Laminova Intercooler Inlet Manifold

Laminova heat exchangers are especially designed for intercoolers in turbo and supercharged petrol and diesel engines. The heat exchangers are compact, easy to install and more efficient than conventional coolers.

Laminova heat exchanger systems have a unique designed core for intercooler applications. The air-to-liquid system gives increased efficiency compared to an air-to-air system. With the air-to-liquid system you will get cold air right from the start.

Benefits
    * Superior cooling performance
    * Extremely low pressure drop
    * Ideal to integrate in the inlet manifold
    * Increased response due to short flow length in the system
    * Robust design. One-piece aluminium extrusion
    * No soldering or braising - soft mounting with O-rings
    * Reduced noise and pulsation. Improved airdistribution balance

The high performance, compared to that of the common plate style intercoolers, is a result of the extremely large surface area and the unique flow pattern. Laminova core design gives an extremely low pressure drop on the charged air side.

With intercooler cores installed, you achieve better torque, response and performance
compared to those of conventional coolers. The coolers effectively increase engine efficiency and decrease fuel consumption.

The air-to-liquid intercooler system needs a separate cooling circuit with a circulation pump and a separate radiator. Laminova also supplies intercooler housings for use in racing/aftermarket applications and as prototypes for test and evaluation.
