Thermal Solar Simulation System

At Thermal Innovations Corp., we are able to develop custom thermal processing and testing solutions for commercial and advanced industrial customers alike. Through a combination of experienced engineering, state-of-the-art heating technology, and an impressive portfolio of past projects, we are able to develop complete custom processing systems.

We were recently approached by multiple automotive QA customers to develop a thermal solar simulation system for vehicle testing. Essentially simulating the hot sun on a clear day, these systems ensure that automotive components do not fail or perform unacceptably when faced with sunny weather. While we normally deal with high-intensity systems often targeted at process curing and drying, we were more than able to answer to the needs of these auto builders.

We designed and developed an infrared output heating system capable of delivering the temperature ranges and light intensities found on a clear day. Consisting of large aluminum or steel frames with multiple modular IR panels, this system was able to adjust for different size vehicles as well as different impact angles. It was also designed to run for long periods, therefore, able to simulate complete days of sunlight.

Thanks to our background and skill, we were able to quickly adapt a heating technology normally associated with high-temperature procedures at a low temperature, long time interval process. It’s this level of design flexibility that makes us so well suited to so many different projects and applications.
