After years of evolution, the modern HVAC-system in cars developed into a dynamic and self-regulating component. This kind of progress is always to be welcomed. However, new inventions often bring new disadvantages.
In order to fully control the environmental circumstances within the vehicle, the modern HVAC-system needs to deal with outside conditions, make efficient use of the engines’ warmth and control the airflow. In order to manage it all, it therefore needs an almost countless number of components, all driven by a control system. 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 for remanufacturing. Understanding the dynamics of these systems requires extensive research though. Our specialists first locate the source of the failure before investigating 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 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 way we can guarantee a truly sustainable lifecycle solution.
