Eberspächer opens new plant in China
Beginning of April with a ceremonial start of production, Eberspaecher opened a new production plant for electrical heaters in Tianjin. It will focus on manufacturing high-voltage heaters for battery electric and hybrid vehicles. In so doing, the company is strengthening its local presence and expanding its capacities for the rapidly growing Chinese passenger car market, especially for battery electric vehicles. The final expansion phase will enable the plant to produce up to one million electrical high-voltage heaters per year for battery electric vehicles in the future. The plant in Tianjin is situated in the Beichen industrial park, around 100 kilometers southeast of Beijing. In an area of 5,200 square meters, the automotive supplier produces mainly electrical high-voltage coolant heaters and low-voltage air heaters for passenger cars. In future, the plant will operate in the production network with the German sites in Herxheim and Hermsdorf, which is currently also undergoing a program of expansion. Further information
Efficient pollutant reduction for Diesel vehicles
The introduction of the Euro 6 standard imposes strict emission limit values on passenger cars and commercial vehicles. In order to comply with these limits in technology terms, automobile manufacturers are turning to modern SCR systems for their Diesel vehicles. Their purpose is to bring about chemical reduction of nitrogen oxides with the help of ammonia, which is generated in the exhaust system from the injected aqueous urea solution AdBlue. As an innovative mixing element in SCR systems, the Eberspaecher tunnel mixer enables pollutants to be minimized with maximum efficiency: Thanks to the improved design of the two deep-drawn molded parts, it ensures optimum evaporation and mixing of the aqueous urea solution with the exhaust gas. As a result, the ammonia that is released is homogeneously dispersed and reacts with the nitrogen oxides in the SCR catalytic converter to create harmless nitrogen and water. At the same time, the new mixer design relies on purposeful flow routing to minimize the occurrence of deposits. Further information
