Custom designed in round shell and tube, or square engine and remote mounted fin designs, our high performance water cooled charge air coolers utilize extended surface cooling fins in either aluminium, copper, or stainless steel to ensure greater thermal effectiveness and durability. This means our customers receive superior performance at a practical price. For over 100 years, our heat exchangers have been trusted among equipment manufacturers in the transportation, power generation, construction, military and process industries.
Our Type ES extended surface shell and tube fin heat exchanger is the industry leader for intercooler and aftercooler performance. Its unique patented compact plate fin design provides superior cooling of large air volumes at low pressure drops which means less energy consumption.
Our Basco Type 500 remains the industry standard in ultimate value and long-term reliability. This proven fixed tubesheet shell and tube heat exchanger offers the cost effectiveness that comes with having a highly standardized design, while easily providing various options to meet specific customer requirements.
Our Basco Type 500 heat exchangers are manufactured in our ISO 9001 certified Buffalo, NY facility and our Suzhou, China facility. We employ Demand Flow Technology (DFT) manufacturing processes where finished goods are made “on-demand” from components and in-line support machining centers. We’ve invested heavily in DFT and embrace the superior quality, improved workflow, and cost controls inherent in DFT manufacturing.
A hairpin design is often more thermally efficient than a traditional shell and tube, which results in a lower up-front cost and lower overall weight. Our experienced designers and engineers can meet any custom cooling requirement.
