Fuel cell vehicles use a fuel cell to generate electrical energy from hydrogen or methanol energy carriers; that electrical energy is then converted directly into movement via the electric drive or temporarily stored in a traction battery.
Continental offers lines for thermal management, fuel supply and air intake for fuel cell drives.
Due to their specific operating conditions, the lines must be flame retardant and must demonstrate low electrical surface resistance. Media resistance in high-purity cooling water is especially important to ensure that the functional capacity of the fuel cells is not jeopardized.
A special material has been developed to meet the particular demands of cooling circuits for fuel cell applications.
Charge air hoses for fuel cell applications.
The transportation of gaseous hydrogen requires flexible lines that are completely gas tight.
