Conflux’s Water Charge Air Cooler

Our ultra-high performance WCAC delivers significant reductions in core volume, air-side pressure drop and weight.

When benchmarked against the leading microtube WCAC, for the same heat transfer we saw:

82% reduction in water side pressure drop
39% reduction in wet weight
24% reduction in air-side pressure drop
15% smaller core volume

How could improvements like these help your team?

Heat transfer applications for the Automotive & Motorsports Industry

  • Water charge air cooler
  • Engine oil cooler
  • Transmission oil cooler
  • Differential cooler
  • Inverter heat exchanger
  • Battery cooling
  • Waste heat recovery heat exchanger
  • EGR Cooler
  • Fuel Cooler
  • Oil-water heat exchanger
  • Power assisted steering cooler
  • Intercooler
  • Additive manufactured Heat Exchangers for Automotive & Motorsports

    The motorsport industry has been an early adopter of additive manufacturing. For over a decade, many motorsport teams have harnessed this technology and its ability to advance prototyping and design innovation in compressed time frames.

    In the automotive industry, AM has created new opportunities for lighter and safer product designs with shorter lead times.

    Many OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) are using AM for prototyping. Conflux works alongside OEM customers for creating heat exchange solutions while providing a risk reduced pathway to serial production.

    Innovation from F1 lineage

    We’ve driven innovation from our team's lineage in Formula 1 into proven motorsport, hypercar and high automotive applications by:

    • Leading the competition on performance, size and weight with our new water charge air cooler (WCAC)
    • Supplying configured, compact heat exchangers to Formula 1, WRC and Formula E
    • Reducing five components into a single monolithic part heat exchanger for a World Rally Championship team

    The Benefits of Additive Manufacturing:

    • Higher Performance through a combination of AM-enabled three dimensional surface geometries and an ever present drive for thinner walls.
    • Lighter weight offering first order efficiencies for both motorsport and automotive.
    • Smaller / conformal shapes that offer packaging options unobtainable with traditional manufacturing
    • Part consolidation - the amalgamation of components and sub-assemblies have positive impacts on the entire supply chain from ordering to handling, storage and dispatch of finished articles.
