Light, Variable and Individual: MöllerWerke Offers Complete Air Duct Systems
From customised fabric expansion joints to traction motor boots or hoses and elbows – the product variety of MöllerWerke regarding the railway sector is constantly expanding.
Recently, the Bielefeld based company is producing individually manufactured lightweight air duct systems for the HVAC sector. The air duct systems are designable to any vehicle geometry and can be extended with the MöllerWerke fabric expansion joints to a complete air guiding system. Thus, MöllerWerke offers customers the possibility to purchase a complete system.
MöllerWerke air duct systems are all manufactured individually according to customer requirements and ensure reliable and uniform air circulation in air-conditioned passenger compartments as well as driver’s cabs. The air ducts are made of a sandwich material, which consists of PU foam and is laminated by an aluminium foil on both sides. In addition, the 12 mm thick sandwich material has an insulating core to keep heat losses within the duct system low (thermal conductivity: λ 0,022W/(mK)). Due to the low density of the sandwich (60 kg / m3) the system is lightweight.
The air duct systems have a wide range of applications with regard to temperature fluctuations and have been developed for operating temperatures from -40°C to +80°C. In addition, the material meets the fire protection standard according to EN 45545-2 and is classified regarding R1/HL3. Due to the hazard level 3 classification there are no restrictions in the operation area.
MöllerWerke is a certified adhesive specialist according to DIN 6701-2. In the certified production area, the cut segments are assembled to a duct system. On customer request, the air ducts can be completed with further applications such as brackets, cleaning openings or interfaces for compensators.
In the company’s own test laboratory, the air ducts can be tested according to DIN EN 61373. MöllerWerke also offers the organisation of tests regarding other international standards as well as customer-specific requirements.
No matter whether tram, train or locomotive – MöllerWerke equips your vehicle with individual air duct systems.
