ICS Cool Energy – Enhancing Reliability in Automotive Component Testing

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 centred around the cooling of compressors in their test chambers. While their chambers are equipped with a cooling function to facilitate testing in cold temperatures, the compressors require their 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 capable of dealing with high-pressure drops encountered in the test chambers.

The Solution

Recognising the customer’s specific requirements, ICS Cool Energy proposed the i-Chiller, which is 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 ICS Cool Energy i-Chiller provided the necessary cooling for the compressors and addressed the challenges posed by the high-pressure drops in the test chambers. Its adaptability ensured a seamless integration into the existing framework, showcasing ICS Cool Energy’s commitment to tailored solutions.

The Results

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