Modern engine mechanics

Charge air coolers were introduced for OTR truck engines in the 1970s to improve

  • power output;
  • fuel efficiency; and
  • operating temperature.

Since their introduction in the trucking industry, charge air coolers have undergone substantial design improvements and modifications, making them suitable for use in other industrial and heavy equipment. The most recent advancements have made them suitable for tow motors.

Tow motors charge air coolers

Charge air coolers for tow motors work on the same principles as charge air coolers for other industrial equipment. Air is usually compressed by a mechanically or electrically powered blower and then cooled by the charge air cooler. It is the resulting compressed and cooled air that optimizes tow motor engine performance.

As in other industrial applications, tow motors charge air coolers are subjected to extremely harsh conditions, operating in several hundred degrees, under tremendous pressure, and with constant vibrations and other destructive forces.
