Adiabatic Cooling System Keeps Wheel Production On Track
Based in the Midlands, our client designs and manufactures the wheels which are then supplied to the automotive market worldwide. They have worked with several the market leading vehicle brands and supply the Motorsport sector.
Aqua supplied two Adiabatic Cooling systems, one of the key design benefits of the system was the ability to precisely control the exact amount of Adiabatic spray required by the process, reducing water loss and making subsequent savings on water consumption. Energy savings and overall efficiency are a real focus of the system, which is further enhanced by incorporating inverter pumps and EC fans.
One Adiabatic unit has been installed on the factory’s hydraulic press line and provides cooling for the quench tank. The second is on the diecasting line, cooling the process after the raw material has been injected into a mould under high temperature.
