Intercooler / Charge air cooler
The intercoolers (Charge Air Coolers) are designed to reduce the fuel consumption while increasing the engine power and efficiency. The turbocharger increases the power and torque but also increases the compressed air temperature sent to the engine. The intercooler’s task is to reduce the temperature of the inlet gas and thus densify the air required which optimises the combustion. Valeo offers an aftermarket intercooler (Charge Air Cooler) range (mix of Gennuine and alternative range) benefiting from strong experience.
