Charge Air System

Atmospheric air contain dust,impurities,moisture & different gasses. For the complete combustion of fuel properly treated air necessary.The temperature,humidity,purity and flow rate maintained by charge air system.Several steps and equipments are used in charge air system.
General Description

There are two major components of a charge air system, the turbocharger and the charge-air cooler (or inter cooler). These products work in conjunction with one another and most often than not when one is working irregularly the other is also.
The air from the atmosphere first filtrate in primary air filter where dust(usually big size)separated from charge air.Then passed through oil bath chamber where rest of dusts are filtrated.Then passed through the turbocharger where charge air compressed,the temperature also increased,so used a cooling system named charge air cooling system.Compressed charge air passed through inter cooler where charge air cooling water used as a cooling fluid.Then through intake manifold and expansion piece charged into combustion chamber.
