Performance Flow Testing
Flow Testing is the second phase of our racing services package. This allows us to provide performance data for any given cooler type and core configuration. We record the history of an active heat exchanger throughout its working life. This allows us to monitor any changes in the performance of the unit as it progresses through time.
In preparation for flow testing, we flush all of the coolers to eliminate any contamination of the flow rig prior to the test. If the unit is oil related, an additional flushing process is required to remove all oil and contaminant deposits. We can flow up to 2 gallons (10 liters) per second, and typically provide five flow rates from the maximum flow to a minimum. We record the pressure drop in Bar which is accurate to two decimal places.
