A long lasting cooperation with the Vienna University of Technology is coming to an end:
For more than 10 years we have sponsored the Racing Team of the Vienna University of Technology by providing consulting services, engineering and manufacturing. We have supported the students and team members with production-oriented design and manufactured various mechanical components. Some examples: Wheel nuts, parts of wheel suspension, mounting parts of aerodynamic components, mounts of wheel and other bearings, drive parts, etc.
Now we have also accompanied the team in the changeover from drive by means of combustion engine to electric drive and manufactured essential components of the drive and electric motors for this purpose. We also manufactured components for a driverless autonomous vehicle for the team.
In this newly developed system, the fixed hose unit connection remains completely unchanged. The adaptable tank unit connection has been designed as a self-closing dry disconnect coupling.
As a result, gas or liquid leakage during coupling is impossible.
A national and international patent has been granted for this development.
The tank truck standard dry disconnect coupling is available in versions with or without flame arrester in 2 inch and 3 inch sizes.
Requested by a well-known engine manufacturer we created a filter in nominal diameter DN 50 to filter diesel fuel with a fineness of 5 μm and a performance of at least 300 liters per hour.
This filter system consists of a main body with inlet and outlet flange and a filter housing with ceramic filter elements.
The medium flows through the inlet flange and a distributor pipe into the filter pot. The filtration takes place both on the surface as well as inside the filter tubes - a process known as depth filtration.
The filter tubes are easy to clean or replace thanks to the removable lid.
The system has been in use for 11 years. In the course of annual maintenance, the filter tubes can be checked and replaced as needed.
