Special Projects: test cells

JTS container conversions at CAPSE, Swansea University's Centre for Automotive and Power Systems Engineering.


A total of eight 30 ft shipping containers were converted into self-contained ‘test cells’ for temperature & humidity testing at CAPSE’s Pontypridd site. Battery testing can be highly volatile; to minimise risk in this case, JTS engineers designed an innovative CO2 cascade system, capable of achieving a range of +80 / -40c at high rates of temperature change. As an inert gas, CO2 has a major advantage in this application over alternative refrigerants which are either highly flammable, less efficient or have a far higher GWP (Global Warming Potential).
