Cooling Systems and Component Testing

Delivering real business benefits across key segments

What is cooling system and component testing?

The evaluation of automotive cooling systems and components can encompass a number of different safety and performance issues. A thorough evaluation can include testing for system and component durability, pressure pulsating, ageing, corrosion and erosion, climatic temperature cycling, pressure-vibration-temperature and materials testing, as well as permeation measurement.

Why is cooling system and component testing important?

Automotive cooling system and component testing offers various benefits for OEM’s and suppliers:

  • Optimise engine’s overall performance by maintaining optimal engine operating temperatures
  • Ensure compliance with industry standards and manufacturers’ specifications by thoroughly testing your cooling systems and components
  • Verify the safety and quality of your products to increase market acceptance
  • Save time and money by identifying automotive component compliance considerations and technical requirements at the earliest possible stages of the product development process
  • Minimise risks by reducing the risk of supply chain problems that can result in product recalls and reputational harm.
