Heavy Duty Charge Air Coolers Available

A lot of today’s diesel engines normally rely on air to expand fuel economy and performance. With the summer’s heat steadily increasing, charge air coolers are definitely a must to have.

What is a charge air cooler, you may ask?

Charge air coolers are used to cool engine air after it has traveled through a turbocharger, but before it reaches the engine. A turbocharger is a turbine-driven forced induction device that boosts internal combustion engine efficiencies. From there, it powers its output by pushing additional air into the combustion cell. The idea of all of this is to return the air to a lower temperature for the combustion process within the engine. The higher the performance, the better the outcome.

Different Types of Charge Air CoolersCharge Air Coolers

These coolers vary in different shape and size, depending on the engine. At Southpointe Radiator, we have a huge selection of CAC with many brands to choose from. To list a few, we offer charge air coolers to trucks such as:

  • Ford-Sterling
  • Freightliner
  • Kenworth
  • Volvo
  • Western-Star

The smaller coolers are most often referred to as intercoolers, whereas the larger coolers are reserved for use on huge diesel engines. Coolers are air-to-air heat exchange devices that help to improve volumetric efficiency. Also, this typically happens when the air intake is increased through the cooling process. In addition, with Southpointe being in business for over 40 years, you can guarantee that we know everything there is to know about the cooling process. We are heating and cooling experts.
