Copper-free heat exchangers on show at Automotive Testing Expo 2013

Heat exchanger and oil cooler manufacturer Bowman will exhibit a new range of copper-free in-line fuel coolers at this year’s Automotive Testing Expo Europe.
Generating a flood of interest and orders for Bowman from test houses, including a leading car manufacturer, the new product will be showcased at Germany’s Messe Stuttgart on June 4, 5 and 6.
According to the global supplier, stainless steel in-line ‘plate’ type heat exchangers are the industry standard for cooling fuel on automotive test bed engines, however, the latest ethanol-based fuels cause copper to be leached into the ethanol and deposited on to the fuel injection system - with the risk of performance problems and failures.
Bowman says it has solved the problem by developing a heat exchanger with a unique brazing compound that totally eliminates copper from the manufacturing process and the risk of it entering the fuel injection system. The units can be installed directly into the fuel line without the need to modify pipe work and exhaustive testing has proven that they work reliably and efficiently on ethanol based fuels, even at 100% levels.
The copper-free fuel coolers are part of an extensive range of test house equipment renowned for its high performance cooling efficiency and reliability by OEM’s and motorsport teams. Bowman’s range includes charge air coolers, oil coolers, exhaust gas heat exchangers, fuel coolers, header tank heat exchangers, all backed by full technical advice, product support and rapid ex-stock delivery.
