In-house modern thermal laboratory with a broad range of testing capabilities.
Continuous product development is essential to provide clients with the best-in-class heat exchangers. With our thermal laboratory, we can verify our design ideas swiftly and improve the products we offer.
AIC’s thermal laboratory can perform all necessary tests for most heat exchangers in order to check their effectiveness and reliability. A team of experienced test engineers has all the required skills to adapt all available equipment and apparatus to the specific tests required in the project.
We take full advantage of the in-house thermal laboratory. We run all tests agilely, managing them quickly and, if necessary, reacting with rapid implementation of design changes to the tested device. It reduces the time needed for a particular unit to be fully verified.
We have experience with testing procedures for a number of different standards and organisations, such as ErP, ASHRAE, ISO, etc. Certifications of ISO 9001, ISO 17025, and ISO 15502 guarantee the highest level of reliability of all tests carried out in the thermal lab.
