Especially in the current times, it is crucial to travel safely on buses and coaches. This is because pathogens can spread more easily in enclosed rooms – such as the passenger area in public transport. To make travelling by bus and coach safer, Eberspaecher has developed a three-step-solution to provide clean air inside buses: Particle filters capture small water droplets containing viruses. The Polarised Media Electronic Air Cleaner filters small particles from the air even more effectively. Furthermore, the UV-C LED Module is the ideal solution to sterilize up to 99.9 percent of the air that is transported through the air-conditioning unit. The solutions offer clean air in buses both individually and in combination. Thus, Eberspaecher contributes to the safety of passengers and vehicle operators. Further information
With the opening of the new production plant in Saltillo, Mexico, Eberspächer is now in direct proximity to its North American customers and therefore the most important international car manufacturers. Complete emission control systems as well as components like particulate filters and catalytic converters for passenger cars and commercial vehicles are now produced at about 21,000 square meters. Almost 90% of the total area in the new plant is earmarked for the production and logistics areas. The buildings were completed in only nine months. Around 300 employees are already working at the plant and staff will increase to about 500 by mid-2021. The production plant supplies all major international automobile manufacturers and is designed for sustainable growth. Further information
Catalytic converters require a certain minimum temperature in order to purify the exhaust gases efficiently. The optimum temperature is only achieved when the engine is running, depending on the driving distance and profile. Due to a further reduction in emission limit values by the upcoming EURO 7 emission standard, this period offers the potential for further improvement. This is exactly where Eberspächer brings in its first serial product of the Active Heating product family – EHC Lamella Heater. If required, the electrically heated catalyst heats up the exhaust gas purification system even before the engine is started, thus already increasing the efficiency right from the start of the journey. The earlier activation of the SCR system can reduce NOx emissions by up to 90 percent. Further information
