2 A Tour to the Aeroclimatic Camera

A Tour to the Aeroclimatic Camera

Posted on July 26, 2016 by Andrey


Now I would like to write about one of the greatest facilities of the ZIL plant. It is an aeroclimatic camera.

 

An aeroclimatic complex is a unique facility that simulates various weather conditions for vehicle testing. Environmental testing and research were conducted in a wide range of ambient temperatures from -60°C to +65°C with regulation of the object air-flow speed of 0:150% km/h, at a relative humidity of 0:100%.

The picture below shows a detailed complex operation scheme:

Unfortunately, during out visit, lots of the equipment had already been gone, so in some cases there will be pictures of other authors.

Aside from the aeroclimatic camera itself, the facility hosts a laboratory and an archive.

    Looks like another abandoned facility; not vandalized yet, but coming… The ZIL company is long gone.

    I always wondered how the power stays on in these abandoned places.
