Liquid Cooling for Li-Ion Battery
Battery Liquid Cooling System for Electric Engines — In an effort to meet the modern demand for reduced carbon pollution, the Hyster-Yale Group is converting one of its diesel forklifts into an electric one. To aid in these efforts, this group has designed a modular liquid cooling system to help batteries maintain a safe temperature. The liquid cooling system can be upscaled or downsized for any future conversions, and makes the future – hot swapping any combustion engine for an electric system – closer to reality.
