Car condensers for air conditioning system

Car condensers for air conditioning system

Valeo has strengthened its positions as one of the world leading air conditioning manufacturers worldwide

Valeo is a full air conditioning loop expert providing the majority of the A/C and HVAC (Heating and Ventilation A/C) components to car manufacturers

Valeo follows Car Manufacturers worldwide with O.E. plants producing condensers in Europe, Asia and Americas 


Innovation: Valeo Water Condensers

Valeo's water-cooled condenser for air conditioning works as part of a specific hot loop/cold loop thermal management architecture. The water-cooled condenser, in addition to the watercooled charge air cooler, links the engine cooling loop to the A/C system. This innovative condenser uses water instead of air to liquefy air-conditioning refrigerant vapor.

Valeo’s water-cooled condenser significantly reduces fuel consumption and CO2 emissions when compared with conventional condensers.

It also reduces pressure fluctuations in the air conditioning system. What’s more, the water-cooled condenser does not need to be located in front of the radiator, which:

  • Frees up space for additional components in hybrid model
  • Reduces the radiator fan's electricity use by making it easier for air to circulate.

The condenser is mass produced for the new BMW 3 Series.


Focus on performance: SHP+ condensers

Valeo’s patented SHP+ condensers improve the cooling performance through re-designed micro-tubes and a compact crimping process.

This technology ensures a better thermal performance and a reduction of consumption (compressor torque reduction). This technology features in mass production on Asian and European vehicles since 2014.
