Temperature control is a critical factor during the development of alternative drive solutions, batteries, materials and other vehicle components. This testing often requires that the heat transfer fluid (HTF) used is a water-ethylene glycol mixture.
To address these applications, Huber has developed temperature control systems designed and tested specifically for the automotive industry, for use with water-ethylene glycol in the temperature range of -45°C to 95°C.
Based on the proven Unistat technology, developed by Huber over 40 years ago, the innovative Unimotive technology operates with a very low volume of HTF, uses plate heat exchangers for efficient thermal transfer and has a sealed fluid system. This results in very short “time to temperature” times, as well as extremely responsive, stable, accurate and repeatable temperature control.
The Unimotive series comprises of five units with up to 35 kW cooling capacity and 24 kW heating capacity. The models are fitted with a magnetically coupled, speed-controlled pump with a maximum flow of 145 l/min and pressure up to 5.5 Bar.
