Climate conditioning in the automotive industry

Industrial drying devices for the highest requirements

The requirements for precise air quality control in the automotive industry are high – after all, the tiniest of deviations can cause manufacturing errors or corrosion. The Trotec Group offers highly specific industrial drying devices for car manufacturers and automotive suppliers.

Humidity, temperature and dust – these three factors need to be controlled when producing cars and components. The Trotec Group has just the right high-performance devices on offer for the automotive industry: Testing environments are ideally conditioned when using our heating devices, air cleaners, mobile and stationary condenser dryers as well as dehumidifiers and humidifiers. We have the right technology available for all environmental simulations for production facilities, climatic chambers or exhaust gas test stands.

Process air conditioning in production

A particular challenge in the automotive industry poses the exact air conditioning of production processes, e.g. in a foundry, assembly line, production machine and coating line. Just name your requirements – we will compose your solution.

Corrosion protection in body shell or component storehouses

Another focal point in the storage and logistics sector besides process air conditioning is room air conditioning. Employed here are mostly stationary or mobile dehumidification systems.

Measuring systems for humidity, temperature & air flow

The following mobile measuring devices are available for the reliable control of all environmental parameters in the automotive industry:

On request we'll also gladly provide permanently installed production monitoring systems. For further information please contact us via email or telephone.

Application examples for the automotive industry

  • Infrared thermography for steel production

    Steel is used wherever high performance is required: in the sector of mechanical engineering and plant construction, in the automotive industry or for the construction of trains, railways and accessories. The demand for steel increases steadily. But in order for the steel processing industry to be able to offer high-quality products, the requirements put on crude steel are extremely high. A...

  • Inspection of engines and car bodies

    There are numerous locations on a vehicle where humidity may settle and cause great damage. Particularly the hidden corners and angles of the car body and of the engine present a serious problem. After all, the vehicle owner has no insight into these areas. When inspecting individual components such as the engine, the naked eye won't get very far either. If a component is suspected of being...

  • Environmental simulation climate chamber

    In climatic chambers and wind tunnels three factors need to be simulated at the best possible rate: air temperature, wind strength and humidity. For the latter, the automotive industry needs dehumidifiers, which also perform well at dew points below 0°C, as well as high-performance desiccant dehumidifiers.

  • Dehumidifying & air cleaning for coating

    There are three parameters to be controlled when coating car components: room temperature, humidity and the dust content in the air. In addition to dehumidifiers and heating devices we also provide sustainable air cleaners with special volumetric flow regulation for this production stage in the automotive industry.

  • Corrosion protection of car body shells

    Checking the humidity values with respect to corrosion protection is one of the chief climate conditioning tasks in the automotive industry. In addition to process air conditioning during all stages of the production chain, dehumidification plays a key role in all storage facilities. Particularly well suited for the dehumidification in body shell or component storehouses are the high-performance...

  • Professional odour neutralisation using ozone for car valeting

    In professional car valeting the same issue crops up time and time again: how do you sustainably clean the vehicle interior from persistent, clinging odours such as the smell of nicotine or dogs? With its ozone generators Trotec offers an innovative solution – which simply eliminates the odour molecules by use of ozone.

  • Air conditioning industrial processes

    Concepts with stationary or mobile dehumidification are frequently used for the process air conditioning in the industry. Often drier air is required locally in machines, plants or individual operating processes – a constant supply regardless of the surrounding conditions. For this purpose, the Trotec Group provides powerful adsorption dryers for industrial customers.

  • Measuring & control vehicle test stands

    Different climatic conditions are simulated in various test stands for the purpose of vehicle or component quality assurance. The Trotec Group offers an extensive range of state-of-the-art measuring devices and data loggers to measure these parameters – many of these are either "made in Germany" or "made in Europe".

  • Storage tents/marquees

    As opposed to conventional warehouses, marquees and large storage tents are erected quickly and at low cost. The only challenges in the face of buildings – even with insulated marquees – are condensation and humidity control. Stationary high-performance dryers with hose systems for a consistent supply of dry air prevent moisture problems in advance.

  • Drying compressed air

    The most frequent causes for a production stop are too much water vapour in the machines and installations, and corrosion inside the pipelines. Therefore, too humid compressed air should be avoided by all means. An effective option is the use of high-performance dehumidifiers. The answer to the question of how dry the compressed air has to be in order to guarantee optimum production conditions and...

  • Cable repair

    In the industrial sector, cables are often exposed to the toughest environmental conditions. Consequently, defects occur causing an interruption of the necessary power supply – in many cases for a longer period of time. To avoid serious production losses or to perform maintenance work as quickly as possible, cable breaks and defects are located with the help of infrared thermography. Cables used...

  • Engine noise measurement

    Noise regulations become increasingly strict on more and more race tracks. Residents, participants and visitors of the events shall be protected from harmful noise emissions. Thus, the rule for hosts of motor sports events is: Every vehicle should be checked with regard to noise emission in advance. Reliable measurements can be effected using the sound level measuring devices from Trotec. They...
