WEIGHT REDUCTION: Welding can reduce aluminum’s yield strength by up to 80%. Because Mezzo’s modular intercoolers bolt together, the aluminum used maintains its temper. Because of this, significant weight savings can be realized over welded designs. Bolted intercoolers also allow designers to use higher strength, non-weldable alloys, further increasing weight savings.
ADJUSTABLE PERFORMANCE: If the customer discovers that thermal loads are different than originally expected after initial testing, fabricating and installing new cores with different thermal performance is simple and much cheaper than building an entirely new intercooler.
REDUCED MAINTENANCE COST: In the event a core is damaged or fouled, the shell and caps of the intercooler may be reused, thus reducing maintenance and replacement costs.
EASE OF MAINTENANCE: The ability to remove the tanks and gain access to the end of the cores allows the user to flush and dry the unit much more thoroughly.
Our customers require very high performance. We take great pride in designing, fabricating, and delivering products that meet your specifications on schedule and on budget. We are motivated by new, challenging projects and have both the engineering and manufacturing capabilities needed to complete the entire engineering process from concept to finished product.
