ULTRAFLEX: Molded hose with fabric reinforcement
The downsizing of engines is placing increasingly stringent demands on turbocharger lines. By literally injecting some “fresh air”, our charge air line system is able to safely generate a high power output.
Our charge air systems are developed and manufactured in Asia, Europe and North America on the basis of a global project management standard. Our extensive in-house compounding expertise allows for the optimum combination of materials, which can be supplemented with electronic components.
For various passenger car applications - for example, use between the engine and the charge air cooler or the charge air cooler and air intake manifold - we manufacture extruded and wrapped hoses. Our short, highly flexible molded hoses (Ultraflex) do the trick wherever complex clearances combine with increasingly stringent requirements in terms of pressure, temperature and dynamics. Our 3D blow molded and injection molded charge air tubes are especially popular thanks to the savings they offer in terms of weight and cost. Resonators provide additional optimized acoustic properties.
Charge air hoses and hose lines by Continental meet the most stringent of requirements when it comes to withstanding high pressures and temperatures.
Operating pressure of up to 500 kPa (overpressure).
Hybrid hoses with extruded inner layer and wrapped outer layer.
Cost-efficient charge air tubing thanks to the integration of brackets and system components.
Air intake hoses and ducts for passenger cars
Hose lines for turbocharger systems
