Charge air coolers

In order to improve engine performance, there needs to be sufficient air present for each amount of fuel, to obtain optimal incineration. In order to provide the gas- or diesel engine with this amount of oxygen, about 25 times the amount of fuel needs to be provided in oxygen, for optimal incineration.

This amount of air is realized by compressing air using a turbo chargers, this means that the air from the turbo has a higher density and a temperature of 250 to 260 degrees Celsius. Both the Tier and the Euro standards determine maximum values. Turbo air temperatures and maximum pressure drops are part of these values.

The charge air cooler goes by a lot of difference names such as: turbo (air) cooler, inter cooler etc. This cooler was designed to cool down the compressed heated air. In order to be able to completely use it, this air needs to be injected back into the engine with about 50 degrees Celsius at 25 degrees outside temperature. Due to this low oxygen temperature, the engine is able to meet the Tier and Euro standards. The coolers are usually cooled by means of a fan, which uses ambient air to cool down the turbo air.

In addition, Oversluizen is happy to announce a new product, the water cooled turbo air cooler for industrial engines.
This new water cooled turbo air cooler is the ultimate solution for applications in which the cooling installation cannot be installed near the motor. Due to the additional pipe distance, a higher pressure drop will occur (turbo out – engine in) than prescribed by the standard. In collaboration with Nissens, Oversluizen has developed an efficient, compact, easily mountable solution, without making compromises with regard to performance.
