Metal fitting cuts refrigerant leakage

Visteon Corp.
What: Metal-to-metal assembled seal fitting for mobile air conditioning systems
Innovation: The fitting uses a gasket of soft copper coated with tin with an elastomeric seal to firmly connect the fitting’s aluminum male and female halves. The metal-to-metal fitting reduces pollution-causing refrigerant leakage by at least two-thirds over common fittings and improves and simplifies production.
First customer: Ford Focus, November 2011
