Testing and Training

HOTSTART has been in the business of providing engine heating solutions since 1942. Our team of technicians has the knowledge and expertise to analyze, test and validate your engine heating system, ensuring all requirements are met before being deployed in the field.

Designing and building proven engine heating solutions is just the start. Partner with HOTSTART to ensure trouble-free heating over the entire lifetime of the system. To develop and maintain optimal heater installation practices and validation testing methods, we offer customized training sessions for dealers, distributors, packagers and manufacturers — offered onsite at your location to maximize time with complete systems. 

In-House Validation Testing

Validation testing allows you to remove the guesswork from engine heater specification and establish standardized configurations. Improving reliability and efficiency with specified engine heaters can reduce the total cost of ownership for the end user.

Our state-of-the-art facility features a fully-furnished laboratory space, including cold rooms capable of maintaining temperatures down to -40 °C. Additionally, our environmental chambers, fluid tanks, and multiple electrical power source options allow us to accurately and consistently reproduce real-world operating conditions.

Training Delivered To You

During our customized training sessions, HOTSTART engineers and technicians cover heater specification, installation and maintenance — showing you how to improve performance and reduce warranty costs. Sessions feature hands-on training, question-and-answer discussions and takeaway materials.
