HGV Intercoolers are mechanical components that are used to cool the compressed air that is used in the combustion process in heavy goods vehicles (HGV) with turbocharged engines. Intercoolers work by reducing the temperature of the compressed air, which increases the density of the air and allows for more oxygen to be delivered to the engine. This leads to an increase in power and efficiency. The intercooler is typically a heat exchanger that is located between the turbocharger and the engine. It uses air or water to cool the compressed air before it enters the engine. They are typically made of aluminum, and are designed to withstand the high temperatures and pressure that are generated by the turbocharged engine. It is important to regularly check and maintain your intercooler as a damaged or clogged intercooler can cause engine performance issues and even engine failure.
