Denso launches advanced commercial vehicle cooling system

Japanese automotive major Denso, which is focused on addressing challenges within the logistics industry, such as improving working conditions for truck drivers and achieving efficient energy utilisation, has developed an advanced cooling system that provides comfort and energy efficiency when a commercial vehicle’s engine is off.

‘Everycool’, as per the company, is a cooling system that achieves the dual objectives of improving driver working conditions during hot summer seasons and reducing environmental impact and promoting efficient energy utilisation by lowering fuel consumption.

Everycool leverages Denso’s expertise in air-conditioning technology, directing cool air intensively towards the driver, enhancing comfort. Compared to traditional cabin-wide cooling systems in Japan, it reduces power consumption by approximately 57%, achieving energy efficiency. As a result, it can be powered using the standard vehicle battery.

Unlike conventional cooling systems that had separate indoor and outdoor fans for heat exchange, Everycool integrates the fan, enabling a single unit to perform the entire heat exchange. Additionally, it features a small electric compressor specially developed using in-vehicle technology.

These two innovations result in a reduction of approximately 30% in size and approximately 63% in weight compared to conventional cooling systems in Japan. This compact design contributes to ensuring cabin space for drivers, enhancing the quality of their rest breaks, and supporting safe and efficient operations. Furthermore, its lightweight design minimally affects the cargo capacity, contributing to the maintenance of delivery efficiency.

COMPATIBLE WITH WIDE RANGE OF COMMERCIAL VEHICLES

According to Denso, the smaller size of Everycool compared to traditional cooling systems allows for installation without obstructing the rear window's visibility, making it suitable for a variety of vehicle types, including not only large trucks but also medium-sized trucks, and tractor-trailers. It can be installed in both new and existing vehicles.
