The intercooler is a heat exchanger which cools the compressed
air feeding the engines of cars equipped with a turbocompressor.
Turbo compressor supercharging, an ever more widespread system, allows to
increase the power of an engine, even if of small capacity, by
compressing a larger amount of air into the engine hence a greater
amount of fuel. During compression, the air tends to warm up and its
density is reduced. This partly thwarts the effect of compression
itself. The intercooler's effect is exactly that of reducing the
temperature of compressed air allowing to fully exploit supercharging.
The attention paid to reducing emissions and fuel consumption leads to
the search for components that enhance engine efficiency and the
intercooler is precisely one of these. DENSO Thermal Systems S.p.A. owns
a company dedicated to the development of intercoolers and avails
itself of climatic chambers and road-tests to check the efficiency of
its systems under running conditions that are as close as possible to
the real conditions under which customers use their cars.
