ThermoCar heaters tested at 100%
JULY 2015: Carlor Engineering has always been synonymous with quality. 100% of our TopStart pumped heaters are tested on different parameters (electrical insulation, grounding test, watertightness at 6 bars, etc.).
Even though we were already testing some parameters of our ThermoCar heaters (insulation resistance, grounding operation and the heating operation), we were not testing their watertightness.
Although the return rate of the ThermoCar heaters for waterproofness issues under the two-years warranty period was at a very low level (0,3% in 2014) we have recently invested in an automatic leak testing machine ATEQ F620 to detect any leakage on the ThermoCar heaters.
From now on, 100% of the production of the ThermoCar will be tested with this machine. Even though this new step is more time consuming, we want to make sure that when a customer buys a ThermoCar he doesn’t encounter any leakage that could lead to other big expenses (new coolant, engine damages, etc.) said production manager Denis Léonard. We want the ThermoCar to be the most reliable thermosiphon heater on the market. We want to achieve a 0% return rate under the warranty period.
