To select your intercooler core, you must determine the core thickness. These dimensions are A (core thickness), B (core height) and C (core length). In order to use the online inventory system you will first need to determine the flow patterns for your specific intercooler application. These flow patterns will provide you a point of reference to the accompanying diagram and will provide you with the key dimensions of your specific intercooler application.
The flow patterns that must be identified are Charge Air Flow and Ambient Air Flow or Liquid Flow. In layman’s terms, Charge Air Flow is the intake air moving within the induction system, from the turbo or supercharger to the cylinders. Ambient Air Flow or Liquid Flow is the air or liquid that passes through the core to cool the intake air (Charge Air Flow).
At Bell Intercoolers we understand that while the basic concept of intercooling is fairly straightforward, there are areas of theory and execution where even the most seasoned veteran could use some expert advice to create the best intercooler system for their application. Need help with proper core sizing and selection, tank design, or whether to use an Air/Air or Liquid/Air system? Our experienced engineers can help answer those questions for any performance, industrial or marine application.
We also provide development assistance to help you create the best intercooler for your automotive, racing, industrial or marine application.
