Hanon Systems receives Korean certification for water-cooled condenser for EVs
Next-generation technology improves heat pump efficiency in electric vehicles with fewer components
Hanon Systems, a leading global thermal and energy management automotive supplier, has received a New Excellent Technology (NET) certificate from the Korean Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy for its water-cooled condenser with integrated receiver drier.
The NET certification ceremony, hosted by the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy and organized by the Korea Industrial Technology Promotion Association, was held as a virtual event on September 22.
The recognition is for a patented technology designed specifically for electric vehicles. The water-cooled condenser includes an integrated receiver drier and is an integral component of a heat pump system, which effectively manages the heating and cooling of electric vehicles, and can support maintaining an optimal temperature of vehicle electrical and electronics such as motors, inverters and batteries. Compared to air-cooled condensers, the heat dissipation of the Hanon Systems water-cooled condenser with integrated receiver drier improves performance by more than 20 percent, and offers weight saving benefits through fewer components. The technology also supports 800-volt rapid charging.
“Hanon Systems is well-positioned with a broad range of innovative thermal management solutions for the eco-friendly vehicle market,” said Steven Clarke, chief technology officer of Hanon Systems. “This recognition is another testament to the talent of our technical team in developing solutions that will play an important role in helping automakers commercialize electric vehicles in the growing eco-friendly segment.”
Since the inception of this certification program, Hanon Systems has been awarded 16 new excellent technology (NET) certificates.
