Schaeffler expands aftermarket range with thermal management modules

by Autocar Pro News Desk , 08 Jun 2022


Global automotive supplier, Schaeffler is expanding its range of thermal management modules under the INA brand. The component manufacturer is developing thermal management modules that are capable of controlling the coolant temperature in various cooling circuits enabling the engine to reach its optimum operating temperature more quickly and comply with the increased engine cooling requirements for start-stop systems and hybrids. 

Schaeffler's second generation thermal management module is based on rotary slide valves that control the coolant flow depending on the driving situation. The concept features two independent rotary slide valves which would significantly improve vehicle functionality. This new repair solutions cover a car park of more than two million vehicles

Maik Evers, head of product management, Schaeffler Automotive Aftermarket said, "Thermal management plays a central role in improving energy efficiency and reducing CO2 emissions of vehicles. Fine-tuned, intelligent control of increasingly complex cooling and heating circuits ensures that all relevant systems operate within the optimum temperature range at all times. This protects the environment and at the same time increases the service life of the components. In line with development of the global car parc, we are constantly developing our thermal management product range. We are proud to be the first supplier in the aftermarket to offer this repair solution for hybrid vehicles."
