As the demand for electric machinery, both on- and off-road, continues to surge, there's a growing emphasis on thermal management solutions. Among these, durable, efficient, and reliable hose and fitting systems stand out as indispensable components. They play a pivotal role in ensuring the peak performance, safety, and durability of electric vehicles (EVs) navigating through diverse and challenging terrains, all while effectively managing heat generation and dissipation. 
We invite you to join Parker’s experts in hose and fitting technology for an informative webinar. Our session will delve into various aspects of hose and fitting design tailored specifically for thermal management in EVs, whether they operate on urban streets or rugged off-road environments.  

Gain valuable insights into:
•  Regulatory Guidelines: Understand the regulatory landscape governing thermal management systems in EVs. 
•  Standards and Cooling Requirements: Learn about industry standards and cooling specifications crucial for optimal performance. 
•  Design Considerations: Explore key design factors influencing the efficiency and reliability of hose and fitting systems. 
•  Prototypes vs. Serial Production: Navigate the transition from prototype development to full-scale production seamlessly. 
•  Sustainability and Recycling Impact: Discover sustainable practices and their impact on the lifecycle of EV components. 

During the machine design process, selecting the main components rightly holds significance. However, the plumbing design of hose and fittings should not be overlooked, particularly in thermal management applications. By leveraging advanced engineering techniques, cutting-edge materials, and innovative designs, manufacturers can effectively address heat challenges in diverse environments, ensuring the longevity and efficiency of EV systems.
