Further boosting the products' fuel efficiency is a new cooling system, says Roux, explaining that the setup employs multiple electric fans that independently monitor hydraulic oil, radiator, and air-to-air aftercooler temperatures to deliver the exact airflow required.
An air-to-air aftercooler system optimises the air induction with benefits in terms of efficiency and reduced fuel consumption.
The compressors' compact and lightweight package mean that despite incorporating a full-size fuel tank, aftercooler and generator, all models fall below 750 kg.
On page 20, while apparently discussing the NA-73 (Mustang MK I, XP-51), which had an Allison V-1710 engine, Graff describes the under-fuselage duct as containing "the airplane's watercooling radiator, oil cooler, and aftercooler.
The IMT CAS80R compressor features a hydraulic aftercooler that is integrated into the compressor design, minimizing weight and the physical footprint on top of the body sidepack.
It has now been field tested by automotive OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers with the aim of replacing high-temperature nylons such as PPA and nylon 46 in turbo ducts and aftercooler end tanks.
The air compressor has a unique belt-guard-mounted aftercooler, automatic tank drain and centrifugal head unloading feature that extends the life of the pump.

1 L diesel, has ratings up to 375 hp at 2400 rpm and is a six-cylinder, electronically controlled engine with an air-to-coolant aftercooler and a water-cooled exhaust.
The 2nd stage aftercooler and 1st stage condenser are not explicitly modeled, rather they are assumed to be sufficiently large such that the fluid exiting the compressors is cooled to ambient temperature [T.
