Case study No. 3: Automotive

Initial situationsituationtion

A corrosion test chamber from the automotive industry must be air-conditioned. The air temperatures are between -15°C and +60°C and must be controlled in a short time. The corrosion test chamber lies in a saline mist.

Stainless steel heat exchangers cannot be used, because the customer wants to minimize the risk of rust particles in the air.

Task

In cooperation with the plant manufacturer, a solution for air conditioning of the room must be found. The exchanger should be located in the inflow channel to ensure a fast regulation of the system. One hundred percent corrosion resistance must be guaranteed. The temperatures of the heating and cooling medium (automotive) are between -30°C and +80°C.

Solution

Our Calorplast gas-water heat exchanger made of high-quality PE-RT plastic, can be used at low temperatures of -30°C as well as at 80°C. At the same time, it is made of solid plastic and therefore 100% corrosion-resistant to the salty air. The design and the installation is developed in cooperation with the customer and calculated, constructed and manufactured according to the customer’s requirements .

Result

The corrosion test chamber can be built without corrosion-prone materials and can be operated without interference. Temperature control in the chamber is also guaranteed.
