Vestas produces its charge air coolers using a range of fin geometries.
Limitations on the maximum size a fin can be produced traditionally led to a restriction of the width of the fin. Thus, coolers in the past are built with multiple smaller fin “elements”.
Vestas has extended its maximum fin width to 77 tubes wide, big enough for almost all size of coolers – we call it a “MonoBlock” element.
A MonoBlock combined with a full integral support plate means there is effectively a one-piece element. Fewer components means a more robust air cooler. Perfect where there is vibration.
