Air conditioning / CoolSteam

Air conditioning / CoolSteam

The comfort requirements of modern cars are rising continuously. In addition to rapid heating of the passenger compartment in winter, the customer expects rapid cooling in summer. Furthermore, this functionality will in future be desired by customers even in vehicles that are parked, without the engine running. The CoolSteam system developed by MAHLE Amovis GmbH combines the advantages of heat recovery with a compact adsorption refrigeration unit. This results in the following characteristics:

  • mechanical energy and air conditioning from waste heat
  • steam + adsorption = heat recovery + cooling
  • cooling right from the start
  • rapid warm-up of the internal combustion engine
  • elimination of the conventional air conditioning unit
  • high potential savings of CO2
  • relevant in the standard driving cycle and in use by the customer
