The Charged Air Core surface is a copper fin/brass tube heat transfer matrix specifically designed for industrial Charged Air to Air cooling.
The product incorporates the traditional heavy-duty features offered by a plate fin and tube core construction, combined with the industry leading UltraFused tube to header joint technology.
Combining these two manufacturing technologies makes a product that is ideally suited to the harshest of operating environments and is truly a unique, fit-for-purpose engine cooling solution.
The Charged Air Core is a highly flexible design, which can be tailored to suit specific applications with minimal design and tooling effort. The option of Solder Coated (SC) fin material provides added external corrosion protection for extreme environments.
Our Charged Air Core provides the solution for the most demanding Charged Air Cooler applications.
This patented technology is a quantum leap forward in Charge Air Cooler design and provides the platform to meet the increasing demands of the diesel engine industry.
Utilising the unique silicon grommet tube-to-header joint design, this product is suited to On and Off Highway applications and is proven to provide a level of performance and durability, far in excess of mainstream brazed aluminium Charge Air Coolers.
Conventional brazed charge air coolers are prone to a relatively short service life as a result of failures in tubes, tube to header joints, headers and manifolds.
These premature failures usually result from excessive stresses caused by the effects of thermal expansion, cyclic internal pressures and mechanical loads such as racking, twisting and vibration which is often associated with on and off highway vehicles such as trucks, buses, and specialty vehicles.
Bar and Plate
Bar and Plate is a high strength heat transfer surface that offers a wide range of flexibility in design, construction and application.
Manufactured entirely of aluminum, this composite matrix offers excellent thermal efficiency combined with suitability to high pressure applications.
The modular construction method allows the matrix to be configured to suit a variety of internal fluids, including aqueous solutions (water based engine coolants), gases (compressed air, engine turbo air) and oils.
The design uses internal turbulators to enhance the thermal performance of the core surface and provide important structural support to the overall matrix.
Bar and Plate is suited to operating pressures up to 500psi (3450 kPa), and our construction method allows coolers to be readily configured to suit specific thermal and dimensional requirements.
Bar and Plate is a key component in Air Radiators’ tailored, fit-for-purpose heat transfer solutions.
Pin Fin coolers are a high thermal efficiency heat transfer matrix comprising of helically wound copper wire mechanically bonded to the base tube via solder.
Pin Fin coolers suit a wide variety of air-blast cooling applications including process liquids and gasses, oil, diesel fuel, high pressure water and steam. We manufacture Pin Fin coolers using a variety of base tube materials including copper, brass, copper/nickel, aluminium/brass, carbon steel, stainless steel and specialty metals like titanium.
We add wire-wound internal turbulators to enhance thermal performance for viscous fluids such as oil, and for certain gasses, including compressed air and steam.
As the density of the external fin and internal turbulator are variable, we can readily optimize Pin Fin to suit your individual application.
Select from a standard range of models or alternatively, we can custom design coolers for your specific application.
