Many materials (especially tires!) To be heated, have at the same time a poor thermal conductivity. Conversely, this means that the heat is not distributed in the component, but must already be introduced evenly to achieve the desired result. KLS has the solution for this in the form of extremely uniform heating technologies.
These thermographic representations of other makes best illustrate the problem of other heating techniques. The dark colored lines indicate local overheating. The light gray areas indicate a temperature of approx. 80-85 ° C.
The image of the KLS-heated tire shows no thermal hot spots as with other heating systems. Both our patented carbon fiber heating technology and our alternative heating systems deliver the heat very quickly, but also extremely evenly. This is the gentlest method of warming for the tire compound, which is rewarded with maximum grip on the track. In our opinion, unsuitable technologies (see above) mean that the tire mixture loses valuable grip and durability during the heating process.
Not only can we do it quickly and evenly, we can also do it for a long time! In addition to the advantages mentioned above, our technology is also characterized by its enormous load capacity and service life.
The decisive criterion of our heating technologies is the very narrow or almost flat structure of our heating elements. Only then can the heat be introduced very quickly but still gently and without local overheating (hotspots) with high specific heating power. With an infrared camera, the uniformity of the temperature distribution can be beautifully depicted.
