Rayconnect has introduced a range of self-heating fluid connectors for integration into truck pollutant removal systems in the heavy-duty industry. The connectors help keep the tubing above -11°C (+12°F) to prevent the urea-based fluid used in the selective catalytic reduction process from freezing. The company is working to develop a compromise for energy consumed by these connectors, which have a power supply and are heated by a thermistor. The goal is to minimize energy consumption and reduce the circuit heating time in order to offer an economical alternative vs. externally heated connector systems.
