Freeflex Core from Alleima wins Best Component Award at AWE 2024

Alleima has won the Best Component Award at Appliance & Electronics World Expo (AWE) 2024 for compressor valve steel Freeflex® Core. This award recognizes components and materials that make outstanding contributions to the overall performance of products.

The latest compressor valve steel, Freeflex® Core, from Alleima withstands stricter operating conditions and offers higher energy efficiency, which can contribute to significant CO₂ savings worldwide.

“We are delighted that Alleima has been honored with the Best Component Award at AWE 2024 for our compressor valve steel Freeflex® Core. The winning component or materials have demonstrated advanced technology and innovation, coupled with excellent quality and performance properties and positive feedback from customers. For us as a team, this achievement is as a testament to our dedication to innovation, and demonstrates our commitment to providing high-quality materials that exceed industry standards," says Remco Jongen, Global Product Manager.

The motivation for the award was:
“In order to enhance consumers' awareness of innovative and upgraded home appliances and consumer electronics, as well as high-quality and high-performance products, activate their potential demand for next-generation products, and promote the progress and upgrading of industries, technologies, and products, the Organizing Committee of the China Home Appliances and Consumer Electronics Expo found the AWE Award. Awards recognize products or solutions that have made outstanding contributions and significant impacts in various aspects such as industry technology trends, product innovation, consumer guidance, energy conservation and environmental protection".

In 2012-2022, the energy efficiency of cooling systems was improved by about 18% using new valve materials and improved design, strength, and mechanical properties. This is equivalent to the output of five modern nuclear power plants (50 TWh) and provides CO₂ savings of over 21 million tons.

Freeflex® Core was launched in 2021 and is a compressor valve steel optimized for air conditioning units, and can also be used in heat pumps, refrigerators or almost any type of compressor. The compressor valve steel has enhanced fatigue properties, developed to be exposed to tougher operational conditions that are critical for designing more energy efficient compressors.

“Freeflex generally has better wear resistance, better bending fatigue, and better impact fatigue resistance, which means that it lasts longer and is particularly suitable for AC requirements likelow noise level,” says Guofan Zhang, Senior Application Specialist.
