Many acoustic components are used in-and-around engines and air-conditioning systems. This is why Carcoustics has also built-up proven expertise in heat transfer technology, and fluid mechanics (thermodynamics) investing  in the very latest technology and equipment.

Energy Efficiency

Thermodynamics is involved in many areas. It can be used to improve the energy efficiency of products, protect components from overheating via the use of heat shields and improve heat insulation. Through the intelligent use of heat transfer management and fluid mechanics, Carcoustics can develop and design components with very specific behavioral characteristics when used in real-life applications.

The latest technology for the best results

Carcoustics' experts have access to a wide-range of thermal testing and measuring equipment as well as a thermodynamics laboratory equipped with the very latest in multiphysical measuring technology. Heat testing equipment, infrared thermal imaging cameras, venturis and a range of sensors to measure temperature, pressure and moisture provide fast and accurate data that can be used for simulations and the development of innovative solutions.

Acoustics and thermodynamics working hand-in-hand

Many acoustic components also have a thermodynamic function. There is always a danger that they will work against each other, so it is important to find the right balance. At Carcoustics, acoustics and thermodynamics specialists work in tandem to achieve optimum results.This creates useful synergies that can be exploited to maximum effect. Customers who may have originally only specified an acoustic or thermodynamic function for a component often find that the end product is a component that actually performs both functions.
