2 more PATENTs of Invention for defogging performance improvement

A.C.Vagni, our CEO, has shared a number of patents of invention with Ford of Europe (Germany), as a result of his work contribution on HVAC system development for the Ford Focus IV. He adviced on specific parts design with a scientific approach focusing on performance improvement and cost reduction whilst taking care on multidisciplinary attributes.

In this opportunity, we can show some new patents related to interior aerodynamic devices, i.e. the Special Demisting Turbulators.

Patent description

passive aero-devices for a quicker de-ice/defrost/demist of vehicle rear window and eventually applicable to side windows.

The rear windows of most hi-performance aerodynamic vehicles (sedans, coupés) are at bigger risk of fogging issue (condensation on the glasses of air humidity present in the occupant cabin) due to they are more exposed to “glazing surface wind chill” effect whilst driving than the backlights of any other kind of vehicle.

This is a concern of driver visibility and aesthetics (means it gives a not welcome image of the vehicle to the viewers).

The devices act on airstream characteristics in order to help the air-conditioning systems to fulfil defogging requirement (aero-thermodynamic effect).

Research has been conducted at Ford Environmental Wind Tunnel of Germany.
