Solutions for efficient Air Conditioning Systems

Easy on the environment and on the pocket: the ECO AC refrigerant circulation system from ContiTech

Hanover, (PresseBox) - New solutions from ContiTech Fluid Technology (booth H12, hall 25) enhance the efficiency of air conditioning systems - while at the same time reducing refrigerant consumption and the weight of the unit. This goes easy not only on the environment but also on the driver's pocket. "Because ultimately, air conditioning systems play a significant role in overall fuel consumption", states Robert Wurm, head of ContiTech Fluid Technology's Industrial Hose Assembly segment.

The new ECO AC refrigerant circulation system from ContiTech offers enormous optimization potential for vehicle air conditioning systems: This extends from a performance upgrade and lower consumption through to reduced pressure losses and enhanced design. Less refrigerant is required for this lighter-weight model.

Just using the inner heat exchanger developed by ContiTech ups efficiency roughly five percent. It uses a simple thermodynamic effect to further cool down the refrigerant without increasing the energy consumption. Alongside this in-line solution, the Conti Eco Compact XR also sports a tightly sized, low-cost heat exchanger alternative developed in-house at ContiTech.
