Charge Air Coolers

Service for Compact Fin Heat Exchangers

As part of marine, off-road and stationary diesel and gas engines charge air coolers particularly are confronted with heavy duties. Over time pollutants in the air or gas mixture can cause corrosion and accumulation of deposits in the tubes. This can lead to pressure loss that can damage the turbocharger and cylinder in the engine room and which can also lead to water leakage. Regular servicing will extend the lifetime as well as prevent downtime of the engines. The Kelvion Service includes cleaning and testing, recoiling, repairs, leak detection, and reverse engineering of this critical component in the engine, and keeps your application running smoothly.

Replacement of latest cooling bundles

Diesel and gas engines release particulates into the air which can enter open cooling water circuits and lead to an accumulation of deposits in the charge air cooler tubes. If the tubes become blocked, leakages in the joints and seals will occur. Pollutants will also corrode the fins. If the engine is started without an effective cooling water circuit, the vibrations may cause cracks in the cooler tubes and sidewalls. Kelvion recoils the coolers with new inserts, using the latest modifications, to allow optimum efficiency and reliability. Upgrades with copper-nickel alloys, stainless steel or titanium tubes and new thermal calculations are available. All repairs and modifications are subject to thorough testing. The Kelvion Service also includes replacing equipment at planned intervals, cleaning and testing and exchange programs.
