Daimler introduces honeycomb radiator

  • Date
    20 September 1900
  • Description
    A patent is filed for the so-called honeycomb radiator as "cooling and condensation device based on the cross-flow principle". This new type of radiator with its high cooling capacity, protected by patent no. DRP 122 766 on 8 August 1901, is based on the tubular radiator developed by Wilhelm Maybach in 1897 and meets an important requirement for higher outputs in vehicle engine design.
  • Caption
    The honeycomb radiator was launched on September 20, 1900 (Patent no. DRP 122766) – an important precondition for further increases in the performance of vehicle engines. This innovation was based on the tubular radiator developed by Wilhelm Maybach in 1897. Illustration showing the honeycomb radiator developed by Wilhelm Maybach, which was used for the first time on the Mercedes 35 HP. The improved performance compared to the preceding models was attributable in part to the particularly efficient honeycomb radiator. The radiator design shown here with a rounded top corresponds to the variant which was used as of 1903.
