Utilising the thermal prediction programme that is at the disposal of resident engineers, GDM Cooler Manufacturing Ltd are able to compliment the standard air blown cooler packs with a bespoke design service. Proposed or set thermal criteria can be input into the prediction program and cross examined manually to verify output. This is particularly beneficial when designing cooler systems that are to be situated in high ambient environments, or have limited installation space available and require maximum cooling. The bespoke nature of each design may be unique in terms of the thermal criteria, yet as GDM are able to manipulate standard parts that are readily available, the cost and availability of prototyping and implementing a finalised design into full scale production is kept competitive.
Often challenging, yet very rewarding, the bespoke design service allows GDM to draw on the technical knowledge and collective experience when offering a complete cooling solution.
The success of a bespoke design is highly dependent on being able to communicate clearly with the customer to determine a full understanding of expectations. The transition from concept to production is a process of set stages that involves creating a design file and recording all data and correspondence as part of the implemented ISO 9001:2008 system. Design projects are reviewed at each stage to ensure that full transparency and clarification remains throughout the process from first interaction to completion.
Design Processes Include:
Units Designed to replace existing heat exchanger designs (Reverse Engineering)
Radiators to fit modified vehicles
Stainless steel and titanium sets to cool sealed cabinets with sea water
Fan cowls that fit existing rads like this Perkins cooler set
Standard cooler range products modified to take air or hydraulic fan drives
Standard cooler range products made with inter-cooler tube to handle thick gear oils
Bespoke designs that have to meet strict size and material criteria
Standard Coolers given different fans
