Charge Air Coolers from heat exchanger specialist, EJ Bowman, are helping to cool diesel engines that will be a key part of the new Durban to Gauteng Pipeline - South Africa’s largest pipeline project.
Commissioned by state-owned Transnet, the $2bn project consists of two multi-product pipelines, of 544 km and 160km between Durban and Johannesburg. The pipelines will provide additional capacity to meet demand for the transport of fuel from the coast to Gauteng were scheduled for completion in December 2011.
The Bowman JK 190 Charge Air Coolers were supplied through Davron Equipment, which is one of the largest suppliers and installers of fire pump and associated equipment within Southern Africa. The units have been fitted to each of the eight Cummins diesel engines used on the installation and provide efficient cooling of turbo charged air, improving engine performance and fuel efficiency, whilst helping to reduce emissions.
