    Overview


    In operation, 350° F turbocharger compressor discharge air is routed through large diameter primary pipes to a new, low restriction, high-efficiency air/water heat exchanger core. The hot air is cooled within 50°F of the facility water. In other words, it the facility water temperature is 90° F, the 350°F air is returned to the engine at 140°. This is a 210°F reduction in air temperature. Exhaust temperatures are reduced an equal amount. The cooled air is returned to the engine through large diameter secondary pipes. The system’s pressure drop is less than 2 PSI due to large primary and secondary pipes, as well as an extremely low restriction heat exchanger.

    The temperature control system utilizes a dedicated temperature controller, which is programmable either by its panel buttons or via a serial link to the control software system. The controller also reports the air temperature back to the control system via the serial link. The temperature controller regulates the cooling water through the heat exchanger as required to cool 1,000 SCFM of up to 350°F air to 140°F with only 2 PSI drop using less than 20 GPM facility water.
