Abstract

A cooling module for a truck usually consists of a number of coolers such as a radiator, a charge air cooler, a condenser, an EGR-cooler and sometimes also a condenser. If the cooling system is of an indirect type the charge air cooler could be replaced by a second radiator. Some coolers have their tubes in a vertical direction and some coolers have their tubes in a horizontal direction If a mixed type of cooling module is chosen for different reasons the first, from an air flow point-of-view, heat exchanger's tanks will obstruct the air flow for the next heat exchanger and thus decreasing the performance of the unit. One possible solution is then to make larger holes through the tanks to enable the air to flow cross through to the next heat exchanger. This method to increase the air-flow can also be used on cooling modules with heat exchangers with different sizes and if a down-flow configuration is chosen. There can be advantages such as performance and strength with having a mixed configuration of heat exchangers in the cooling module.
