iku®windows cleaning system for wind channel car tests
"Innovative technology for BMW and MERCEDES"

iku®windows is a problem solver for various industries. Unique cleaning system makes wind channel car tests more effective.

iku®windows, well known for its intelligent façade systems with integrated self cleaning mechanism, made a further step in the application of its technology. The leading automobile brands like BMW and Mercedes discovered the benefits of the iku®windows systems. Car testing in climate channels is required in order to verify passenger comfort, safety and availability at an early project stage and to guarantee these qualities in large-scale production.

system on the heat exchanger

The aerodynamic wipers with integrated brushes keep the grid ice free during the whole test
session. The wipers move up and the down the grid continuously and take away tiny
snow crystals, which grow out of extremely low temperatures in the
testing area.

®windows avoids interruptions and saves costs

With iku®windows a permanent use of the testing facility without interruption is guaranteed. The aerodynamic wipers with integrated brushes keep the grid ice free during the whole test session. The wipers move up and the down the grid continuously and take away tiny snow crystals, which grow out of extremely low temperatures in the testing area. So the heat exchanger works more efficiently and above all it functions permanently. The cost saving for automotive industry is self-evident.

The basic system, invented by Julius Thurnher and worldwide patented, is used mainly in the building industry. In the occasion of testing it at the largest institution for wind channels European wide, the idea came up to use it for the heat exchanger also. This was the initial start for cooperation with MCE.testing area.

Third account for iku®windows by general contractor MCE

MCE AG located in Lower Austria, is a specialist for construction of climate wind channels. The first common project with iku®windows was the equipment for “RTA-Rail Tec Arsenal” in Vienna, Austria.

In 2008 BMW in Munich, Germany, invited MCE to construct a climate channel for its centre for energy and technology. The project coordinators of the climate wind channel sector of MCE are convinced about the benefits of iku®windows: "The technology of iku®windows enables a more efficient use of our high-tech climate facility. The recent assignment of the “Daimler AG” (Mercedes, Smart) is a further affirmation for our positive cooperation. This testing facility will be fulfilled end of 2010."
