Applications Engineering Manager
Colder Products Company
Andres currently leads a team of applications engineers focused on answering customers’ liquid cooling system and quick disconnect questions. He supports key clients with their technical needs as well as coaches his team to ask the questions and share the information that will best educate and serve customers in their journey to implementing liquid cooling.
Prior to this role at CPC, Andres worked as a product manager focused on EV customers, developing an understanding of their technical product requirements in order to influence the incorporation of value-add features into current and existing lines of liquid cooling connectors. He started at CPC five years ago as an applications engineer in CPC’s Thermal Management Business Unit.
Prior to joining CPC and becoming adept at understanding the benefits and opportunities with liquid cooling of electronics design applications, he worked as a product design engineer. Andres also has experience teaching mechanical engineering with a specialization in fabrication processes. He earned his bachelor’s degree and completed his master’s coursework at South Dakota State University in Brookings, SD.
The Compatibility Imperative in Liquid Cooling for EV Charging Applications
This presentation is focused on educating engineers about the wetted loop for liquid cooling in EV systems and the imperative for chemical compatibility of all components. Engineers will learn how to identify and and mitigate risks associated with material compatibility issues. While the examples for this presentation are framed for EV charging or battery swap system design engineers, the information on component specification, material selection, chemical compatibility and incompatibility consequences is relevant for all engineers designing liquid cooling systems regardless of application or market.
