For new engines and as replacements.
The energy mix in the last decade changed worldwide towards renewables. One of the growing segments is co-generation plants with biomass. For this application and all other kinds of gas powered engines, Vestas aircoil a/s can provide a reliable tailor made solution. Depending on the gas mix, the material combination will be selected to avoid corrosion and have a long period between the maintenance intervals.
Base for gas engine charge air coolers is the solid proven and tested compact fin technology. This can either be copper, tin coated or stainless steel.
Choosing the stainless-steel fin tube system means corrosion resistance is significantly increased compared with standard materials like copper or aluminum. Also, cleaning with detergents does not affect the stainless-steel system.
With the development of the high efficient Ultra Compact fin-tube system we are able in most cases to change to the reliable stainless-steel cooling system and keep the existing dimensions of the CAC.
Vestas aircoil already manufactures gas coolers for some of the words leading producers of engines using gas, many of them “dual fuel” (gas AND diesel). We also provide replacement air coolers for some engines. Please contact our sales teams for details.
