‍Davron is acknowledged by Bowman for use of Bowman’s new Charge Air Coolers on the Transnet pipeline. Bowmans Charge Air Coolers have been specified on equipment for South Africa’s largest pipeline project.

In January 2012, new pipelines transporting fuel from Durban to Gauteng, opened for business – and Bowman JK190 Charge Air Coolers are being used to cool the air from the turbo chargers on the diesel engine driven pump sets. Commissioned by Transnet, the multi-products pipelines of 544 km and 160km will help meet demand for transporting fuel from the Coast to Gauteng.

Each of the eight Cummins diesel engines used on the installation has been fitted with a JK190 to provide efficient cooling of air from the turbo charger, improving engine performance and fuel efficiency whislt helping to reduce emissions.

The units were supplied through Davron Equipment, one of the largest suppliers and installers of fire pump and associated equipment within South Africa – and Davron has already ordered a further eight JK190 Coolers for use on a variety of other projects in South Africa.

Jamie Pratt, Bowmans Sales Manager said, “our charge air cooler product programme is currently one of the most comprehensive ranges available. Its complete reliability in some of the most challenging operational environments worldwide has been a key factor in its success”.

Due to the success of the JK190 Bowman has developed a new larger, Charge Air Cooler the PK190 – for engines up to 800 kW. The unit is released for sale and is available for rapid delivery.
