Water-cooled charge air cooling
Charge air cooling, also known as intercooling, is an essential part of the modern combustion engine. A low intake air temperature means more oxygen and therefore lower fuel consumption. The specifically developed plate cooler with asymmetrical design brings compact size to your application.
Maximum back pressure
Due to emission requirements, a very low resistance for the turbo air circuit applies to all engines with turbos. Excessive back pressure in the intake circuit will make it more difficult for the exhaust gases to escape, which will cause combustion problems. Oversluizen has gained a lot of experience with built-in controls over the years and knows what is needed to deliver the right solution in 1 go.
