The “CuproBraze Heat Exchangers” Series (2004)
Part 1: Engines (pdf)
Manufacturers of engines for heavy-duty trucks and industrial applications must find ways to increase performance and fuel efficiency while meeting strict emissions standards. One solution is new clean diesel engine designs with charge air coolers (CACs) made of copper and brass, using the CuproBraze technology. Such CACs are compatible with the high temperatures necessary to meet the next-generation of emission standards.
Part 2: Trucks/Buses (pdf)
The future of the trucking industry depends on advancements in engine development that increase efficiency and reduce emissions. Diesel engine efficiency can be increased and emissions reduced by intercooling by using a charge air cooler between the turbocharger and the engine to reduce the temperature and increase the density of the air charge.
Part 3: Automobiles (pdf)
The automotive industry is focused on producing automobiles that offer consumers exceptional performance and value while meeting environmental regulations. Increasingly, turbocharged diesel engines are a desirable power choice as they offer exceptional fuel efficiency and hence reduced CO2 emissions. The CuproBraze process gives manufacturers a technology for the development of new exhaust treatment and engine management techniques, while addressing important issues such as clean manufacturing and reliability.
Part 4: Offroad/Industrial (pdf)
Engine development for offroad vehicles and stationary generators is focused on performance and efficiency without sacrificing reliability. One way this can be accomplished is by improving the performance of the diesel turbocharger and the charge air cooler. The CuproBraze process enables manufacturers to implement exhaust gas recirculation to reduce emissions in their designs. Copper-brass charge air coolers offer performance and reliability at elevated temperatures.

The “Who is Gearing up with CuproBraze?” Series
Finnradiator (2007, pdf)
Founded as the Finnish Radiator Manufacturing Company Ltd (SJT)
in 1926 by three tinsmiths, Finnradiator initially, produced radiators for the automotive industry. As vehicle technology advanced, it expanded into other markets, including the design and production of charge air coolers (CACs), heaters and other fabricated sheet-metal products for heavy-duty trucks and off-road vehicles, primarily for construction and agricultural applications. Ever mindful of the need to stay ahead of the competition, Finnradiator management decided on the CuproBraze process for its next-generation of radiators and charge air coolers to maintain its competitive edge. In the process, the company’s reputation for quality and service has grown even further.
The “Design Criteria Redefined” Series
Like most automotive subsystems, heat exchangers are valuated in terms of two main criteria: product performance and manufacturing cost. These criteria can be further refined to the following eight factors:
