GEA Bock mobile compressors

GEA Bock – Bus Climate Control made Simple

For the first time, GEA Bock presents a 3-D animation developed for training and seminars that visualizes the design and functionality of a bus air-conditioning system.

The topic 3-D animation has made its way beyond the movies theatres and has established as an important and effective medium of communication in all areas of product presentation.

GEA Bock uses 3-D animation already for some years for its communcation to visualize the complex technical characteristics of its compressors.

To explain customers and operators of buses in the field of exhibitions, trainings etc. the functionality of the whole bus air-conditioning in an easy way, GEA Bock went even further this time and developed an animation of the whole bus air-conditioning system.

In the 3-D animation, the audience takes a virtual bus tour and while following the flow of the refrigerant  through the whole system, they can experience all important components of a bus air-conditioning system and how they function.

The tour through the refrigeration circuit starts at the compressor and the electromagnetic clutch and then follows the refrigerant up to the condenser. The way leads over the refrigerant receiver to the filter drier and solenoid valve, then to the expansion valve and shows at the end the fans that blow the air, cooled by the compressor, into the vehicle interior and cool it.
