EGR Cooler Testing Facilities
Imagine, the last EGR cooler you will need to buy for your truck. M1M™ EGR Coolers has invested many years in the development of a robust system that can take extreme thermal stress created by modern, more fuel efficient engine designs.
Analysis Led Design
M1M™ EGR Coolers are designed by our Engineers at our facility located near Chicago Illinois. During the design phase of this EGR project, we utilized virtual 3D modeling to ensure our EGR cooler fits precisely with your heavy duty engine. This analysis led design included a variety of tests such as frequency, torque, torsion, pressure, heat/cold testing with full data logging.
M1M™ EGR coolers uses a variety of C.A.E. (Computer Aided Engineering) programs to determine they will perform such as F.E.A. (Final Element Analysis).
Finite Element Fatigue
The finite element method is used to solve complex elasticity and structural problems. Our approach to determining the fatigue life of a component starts by building a model and subjecting it to various testing conditions, simulating the environment where the component would be used i.e. the cycles, heat vs. cold, corrosion etc.
Prior to and during this testing, geometry, load histories and material data are collected so that the stress and strain placed on component can be assessed.
Post testing, this damage is analyzed and the result is given an Finite Element Fatigue (F.E.A.) code which combines the stress or strain results from the FE models to estimate the x life or the eventual component failure.
