Applied Materials Engineering

Priorities of Research & Development and Services

The ILK main department Applied Materials Engineering has expertise in the field of refrigerants and working fluids, their stability and compatibility with materials, in measurement and control technologies for complete plant systems, in leak search/tightness tests as well as in photovoltaic applications.

We offer our broad experiences and our experimental facillities for reasearch, development and services, measurements and testing in the following fields of technology and working areas.

Fields of technology

  • Working fluids and their calculation models
  • Tightness, permeation and sensor technology
  • Absorption and adsorption processes
  • Drying in cooling and air conditioning cycles
  • Water, materials, corrosion
  • Functional material systems
  • Mechanical material properties at low temperatures
  • Applied sensor-, measurement- and control technologies
  • Photo-voltaic systems for cooling and air conditioning
  • Heat and cold storages
  • Heat-pipe applications
