Meet MÜNZING virtually at STLE's Tribology & Lubrication for E-Mobility Conference
Don’t miss out on learning about 'The Effects of Foam and Air Entrainment and Defoamer Performance in Electric Vehicle Fluids' presented by Safia Peerzada, of Münzing North America, LP at #STLE’s Tribology & Lubrication for E-Mobility Conference Thursday, December 1, 2022 Track 2: Testing 8:00 am – 8:30 am. Sign up for the virtual option and access the post-event digital proceedings of the technical presentations.
Green, eco-friendly, and sustainable technology has become the future of the automotive industry, causing a significant increase in the efforts to develop electric vehicles. The fluids required for electric vehicles exhibit different foaming and air entrainment tendencies compared to traditional automotive fluids due to the difference in system chemistry, which requires different defoamer types and test methods to simulate real world application. During use of the fluid, the defoamer functions to minimize foam buildup and entrained air, which is undesirable for reasons such as reduction of lubrication and heat removal. A study of foam tendency and air entrainment in electric vehicle fluids using new lab foam test methods will be reviewed. Furthermore, the performance of various defoamer chemistries will be studied to understand the most optimal defoamer type for electric vehicle fluids.
