Description

The Prototyping and Thermal Testing Laboratory is a cutting-edge international premise that allows testing materials and components at high temperature in a controlled environment as well as verifying their behavior on a scale relevant to the industry, thus facilitating the validation of new products or components.

The 110m2 facility houses two thermal loops with automated management and continuous monitoring, one for oil and one for air, capable of handling fluids from 400˚C to 800˚C, in a wide range of flow rates. The loops are prepared to be able to insert the components under study, which are subjected to the pre-established conditions of temperature, flow, and pressure, obtaining real-time information on their behavior.

What can we do-services

  • Test campaigns on components with air as a fluid up to 800˚C.
  • Test campaigns on components with oil as a fluid up to 400˚C.
  • Construction of thermodynamic models based on experimental results, which allows optimizing the design avoiding the over cost of the "trial-error."
  • Advice on improving the thermal design of components and industrial processes.
