Booyco’s Custom Solutions

To serve our chosen market niche, we are staffed with a large proportion of qualified technical personnel.  We have a highly qualified and experienced team of engineers, each of whom have worked on a range of mobile HVAC systems, as well as locomotive Cooling Towers, with varying technical requirements.

Our development projects are managed by using a specification Verification Cross Reference Index (VCRI) to ensure all of our customer requirements are met and properly validated, while our design risks are minimised by using the Design Failure Mode Effect Analysis (D-FMEA) methodology, as well as a Return of Experience (REX) review, throughout the design process

Software Packages

To optimise our design and design timelines, as well as reduce risk, we utilise many top end engineering design software packages, such as:

Computer Aided Design (CAD) software for mechanical and electrical designs

Finite Element Analysis (FEA) using Siemens SimCenter, including:

    • Structural and vibration analysis
    • Fatigue analysis
    • Weld analysis
    • Structure borne vibration analysis

Computational Flow Dynamics (CFD), including:

    • Flow distributions and pressure drops
    • Ducting optimisations
    • Room/cabin thermal gradients
    • Pulldown/pullup simulations

Design data packs are produced using 3-D, parametric modelling, colour, CAD systems in sufficient detail for manufacture to take place.  Manufacturing is contracted out to companies who are selected based on the criteria of price, delivery and compliance with our specifications and military requirements.  Prototype assembly and type testing is carried out in house.

HVAC Design

We have the capability to validate each HVAC design to specific client requirements through various forms of system tests, which include:

Cooling capacity at various ambient and
internal conditions

Heating capacity
verification

Airflow and airflow
distribution

Shock and vibration
endurance testing

Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and electromagnetic
interference (EMI) compliance testing

Acoustic and vibro-acoustic
measurements

Functional and control logic
verification

Electrical safety – ground bond, insulation
resistance, voltage withstand

Power draw, including power factor and
start-up current measurement

Temperature and humidity cycling

Solar radiation testing

High/low temperature storage

Ingress protection (IP) verification

Mass verification

Salt spray and salt fog testing
