Cooling Systems for Rolling Stock

Custom-built heat exchanging solutions

In recent years AKG Thermotechnik International (AKG) has gained application experience with systems in the rail vehicle industry. Based on this wide range of experience in the business, AKG offers its customers more and more complete solutions for cooling tasks.

With this strategy, AKG also meets the wishes of many customers who no longer want to assemble the cooling systems for their machines from individual components themselves - as in the past - but instead want to purchase a ready-to-install cooling module, which is delivered directly to the assembly line on time for installation. This strategy involves a shift of design, engineering, procurement, assembly and testing activities from the customer to AKG, resulting in significantly more effort than the sale of individual coolers. AKG does this effort to offer its customers more than our competitors.

When designing system solutions, we pay close attention to the fact that combining individual components into assemblies lead to cost savings, so that the system solution does not become more expensive than the previous solution with individual components. In some cases, components that were previously mounted on the cooler can also be integrated into the radiator collection box or welded to the radiator. AKG has appointed a team of experts in the relevant disciplines such as noise, strength calculation, fans, hydraulic and electrical drives, sensors, vibration and bearing support to assist the sales force in acquiring and processing system projects. These experts work on the respective system projects as required.
