When we are at the final development stages of a new viscous clutch model, it is essential to carry out performance tests in the vehicle itself in order to verify that the clutch behaviour meets the cooling needs of the vehicle under real conditions.
This type of tests is mainly required when a new clutch model needs to be validated, in which it has been implemented improvements or innovations in the design that might interact with the behaviour of the vehicle cooling system.
Even though Cojali has test benches specifically designed for any type of test, those tests performed in the vehicle provide higher reliability. Thanks to them, it is possible to check on site the viscous clutch behaviour when being used.
Another fundamental aspect that must be considered in this process is the correct installation of the new clutch in the vehicle. In this regard, Cojali offers to its customers simple installation guides, developed specifically for this purpose.
Once the viscous clutch has been installed in the vehicle, it is possible to carry out two different types of tests:
Once both tests have been performed, provided that the final result is satisfactory, the new clutch is 100% validated and ready to be used.
