Condensors of the air conditioner are installed in the outer block of the front of the car and they are very easy to damage. And this question is not so much comfort, how much security is a reliable and smooth operation of the climate system is extremely important, especially in electric vehicles and hybrids, because their batteries and power electronics need constant cooling. The refusal of the air conditioning system can lead to serious faults and even the full cargo failure.
Mahle reliably satisfies the global demand of independent car services for air conditioning condenses — there are already 21 MAHLE logistics center around the world.
«The increase in the number of electric vehicles and hybrids in the world has changed the role of the climate system. This led to an increase in the volume of work related to the service of autoconditioners, «says Olaf Henning, member of the Board and General Director of MAHLE Aftermarket. «When the workshops inform people about the importance of servicing the air conditioning system, they are thereby protecting the vehicles of their customers from damage and ensure their mobility. And Mahle helps in this: we provide auto-operating training, the necessary information materials, as well as our proven service and diagnostic solutions for A / C. «
How condenser works
The condition of conditioner condenser is cooling and liquefying the refrigerant heated during compression in the air conditioner compressor. The refrigerant in the form of hot gas enters the condenser, gives heat to the environment through the tubes and edges of the condenser and thereby cooled. The cooled refrigerant turns into a liquid again and returns to the system.
Condensor malfunction leads to a decrease in the cooling level up to the failure of the air conditioning system. In addition, it leads to the continuous operation of the condensing fan. If the condense suspicion occurs, the manufacturer recommends that the master checks it for leaks, pollution or damage, as well as test pressure tests on high and low pressure sides.
