A high-tech HVAC-system on a tractor or any other agricultural vehicle is a particularly complex component. In order to fully control the environmental circumstances within the vehicle, it needs to deal with outside conditions (temperature, moist), make efficient use of the engines’ warmth and control the airflow. In order to manage all these variables, it needs various operating components. This level of complexity makes the risk of failure extremely high: it only takes one failing component to compromise the whole system.
Because of the high price range of several components, HVAC systems are ideal candidates for remanufacturing. Understanding the dynamics of these systems requires extensive research though. It’s really important to discover the source of the failure and to investigate what caused this part to fail. Only this way the development of improved parts is possible.
Alec GmbH possesses several HVAC test setups that make extensive research possible in order to develop customised solutions. When necessary, high grade gels and coatings will be applied in order to protect the sensitive parts. This is how we can guarantee a truly sustainable lifecycle solution.
