn aanzienlijk voordeliger en geschikt voor een kritisch proces. Een proceskoelmachine levert een nauwkeurigere vertrekwatertemperatuur, werkt langer probleemloos, heeft lagere exploitatiekosten en een hogere restwaarde. <strong>Koelmachines gebouwd voor processen</strong> Onze serie proceskoelers is speciaal ontworpen voor processen, met kenmerken zoals unieke verdampers met lamellen die in de koudwatertank zijn ondergedompeld, waardoor ze minder gevoelig zijn voor bevriezing en bestand zijn tegen variabele belasting en procesfluctuaties. De grote geïntegreerde buffertank aan koude zijde maakt een betere temperatuurregeling mogelijk voor procestolerantie en vermindert slijtage door het starten en stoppen van de compressor. i-Chillers hebben standaard hogedrukpompen om de complexere leidingen in procestoepassingen aan te kunnen. Omdat ze volledig zijn omsloten door robuuste stalen panelen, bieden ze niet alleen bescherming, maar nemen ze ook minder ruimte in beslag voor eenvoudige toegang en plug & play installatie. <strong>Onze aanpak</strong> Sinds 1989 hebben we op maat gemaakte temperatuurregeloplossingen gecreëerd voor alle productie-, industriële en kritische procestoepassingen. Met een netwerk van zeer ervaren technische ingenieurs in het hele land, bezoeken we uw locatie om uw exacte toepassingsbehoeften te begrijpen en controleren we uw faciliteiten en mogelijke beperkingen om de optimale oplossing voor uw omstandigheden te ontwikkelen. We kunnen kant-en-klare oplossingen op maat ontwerpen, installeren, in bedrijf stellen en projectbeheer uitvoeren en volledige, op maat gemaakte 24/7 onderhouds- en storingsondersteuning bieden met ons landelijke service- en verhuurteam.
