ECOPHIT® – Comfortable Climate Conditions Inside Truck Cabs

The centerpiece of a new system for air-conditioning of truck cabs is an innovative cold storage cell made from ECOPHIT® produced by SGL Group.

A new technology developed by Webasto AG provides environmentally friendly air-conditioning of truck cabs without the need for a running engine.

The basic principle of this system lies in the cooling of the ECOPHIT® storage cell and the freezing (“charging”) of the PCM stored in the graphite while the vehicle is being driven and the conventional air conditioner is in operation. The cold energy gained thereby is then used for regulating the interior climate when the engine is turned off. The storage unit releases and circulates the cool air during rest hours or at night, cooling the driver’s cab – for up to ten hours.
