Ellet Radiator Handles Semi Trucks Charge Air Cooler Needs

October 3, 2014 Ellet Radiator Service

Ellet Radiator handles all charge air cooler needs. Charge air coolers, also known as intercoolers or aftercoolers allow an engine to work more efficiently. There are several types of charge air coolers including air to air and air to liquid. Regardless of the type, the principles of how they work are the same. Semi trucks’ charge air coolers cool air before it passes into the turbocharger, thus expending less heat during the combustion process and making the engine more efficient. This process allows for several distinct advantages.

Plan to Have Ellet Radiator Service Your Charge Air Cooler Before a Problem Occurs

Half of semi truck charge air cooler failures are the result of cracks that form in the tubes which then result in leaks. Because these cracks form over time, the failure of a charge air cooler is often a gradual event. A semi truck operator may not be aware that their charge air cooler is breaking down until damage has already been done, resulting in the loss of time and money.
