Hose lines for fuel cell applications
In the case of fuel cell vehicles, electrical energy is generated from the energy carriers hydrogen or methanol by a fuel cell and is converted directly into movement with the electric drive or temporarily stored in a traction battery.
For fuel cell drives, ContiTech offers lines for thermal management, fuel supply and air intake. Due to the special application conditions, the pipes must be hardly inflammable and must not have a high electrical surface resistance. Particularly important is the media resistance in high-purity cooling water to ensure the functional capacity of the fuel cells.
