The truck intercooler is a radiator whose function is to reduce the intake temperature of the engine. The intercooler looks like a water tank radiator, but unlike the water tank radiator, the air flowing inside is.
The most common intercooler cooling methods for trucks are: water-cooled intercooler and air-cooled air-cooled intercooler: The so-called air cooling refers to the intercooler that uses air as a medium for heat dissipation.
Truck air-cooled intercoolers generally need to be arranged in front of the front, when the vehicle is driving, the external air flow through the grille of the intercooler for heat exchange, cooling the high temperature air inside the intercooler.
Truck water-cooled intercooler: The so-called water cooling is an intercooler that uses liquid as a medium for cooling.
This cooling system generally shares a cooling water tank with the engine cooling system, and some models also use independent cooling systems.
The advantages of truck air cooling are: simple structure, good cooling effect, but it needs to be installed in the front end of the vehicle, increasing the length of the intake pipe. The accumulated pollutants will also cause a decrease in cooling efficiency and need to be cleaned regularly. This is why many truck drivers install bug nets in the front during the summer.
The advantages of truck water cooling are: the pipeline layout is flexible, can be arranged near the engine intake manifold position, reduce the lengthy intake pipeline, because it is not exposed, it is not easy to appear dirty problems, but the disadvantage of water cooling pipeline is relatively complex, there is a certain leakage potential.
How to maintain the truck intercooler?
The truck’s intercooler is the same as the cooling water tank, without special maintenance. The only thing to note is that the surface of the intercooler should be cleaned frequently to avoid excessive coverage of foreign pollutants, resulting in reduced cooling effect.
How about, after watching today’s old driver class, finally understand the relationship between turbochargers and intercoolers for “good gay friends”? Because the working principle of the turbocharger leads to a high intake temperature, which affects the efficiency of the engine, an intercooler is needed to suppress the intake temperature, so it is much simpler.
Well, today’s introduction to the intercooler is here, and the next old driver class we will talk about the functions of the radiator, water tank, warm air tank and condenser.
