NRF at Automechanika Frankfurt
As a leading aftermarket supplier NRF is of course present at the Automechanika in Frankfurt. This year NRF moved to a more central location in Hall 3.0.

New product groups
NRF expanded their air conditioning product range with 3 new product groups. During the Automechanika was the official launch of these product groups:
▪ Compressor clutches
The compressor is the heart of the A/C system. When it breaks down, the compressor usually needs to be replaced. In some situations when a failure occurs, it is also possible to change only the compressor clutch.
NRF introduces a new range of 59 compressor clutches. With this range NRF offers compressor clutches for the most common A/C compressors on the market.
▪ Compressor oil
As a leading supplier of compressors, NRF now added compressor PAG oil to their range. The range of NRF exists of the PAG oils in different viscosities including for the new R1234YF refrigerant. And POE oils for hybrid/electrical applications.
▪ Blower motor resistors
Blower resistors are resistors which are used to control the fan speed of automotive blowers. NRF offers a range of 90 blower motor resistors, covering 200+ OE numbers.
EGR cooler range expansion
