COMBINED EXPERIENCE OF OUR TOP CLASS BRANDS

KEEPING INNOVATION AT THE FOREFRONT

Kelvion’s comprehensive research and development facilities enable us not only to validate the performance of our products, but also to optimize customized solutions directly for your application.
Our extensive, decades-long,  experience of working as a nominated technical partner with end users, technology start-ups, universities and established engineering organizations has given us a diverse knowledge base. This allows us to find a solution to meet the most challenging cooling and heat exchange requirements. Continuously researching heat exchanger optimization is critical to achieving our innovation goals and and understanding our application is pivotal to this success.

3 EUROPEAN FACILITIES

2,000 m² LABORATORY

Our laboratory facilities across Europe can test air coolers with a thermal balance up to a nominal maximum capacity of 600 kW (from 100 W), and dry air coolers/ambient rejecters up to a 1.4 MW. A calibrated calorimeter chamber capable of holding units with dimensions of up to 12 m long, 4 m high and 3 m wide, allows for the largest of heat exchangers to be tested. The in-house wind tunnels can test air volumes up to 50,000 m3/hour and higher air volumes can be calculated from lower fan speed testing. Synthetic refrigerants can be tested up to a nominal capacity of 600 kW and CO2 systems can be tested up to 150 kW; a range of other working fluid (synthetic and natural) can also be tested at various conditions and capacities. With a range of facilties available, we will try and find rapid testing solutions to meet requirements.  The NH3 system can test directly cooled, Dry-Expansion(DX)-Evaporators as well as Evaporators in Pump Operation and Condensers. Additionally cooling Secondary Refrigerants (water/glycol mixture) is possible, so that Air Coolers and Dry Coolers for indirect cooling can also be tested. With a range of facilties available, we will try and find rapid testing solutions to meet requirements.
