Heat Exchanger Service
DO YOU STRUGGLE WITH POLLUTION & CORROSION?
Charge air coolers (CACs) perform heavy duties in marine, off-road and stationary diesel, and gas engines.
Over time pollutants in the combustion air and cooling circuit can cause corrosion and a buildup of deposits in the fins and tubes.
This can lead to a strong loss of performance and/or to a total failure of the unit.
It can also happen that fins inside the heat exchanger bundle come loose or water leakages occur. In both cases, quick and correct action is required.
K°NOW HOW TO SOLVE IT !
Kelvion offers a professional and sustainable refurbishment of charge air coolers.
Depending on the respective condition of the units and the severity of the pollution and corrosion, we offer different levels of refurbishment. Starting with Level 1 (focusing on cleaning and repair), up to Level 4 (exchange/replacement of the whole unit).
But in between we can also carry out cooler retubing. When cleaning is no longer sufficient, a retubing is the next and most sustainable method of charge air cooler refurbishment.
Compared to cleaning it has many advantages:
Heat exchange performance can be ensured due to new fins and tubes
Not only exterior cleaning / refurbishment
No plugged tubes → heat transfer performance
No pollution of inner cooler core
No dissolved, dismantled, or loose fins → prevention of secondary failures
No leakages due to dissolved gasket materials
Tested mechanical connections by pressure test
Tested equipment with certificates/reports
EXTENDED LIFE CYCLE
RE-USING PARTS IS MORE ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY
COST SAVINGS: UP TO 30% LESS THAN NEW EQUIPMENT
NEW GAS SIDE / FIN SIDE

EFFECTS ON YOUR PRODUCT LIFE CYCLE
Corrosion and a buildup of deposits in fins and tubes of a Charge Air Cooler can lead to a total failure of your motor or engine in the worst case.
This must be prevented.
With our Charge Air Cooler Refurbishment Program, you can not only prevent performance loss and downtimes, but also extend the total life cycle of the cooler, which means higher profitability, too.
Contribution to the environment
As a result, the technical service life of a product is increased, fewer new products will therefore have to be produced overall in order to provide a required function on a permanent basis. This saves not only money, but also decreases both the material and the energy consumption for a sustainable business.
