Get To Know Your Charge-Air Cooler

Today, charge-air coolers are used on virtually every heavy-duty truck. they are essential to meet engine manufacturers’ design objectives for horsepower, fuel economy, and exhaust emissions.

The trend toward smaller sized engines producing higher horsepower places increased stress on critical performance components such as turbochargers and charge-air coolers. boost pressures have driven cooler inlet temperatures from around 325°F during the 70’s and 80’s, to over 400°F in later model engines.

A typical cooler operating with slightly over 400°F inlet temperature will drop the boosted air’s temperature to just over 100°F before it enters the engine. this drop of nearly 300°F causes extreme thermal stresses from expansion and contraction of the entire structure. these stresses along with engine load variances and chassis vibrations cause frequent fatigue failures, the majority being cracked header plates and air tubes (see image on page 2).
