We can measure and control our test equipment directly via Internet or any communication network and simultaneously program the equipment to forward messages and information to a mobile phone or an e-mail address.

Our test equipment services include:

  • Impulse test machines
  • Customer adapted testing
    Etteplan manufactures customer adapted testing equipment for advanced product development and efficient production. We offer specially adapted test equipment for the vehicle and vessel industries. We are primarily specialized in equipment for Heat/Cold, Heat exchange, Flow, Current, Pressure, Force, Momentum, Lifetime and ageing.
  • Testing and Test Equipment for complete testing and analysis of HVAC system, for cooling agents R744 (CO2), R152a and R134a.  

 

Test and Analysis

To be able to understand the technology one works with, you need, in addition to in-depth theoretical knowledge, to understand and control the analysis processes in your daily work. This is what we do in our laboratory. Etteplan has developed unique test equipment, a large climate chamber and three rigs for A/C, heat exchange and after treatment of emissions. Etteplan has also developed a thermic dummy, a mobile data management system, and a patented oil recycling system to name a few of our inventions. We have the expertise to measure temperatures, pressure and flows in most conditions.

Etteplan’s competitive advantage is based on unique in-house developed testing equipment and methods. Etteplan’s experienced engineers have in-depth understanding of how to solve the most challenging requirements for optimal, efficient and environmentally friendly performance of products and machines.
