As development partner and original equipment supplier, the company channels the full gamut of media flows in the auto and many other key industries. The product range extends from hose components through to complex line systems. The development and production of perfect-fit connection technology likewise demonstrate the company's systems expertise. The customers profit from this one source, capable of offering the full complement of fluid solutions. This business unit of Hannover, Germany-based ContiTech AG scores, moreover, with its wide-ranging material and process competence, extending from rubber technology through to plastics technology.

These include heatable hose modules, developed for 'Selective Catalytic Reduction' (SCR) technology, as well as hoses and hose lines for particulate filter systems.
The optimum integration of hoses, tubing and fittings enables ContiTech Fluid Technology to produce tight connections for AC units. So the revamped ECO AC product range, made up of air conditioning lines and internal heat exchanger, make air conditioning units more efficient. The weight and amount of refrigerant used have also both been reduced. The components are suitable for both the refrigerant R134a and the new refrigerant R1234yf. Whether it's hose material sold by the meter, molded hoses or complete line systems with integrated functional parts – also for heating and cooling circuits – the components and complex modules developed meet the most exacting requirements, in terms of flexibility, pressure and temperature resistance.
Charge air hoses and lines have to withstand ever higher pressures and temperatures. ContiTech develops and produces solutions that meet the most demanding performance requirements for tricky clearance situations. In response to direct customer orders, ContiTech additionally develops specific solutions for hydraulic and electro-hydraulic power steering. In the case of brake and clutch systems, the product range runs from pressure-resistant and thermally stable rubber hose lines through to compressed air brake line harnesses, with a practical plug connection – all tailored to the customers' specific needs.
