Thermo-Technical Laboratory

Thermo-Technical Laboratory

The business unit Energy and Thermal Management possesses a modern thermo-technical laboratory providing variable fluids and high-quality measurement technology:

  • thermal and fluidic characterization of materials, structures and prototypic components,
  • generation and temperature control (-40 °C … 600 °C) of defined gaseous flows by means of mass flow controllers (air, up to 250 l/min),
  • generation and temperature control (-40 °C … 200 °C) of defined liquid flows (water, silicone oil),
  • pressure, temperature, flow and velocity measurement of gases and liquids,
  • thermal conductivity measurement of variable materials and cellular materials in particular - steady-state plate method,
    - transient hot disk method,
  • high-performance, transportable thermography system (up to 2,200 °C, resolution 40 μm, picture frequency up to 60 Hz).

The long-time know-how in measuring as well as the excellent technical equipment in the business unit ensure topmost accuracy, generalisability and, therefore, the ability to extrapolate the gained results.
