MicroHeat has a patented Fluid Heating Technology for Fluid Heaters in Glycol cooling circuits targeted at electric and hybrid vehicles.
MicroHeat technology can be readily applied to existing Automotive Glycol Cooling Heating systems to provide a faster, more accurate, and more efficient vehicle heating solution than that available today.
The MicroHeat technology will adapt dynamically to the vehicle’s changing conditions, whether it be to adjust to flow changes, ramp up and stop heating, accommodate thermal conductivity changes within the glycol coolant or simply change the temperature in the circuit to accommodate the different needs of key vehicle components, better and faster than any other technology on the market.
The solution connects within the coolant circuit to deliver coolant heat for cabin heating heat exchange, coolant heat to the batteries in standby, running or charging, electronics and drives, where ever heat boosting is required across the vehicle.
The unit can be fully integrated into the vehicle management system where bi-functional control can be delivered between the coolant system and the vehicle. The unit senses changes in fluid conductivity and varies the power to the fluid to enable the most efficient heat transfer and ensuring highest thermal transfer efficiencies are achieved at all times.
The system performs on it’s own either as a central coolant heating source or at the point of use around the vehicle, reducing coolant line runs and coolant volume, ensuring the most optimised energy transfer solution to enable the vehicle to go further.
The unit can also be used as a booster for fast charging or as a standby booster for heat pump solutions, either as pre-booster or post booster to the existing heat pump solution.
MicroHeat technology advantages to existing technologies include, size, weight reduction, coolant volume reduction, optimised heating energy usage that conserves battery life, combined with accurate and responsive heating temperature control and design flexibility(Plastic and low pressure capability). These advantages are provided without the inherent traditional electric sheathed/bare element heating failures such as unresponsive and inaccurate temperature control, burn out, thermal inertia and stress corrosion.
We are actively seeking Automotive development partners to co-develop our solutions in OEM vehicles across the globe.
