Case Studies


  • Challenge 
    • Quickly design a high ambient Military Environmental Control Unit (ECU) to meet stringent specifications and schedule
  • Solution 
    •  System simulation to evaluate refrigerant and component alternatives
    • Proof of concept testing to validate simulation model results
    •  System simulation to finalize component selection and system performance
  • Benefit 
    • Computer simulation allows rapid evaluation of many alternative designs at many operating conditions 
    • Limited testing required to confirm results

“Bob and the entire Design Services Network team were very responsive to our needs. They worked long hours, including testing on weekends to accommodate our very tight schedule. Their refrigeration system expertise was very helpful in defining our overall system design. Especially valuable was their ability to work directly with key suppliers such as Copeland to obtain the required pre-release performance data and sample test components. I look forward to working with them again.”
