AeroVee Turbo Cooling System Preliminary Report: 02.06.18

Postby markschaible » Tue Feb 06, 2018 5:39 pm

Hello SonexBuilders.net!

Sonex Aircraft is pleased to report on the preliminary results of our testing with a liquid cooling system for the AeroVee Turbo’s turbocharger bearing block.

Summary of system and testing results:
  • Max bearing block temperatures of approximately 211 degrees – a dramatic 118 degrees F reduction in maximum bearing block temperatures from the original AeroVee Turbo configuration (an approx. 60 degree reduction in temperatures from the current configuration per ACV-SB091616-1B and current AeroVee Turbo installation manuals).
  • Total system weight under 5 lbs with coolant.
  • Radiator location is flexible for tighter installations such as the Onex or Legacy Sonex Aircraft.

See the full, detailed report with pictures and data on the Hornets’ Nest R&D web site at: http://www.sonexaircraft.com/research/updates/aeroveeturbo/aeroveeturbo_update_020618.html

We will continue to post new testing data and details of system availability in the coming weeks as our work on this project progresses.
